The CSU e-Verify process.

California Community College transfer applicants that meet the CSU minimum admission eligibility, are awarded an Associate Degree for Transfer (ADT/AA-T & AS-T) and apply to a program that has been deemed similar at the CSU are given priority admission consideration to impacted campus or programs and are guaranteed admission to a CSU campus.

The ADT eVerify site is an online portal that allows community colleges to access the roster of CSU applicants who have indicated they are pursuing an Associate Degree for Transfer and verify the status of ADT degrees for students directly with CSU campuses.

To have your AA/AS – T eVerified you MUST submit an SCC graduation petition by the SCC’s graduation deadline.

Students initiate this process by reporting their plan to transfer with an AA-T or AS-T to the CSU they wish to attend by submitting their CSU application and identifying themselves as an SCC – AA/AS – T transfer student.

When students submit their CSU application to the University they wish to attend, they are asked if they are planning to transfer. Students who identify themselves as SCC – AA/AS –T transfer students will have that information posted by the Chancellors office to the eVerify site. The Chancellors office will then open the eVerify site to Community Colleges for a short period of time to allow for the verification.

Once the eVerify site becomes available, SCC will automatically verify the degree status for those students who have submitted an AA/AS – T degree petition request with SCC by the petition deadline.

Applicants who do not identify as an AA/AS -T transfer student will not be included in the verification process.

  • Students who later need to correct their application and declare the AA/AS -T must contact each CSU campus to which they applied and request to update their information.
  • Students can request a paper verification from the SCC Admissions & Records Office and then submit the paper verification form to each CSU campus.

Once the e Verify site is closed to updates, CSU campuses download the verification data and use it to make priority admission decisions.

Note: CSU campuses grant priority admission based on the student’s transfer institution verification before the campus receives the student’s official transcript showing the degree awarded.

Receipt of the official transcript with the awarded AA-T or AA-T posted is the final verification. The deadline to submit official transcripts may vary slightly for each CSU but generally, fall admission requires final official transcripts by July 15, spring admission requires official transcripts by October 15.

The offer of admission to applicants who do not meet the condition of final verification and whose admission was based primarily on the AA-T and AS-T may be rescinded.
