Transfer Success Pathway

If you graduated from high school (or will graduate) in 2023, you may be eligible for the Transfer Success Pathway program, which guarantees you a spot at CSUSM after completing all requirements at the community college!

The Transfer Success Pathway program is intended to create a clear path to admission to the CSU for eligible high school graduates who have faced hardships that prevented them from attending. Beginning August 1, 2023, eligible students may apply to the program to:

    • Enter an agreement with CSUSM for guaranteed admission to a specific degree program, if all requirements are met
    • Receive guidance from a CSUSM Admissions Advisor 
    • Map out your community college coursework through the CSU Transfer Portal (coming soon)
