Additional Information

Transfer Success Pathway (TSP) is guided by the Governor's Council for Post-Secondary Education Recovery with Equity report and the Postsecondary Education Trailer Bill (AB 132).  The TSP program will help improve the student transfer experience while addressing potential equity issues as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, issues with academic preparation, and other challenges facing high school students. TSP represents an exceptional commitment by the CSU to bolster the connections with students during their community college enrollment. By offering guaranteed transfer and invaluable resources, this program paves the way for students to excel academically, overcome obstacles, and achieve their aspirations of attaining a four-year degree from California State University. Here are additional benefits you will receive:

  • Supportive Resources: As part of the Transfer Success Pathway program, students receive additional benefits, including pre-transfer counseling, direct access to CSU libraries, and essential financial aid information.
  • CSU Transfer Planner Portal: In the summer of 2023, the CSU Transfer Planner portal will launch to provide comprehensive support for the program. Students can utilize this portal to determine their program eligibility, explore available campuses and programs, and enter into a binding agreement.

Frequently Asked Questions


How many TSP agreements can a student have? 

A student can only have one TSP agreement with one major. They cannot enroll in multiple agreements with different campuses. 


If a student enters an agreement with another CSU, can they change the agreement at a later date?

During the filing period, August 1 - September 30, a student can ask to be removed from an agreement. If they wish to change to another campus or program, they must submit a request for release and allow time for the campus to review. Once the student is released, they may elect to do an agreement with another campus or program if it is within the filing period August 1 - September 30. 

If a student asks to be released after the filing period is over, the student cannot enroll in the Transfer Success Pathways Program.


If a student is deemed to be ineligible for the TSP Program, can they try to do an agreement with another school? 

No. If a student is deemed ineligible by any campus, they cannot enter into an agreement with any CSU campus. 

Students that are not enrolled in the TSP Program will still be able to utilize the CSU Transfer Planner.
