CSU Planner

The CSU Transfer Planner will launch the week of January 8th, 2024!  You can easily search for CSU programs, learn their transfer requirements, and view general education requirements.  If eligible, you can enroll in a Transfer Success Pathway (TSP) agreement.

TSP is the process by which you can enter an agreement with a CSU and a particular major for later transfer.  You must meet the CSU program's requirements throughout the agreement period to be guaranteed admission.
