    Hello there!

    Major: Math (Statistics)
    GPA: 3.9
    AA-T/AS-T: completed
    Pre-Reqs: I'm missing a programming class.
    Golden 4: Completed but english I is B.
    Local: No

    I also applied to CSULB, CSUN, CPP, UCLA, and Berkeley.
    I am really hoping I get into Fullerton. It is my first choice because I'm kinda scared of going to UC because of the cost. CSUN and CPP requires physics and I haven't seen physics before.

    Hello Everyone! Thank you @jess790 for creating this thread :smile:

    Major: Business
    GPA: 3.65
    Units: 108 (+8 units enrolled this Spring)
    AS-T: Business (completed)
    AA-T: Economics (completed)
    CSU/UC Certification: Yes, CSU IGETC and UC IGETC
    Pre-Reqs: No, taking last pre-req this Spring
    Golden 4: A, B, A, A
    Local: Yes, live in Brea and attended Fullerton College
    Applied: CSUF, CPP, UCI, UCR, and Penn State

    I was accepted to CSUF for Fall 2017, but had to withdraw before starting due to finances. I did not qualify for any financial aid, nor did I earn any scholarships. Also, I did not have my ADT completed at the time, nor did my BUS 245 Business Law course fulfill the pre-req. I am taking the BUS 240 Legal Enviornment of Business pre-req course this Spring. Since Fall 2017, I have earned the 2 ADTs plus 5 other Associate degrees (Bus Admin, Econ, IDS: Sci/Math, Soc Sci, and Soc Behav). Additionally, I will earn 2 more degrees at then end of Spring (Mkt Mgmt and IDS: Art). I have saved almost $20K for college tuition; plus, I am agressively applying for scholarships.

    CSUF is still my first choice, but I have applied elsewhere just for the hell of it. Admittedly, UCI would be great, but it's further from work and home. Penn State is their Online business degree that is supposed to be equivalent to their on-campus program, as well as being as close to an Ivy-league education less the cost. We'll see about that. In any case, I'm spinning my wheels at community college and need to move on to a 4-year university.

    Best of luck to everyone!

    Just received an email today from CSUF asking for a hand-delivered or mailed verification of my completed AD-T noted on my official transcripts. I guess the admissions process is moving along. However, my portal still states that no decision has been made regarding admissions.

    At least this is something.

    Major: Business Administration
    GPA: 2.88
    AA-T/AS-T: Yes, will be completed end of spring
    Pre-Reqs: Yes, finishing physics and managerial accounting this spring
    Golden 4: A, A, A, A
    Local: No, Taken classes at SBCC and VC
    Applied: CSUCI, CSUN, CSULA, CSUDH, CSULB, CSUF
    Accepted: CSUCI, CSUDH

    I'm worried about not getting into Fullerton because of my GPA. The reason my GPA is so low is that I took 2 semsters at SBCC 5 years ago and was not really dedicated so I received 3 F's and 3 Withdrawals during that time. My current GPA at VC is 3.42. I just recently found out about academic renewal through forums like this. I submitted my academic renewal petition form to SBCC which would make my GPA 3.42 but they are saying it takes 4-6 weeks to process it and the Cal state apply update period will be closed by then. Any helpful advice about this? Extremely gutted that I didn't know about this sooner.

    Hand delivered my official Fullerton College transcript with AD-T verification yesterday. The email said to hand deliver it to LH-114; however, there is some departmental shuffling happening on campus and I was told that the Transfer Dept was temporarily located in LH-111. I delivered it there. They asked me to write my CWID on the official transcript envelope. I also sent an email to [email protected] informing them of my hand delivery, date, and time. I received an autoreply thanking me for my submittal and that it may take days to weeks before it is reviewed. The email also included this link to document processing times: http://admissions.fullerton.edu/apps/processingtimes.aspx

    No update on my portal yet. Looking at last year's thread, it looks as though some students were receiving early admission notices at the end of January (https://talk.collegeconfidential.com/discussion/comment/21960724/#Comment_21960724). Hopefully some of us will start receiving admission notices soon!

    Where does it have the ADT verification in transcripts?
    Just received an email today from CSUF asking for a hand-delivered or mailed verification of my completed AD-T noted on my official transcripts. I guess the admissions process is moving along. However, my portal still states that no decision has been made regarding admissions.

    The email from CSUF specifically stated, "You indicated on your Fall 2020 admission application that you were either earning or have completed an Associate Degree for Transfer (AA-T or AS-T) from your community college. We need verification of this information from your community college by no later than March 23, 2020." Below in the email, it also stated, "If you have already earned your degree we need an official transcript with the statement of degree posted mailed to Admissions or hand carried to LH-114."

    Since I have already completed and was awarded my AD-T degree last year, the clerk at the Fullerton College admissions office confirmed my awards were posted on my transcript before sealing it in the envelope for delivery:

    Award: Associate in Science Transfer 25-MAY-2019
    Major: Business Administration AS-T

    This statement, as well as a list of my other degrees awarded including CSU/UC certifications, were on the first page of my official transcripts above my list of courses taken.

    I hope this helped answer your question.

    About the ADT verification, I actually called admissions and records and they told me that it was fine to email the unofficial transcript, and to make sure I also send an email to "[email protected]" saying this :

    My name is ______, I recently applied to CSUF for fall 2020. This morning I received and email saying that the university needs verification, once my transfer degree is awarded. I completed My AA-T on December 2019 and Long Beach City College gave me the diploma a few days ago.

    My question is, even though I have not been accepted yet, Do I still need to send the updated official transcript, with my degree posted? or do I have to wait until I received an acceptance letter? Thank you for your time, hope to hear from you soon.

    Best regards

    And they reply :
    You can email us the unofficial transcript showing the degree awarded.



    So I guess you dont have to go to fullerton, you can simply email the transcript.
    Hope this helps . :smile:

    Hi @camilagv, that is excellent information. I wish I would have called versus going in person to Fullerton College to get my official transcripts, then hand delivering it to CSUF. I have an electronic unofficial transcript showing my degree awards from last year. I included this in the CalStateApply attached documents. I wish their email would've stated you could send unofficial transcripts electronically if you've already completed the ADT. Thanks again for the info. Good to know for everyone else, going forward.
