ADT Verification

To ensure your  ADT is ready for verification, please be sure to read and complete the following steps by the stated deadlines:

  • Please use this link to access the graduation application and to review the form instructions. 
  • ADT Verification Timeline
    • For Spring 2022 CSU Applicants (application period August 1 - August 31, 2021): To ensure sufficient processing time for CSU E-Verification, it is highly recommended to apply for the ADT Degree by September 10, 2021.  Final application deadline is October 8, 2021. If you have already been awarded the ADT required for verification in a past semester, there is no need to submit a new graduation application.
    • For Fall 2022 CSU Applicants (application period October 1- November 30, 2021). To ensure sufficient processing time for CSU E-Verification, it is highly recommended to apply for the ADT Degree by February 11, 2022.  Final application deadline is March 11, 2022. If you have already been awarded the ADT required for verification in a past semester, there is no need to submit a new graduation application.
  •  ALL previously-attended college transcripts are required to be on file at Grossmont or Cuyamaca College before an Associate Degree application can be reviewed and verified. Please request any official outstanding transcripts that have not yet been sent – all transcripts should be received no later than March 1, 2022 to allow time for processing and a full review of the graduation application and eligibility status. While the college campuses are closed, due to COVID-19, electronic delivery of OFFICIAL transcripts is preferred, if available. (Graduation applications may be submitted prior to the receipt of all transcripts and will be held in a pending status until all required transcripts are received).
  • If you are enrolled at another college during the spring 2022 semester, aside from Grossmont College, an OFFICIAL work-in-progress transcript is REQUIRED to be sent to Cuyamaca College prior to the March 1, 2022 transcript deadline. At the completion of the semester, an OFFICIAL final transcript is also required before your ADT can be reviewed and posted to your transcript. Most colleges will allow you to order both transcripts at the same time, one with a ‘Send Now’ option and one with a “Hold for Final Grades” option. Please check with the specific college for information.
  • Cuyamaca College will begin the verification process on February 23, 2022 of the names and majors submitted to Cuyamaca College by the CSU. Our ability to verify your ADT will depend on the completion of the previous steps, outlined above. On the day your ADT is electronically verified, you will receive a confirmation email from your Cuyamaca College Graduation Evaluator that your name and major, indicated on your CSU application, has been verified to the CSU. If your graduation application is submitted on or after February 23, 2022, you will receive confirmation of your ADT, in a separate email, the same day in which your graduation evaluations are sent.
  • Note: Once your ADT has been verified, your CSU portal may still indicate that verification is pending until the verification period ends on March 15, or several business days later, to allow for processing by the CSU. Each CSU campus may begin reviewing verification data at different times, while others may wait until after the verification deadline of March 15 has passed. Please allow CSU campuses the necessary time to import the verification data for their specific campus. If you have additional questions about a pending verification status, after receiving the verification confirmation from your Cuyamaca College Graduation Evaluator, you may contact the specific CSU or the Cuyamaca College Transfer Center for assistance.
  • To satisfy the FINAL VERIFICATION requirement, request an official transcript to be sent at the end of the spring 2022 semester, to each CSU campus or campuses requiring verification of your ADT degree, selecting the “Hold for Degree” option. We recommend completing this order before June 1. Transcript Requests may be ordered here: https://www.cuyamaca.edu/student-support/transfer-center/transcript-requests.php
  • For students who may discover that a mistake was made on their CSU admission application, either with the major selected or the California Community College where the ADT would be earned, please contact the Cuyamaca College Transfer Center to complete an ADT paper verification as soon as possible, but no later than March 8, 2022, send an email to: cuyamaca.transfer@gcccd.edu
