The California State University (CSU) system consists of 23 campuses and one of two public university systems in the state of California. Over 70 percent of the students who graduate from the CSU system enter as transfer students!  Almost 94% of transfer students at a CSU transferred from a California Community College!

Mendocino College has articulation agreements with CSU and University of California (UC).  These articulation agreements allow students to plan a transfer program in their desired major and transfer to specific university.  Mendocino College’s articulation with CSU and UC may be found at  For CSU General Education Breadth Requirements see below.


Associate Degrees logo

An Associate Degree for Transfer (ADT) is a degree offered at California Community Colleges. Students who earn an ADT degree meet the minimum eligibility requirements and guaranteed admission to a CSU, but not necessarily to a particular campus or major. In addition, once at the CSU, if admitted and enrolled in a designated similar degree program, students have the opportunity to complete the bachelor’s degree with as little as 60 semester units of coursework.
