Is the ADT Pathway Right for You?

An ADT is a guaranteed pathway for transfer from a community college into a four-year university. But is it the right fit for your life and education goals? Read more about why students choose the ADT option.

What are the Requirements for ADT?

You must verify with APU that you have completed or will complete the ADT by the deadlines listed in the relevant ADT plan. You will receive priority admissions consideration by completing your ADT in a major similar to your intended major at Azusa Pacific.

After earning an Associate of Arts for Transfer (AA-T) or Associate of Science for Transfer (AS-T) degree from a college with an approved transfer plan, students are guaranteed admission to APU with junior standing.

Please note: The Associate Degree for Transfer (ADT) is different from other associate degrees offered by California Community Colleges.
