Priority filing dates are when admission applications are due to the universities to which you plan to apply. Applications are due one year IN ADVANCE of your transfer date.
There is normally a one-month window of time when applications are accepted for a specific term at the CSU and UC systems. Please refer to the dates and deadlines within the CSU and UC application packets. If you can not obtain a CSU or UC application packet, the following is a generic calendar of filing dates:
|CSU FILING DATES||UC FILING DATES|
|Fall Semester||Oct. 1-Nov. 30||Fall Quarter||Nov. 1-30|
|Winter Semester||June 1-30||Winter Quarter||July 1-31|
|Spring Semester||Aug. 1-31||Spring Quarter||Oct. 1-31|
|Remember! Applications are due within the priority filing month.|
Not sure if you meet upper-division status? Set an appointment with a counselor in the Transfer Counseling Center and find out!
Make a point to meet the deadlines - particularly if you are in an impacted major, as impacted majors may have additional requirements. Set a counseling appointment in the Transfer Counseling Center to see if additional requirements pertain to your major.
If you have an approved Transfer Admission Guarantee (TAG) BE SURE TO SUBMIT A COMPLETED ADMISSION APPLICATION WITHIN THE PRIORITY FILING DATE OR YOUR TAG WILL BECOME VOID!!
