Graduation Pledge

2-Year California Promise Program

The California Promise ​Program enables a specific number of campuses of the California State University, including Cal Poly Pomona, to establish programs for students who are pursuing an Associate Degree for Transfer (ADT) from any California Community College and plan to complete their bachelor's degrees in two years at a CSU campus. This legislatively-mandated program is limited to students who are California residents.

  • CA Resident
  • Enter fall term with a completed Associate Degree for Transfer (ADT), Associate in Arts for Transfer (AA-T), or Associate in Science for Transfer (AS-T) in a major that is deemed similar at CPP. You can find the list of similar majors and options here.

If you are eligible for the California Promise, you will receive an invitation to apply. This will be your only chance during your time at Cal Poly Pomona to apply.

You will receive a confirmation email in your CPP inbox when we receive your application. If you're accepted, you'll receive a second email admitting you into the program.

Please note that your acceptance is conditional until we confirm your ADT status. If your self-reported ADT is not verified by the Office of Admissions, you will not be eligible to continue in the program in the second year. We will send you more communication about this process.

If you're not eligible for the program or miss the application period, don't worry! You will still have access to your academic advisor, and you can still graduate within four years by planning for 30 semester units per year. Visit the Take 30 website to learn more about the benefits.
