Transfer Success Pathway

For students who are planning to attend a California Community College (CCC) after high school, the Transfer Success Pathway (TSP) is a program that began with the high school graduating class of 2023 and provides a dual admission opportunity for eligible first-time, first-year who commit to transferring from a CCC to a California State University (CSU) within three years. The program is designed to increase access to the CSU for students who have faced academic, financial, or personal hardships that previously prevented them from attending.
