Transfer Resources



The Associate Degree for Transfer (AD-T) is a transfer pathway used for admission to one of the 23 California State Universities (CSU).  This option allows students to complete an Associate’s degree while satisfying lower division general education and major requirements for transfer.  Students who are awarded an AD-T degree are guaranteed admission with junior standing somewhere in the CSU system and given priority admission consideration to their local CSU campus or to a program that is deemed similar to their community college major.  For more information, contact the Counseling office to schedule an appointment with a counselor.  Go to the links at the top right of this page to see AD-Ts offered at Laney College.



University of California

Transfer Admission Guarantees (TAG) allows eligible students to enter into a contract with four-year universities.  These agreements provide guaranteed admissions upon fulfillment of the contract.  Six University of California (UC) campuses offer guaranteed admission to California community college students who meet specific requirements.  The filing period is September 1 – 30 for transfer in the fall semester of the next year.  We also have a  transfer admission agreement with Golden Gate University.  For more information, contact the Counseling office to schedule an appointment with a counselor before the deadline.  Go to the links at the top right of this page to see campuses who offer TAG programs.

HBCU (Historically Black Colleges & Universities)

California community college transfer students who meet certain academic criteria will be guaranteed admission to nine historically black colleges and universities.  Under the agreement, students who apply to the schools and obtain a transfer-level associate degree with a GPA of 2.5 or higher and complete either the University of California Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC), or the California State University General Education Breadth pattern, will be guaranteed admission with junior standing.
