CSU Fee waivers (EOP&S)

CSU fee Waiver Checklist

The Cal State Apply online application allows EOPS students to identify their EOPS status and the community college at which they are enrolled (see attached screenshot of on-line application). By answering affirmative to the EOPS question, Cal State Apply will show applicants they have been "granted" an application fee waiver at up to four (4) CSU campuses to which they are applying at the time of application submission once they have completed their application. The CSU admission application fee is $70 per application to each campus.

If an EOPS student does not automatically receive the fee waiver, they should immediately e-mail the CSU Chancellor's Office Cal State Apply at Calstateapply@calstate.eduCSU is no longer using the paper admission application fee waiver form for students who do not automatically receive the fee waiver.

For EOPS students who have reached their limit of four CSU admissions application fee waivers, EOPS is permitted to pay for additional fee waivers, if funds are available. EOPS may: a) pay the admission application fees directly to the university on behalf of the student as an object code 7000B expense; b) reimburse the student for the admission application fees as an object code 7000B expense; or c) award a grant, based on unmet financial need, to the student to pay for the admission application fees as an object code 7000C expense. Check with your respective EOPS program. 

All applicants who are applying to EOP are encouraged to complete and submit the EOP and recommendation portion at the same time as the application for admission. The application indicates the deadline for the EOP recommenders to complete the recommendation. Applicants can check the EOP Admission by Term page

UC Fee Waivers (EOP&S) 

UC Fee Waivers for EOPS Transfer Student form

 The fee waiver process for EOPS students differs slightly between UC and CSU, but regardless of the process, California Education Code section 69656 ensures that all EOPS students seeking to transfer to UC and CSU will be provided admissions application fee waivers.

The UC application submission period for Fall 2021 enrollment is November 1 – 30, 2020. Through the UC online application process, all students who meet the income eligibility guidelines are automatically granted fee waivers at up to four (4) UC campuses to which they are applying. The UC admission application fee is $70 per application to each campus.

Nearly all EOPS students will receive the admission application fee waivers automatically. However, any EOPS student who does not automatically receive the fee waiver should contact the UC Application Center helpline at

UC will accommodate these students if they submit the "Authorization for Waiver of 2021-22 Admission Application Fees" form (see attached PDF) that UC is distributing exclusively to community college EOPS offices. The fee waiver form should be completed only by students who do not receive the automatic fee waiver through the online UC application process.

For EOPS students who have reached their limit of four UC admissions application fee waivers, EOPS is permitted to pay for additional fee waivers, if funds are available. EOPS may: a) pay the admission application fees directly to the university on behalf of the student as an object code 7000B expense; b) reimburse the student for the admission application fees as an object code 7000B expense; or c) award a grant, based on unmet financial need, to the student to pay for the admission application fees as an object code 7000C expense.

The UC Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) provides support services to students who are from low income, educationally disadvantaged backgrounds and are first-generation college students. EOP is open only to California residents and to American Indians from any state. To be considered for EOP, students should indicate their interest when completing the UC online admissions application

students will be facing COVID-related barriers in paying for application costs, and this information will be helpful in helping them navigate this process. Forwarding in the hopes that it will be helpful to you as well!

CSU Fee Waivers (Affected by Covid-19)

Cal apply is not able to incorporate 2020 income changes in Cal State Apply to accommodate fee waivers related to COVID.  If financial circumstances have changed for 2020, applicants will need to contact the CSU campus directly to request a fee waiver. 
Campuses may use a Fee Waiver Appeal form or some other method to receive requests.  If approved, a coupon code that covers the cost of the application is provided by the campus.
Applicants should complete (not submit) the application in full as soon as possible to confirm they are not eligible for the fee waiver based on 2019 income information and then contact the campus(es) to request a fee waiver appeal. 
Some campuses have students work with the financial aid office for this but the process at each campus may vary.  Have the applicant contact the campus admission office via the general email found here: Fee Waiver (affected by Covid-19)

If they do not qualify for a fee waiver based on 2019 income, the student should select the 'pay by mail' option, submit the application, and then email the UC Application Center

ucinfo@applyucsupport.netasking for a fee waiver based on 2020 income. These requests will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis, but the student must submit the application first before requesting the fee waiver (there is no fee to waive if the student hasn't actually submitted the application yet).

Transferable Courses at EVC

SJCC courses 100s 

EVC courses 200s

Transferability list of Courses at Evergreen Valley College that been articulated with CSU and UC systems can be found at 

Some courses are articulated for general education, major preparation and/or elective credit. Non-Transferrable and Noncredit courses are numbered 500-599

A transferable course that you took for P/NP (or CR/NC) will not be calculated into the GPA.

If you have attended other colleges, meet with a EVC Counselor to determine which classes transfer to a four-year university and should be included in the GPA calculation.

AP and IB credit is not included in the calculation of the GPA.

GPA Calculator

Determine which system you are calculating your GPA for – CSU or UC.

Your overall academic performance, as measured by your grade point average (GPA), is another factor in being admitted to a university and earning your degree. There are minimum GPAs set for transfer students that vary slightly by system or institution. 

The EVC transcript does not calculate your transferable GPA. Therefore, it is your responsibility to review your transcript for transferable courses and determine your GPA for transfer to a four-year university. You can use the tool below to calculate your transferable GPA or follow the steps below with your own calculator.

Use a highlighter to mark each class that you have taken that transfers, highlight the course, units attempted and grade points.

Add up the number of units attempted.

Add up the number of grade points you earned. Each letter grade has a point value (A=4, B=3, C=2, D=1 and F=0). The grade points are determined by multiplying the point value times the units. English 1A is 4 units and you earn a B (3 points) 4x3 = 12 grade points.

Divide the number of units into the number of grade points for your GPA Calculator

CSU Redirection 

Student will have 35 days to respond to redirection opportunity to the campus they selected on Cal State, If student does not respond, they will be redirected to the next available CSU.  Redirection is based on campuses available. Student will receive an email. Once student select interest in redirection, application is moved to redirection at not additional fee. Will get a notice immediately saying application was redirected. Student is deemed CSU Eligible, and campus redirected will do a quick evaluation. They can only redirect to either their first or second choice campus. Only for students who applied and were not admitted to a campus they applied to were fully impacted and didn’t get a spot, they are eligible for redirection through ADT.

For more information on EVC's Associate Degrees for Transfer, please visit the College Catalogpage. An ADT is a transfer degree offered at California Community Colleges which offers a student who also meets the CSU minimum eligibility requirements, guaranteed admission to a CSU, but not necessarily to a particular campus or major. Once admitted and enrolled, a student can complete his or her bachelor's degree with a minimum of 60 units. It is important to meet with a counselor to find out if this degree is appropriate for you and to make sure that you are following the right pathway.

How P/NP Affects Current Transfers During Covid-19?

Right now there a few factors to consider:

Before changing from a letter grade to Pass/No Pass, it may be in your best interest to consult with a Counselor or directly with your transfer school(s). You may want to proceed with caution if you are considering graduate school, as letter grades may be required for that admission process or recommended in staying competitive. As a precaution it may be better to wait to make that decision until you are sure the grade you are receiving is going to negatively impact your record.

CSU Transfers- CSUs are permitting Pass/No Pass grades taken in spring/summer 2020 to be used toward "golden four" coursework, general education classes, and major prep classes. This has been confirmed by all 23 campuses. However, the cap on the number of P/NP units a student can use varies per campus. The CSU has not put out a statement on whether any P/NP unit caps will be lifted. To be safe, please contact the CSUs on your list to see how many P/NP units they will allow.

UC Transfers- UCs have temporarily lifted the cap on the number of Pass/No Pass units from spring/summer 2020 that a student can use toward the 60 minimum UC units to reach junior-level standing as well toward the IGETC general education pattern. If you are following the 7-course pattern instead of IGETC, UC-E (Written Composition) and UC-M (Mathematics) allow "Pass" for courses taken in spring/summer 2020. However, if an IGETC course, UC-M, or UC-E also counts as a major requirement, proceed with caution. The UCs do not have a system-wide policy on Pass/No Pass grades for major classes. While UC Riverside and UC Irvine have both announced that "Pass" will be accepted in all major prep courses taken in spring 2020, other UC campuses have not made this announcement. Students considering a change in their major prep courses from a letter grade to Pass/No Pass should still contact any other UC programs on their list to determine what they will allow.

While UC Irvine and UC Riverside have announced that "Pass" from spring 2020 will be accepted in major prep for admission purposes, one admitted, the program could later require a letter grade to graduate with the degree. Otherwise, you may need to retake the class for a letter grade. Before you make this change, it is highly recommended that you consult with the transfer institution.

Fall 2020 admits only at this time: UC Berkeley, UC San Diego, and UC Santa Barbara have agreed to accept Pass grades in major preparation completed in spring 2020.

All 2020 admits and Fall 2021 applicants: UC Davis has agreed to accept Pass grades in major preparation completed in spring 2020

EVC permits Pass/No Pass grades for your major classes; HOWEVER, if you plan to use the class for a transfer major as well (and are considering the UCs), then taking the class for a letter grade will be the safer option.

CA Independent Universities 

American Independent California Colleges & Universities (AICCU)

Founded in 1955, the Association of Independent California Colleges and Universities (AICCU) is comprised of 85 independent, nonprofit colleges and universities in California. Together, these institutions make up the Independent California Colleges and Universities sector (ICCU). Recommend you to review their Transfer Guide

CA Independents that Accept Associate Degree for Transfer

The ADT Commitment is the Independent California College and University sector's adaptation of the ADT pathway. While similar to the CSU ADT, there are also some differences due to the independent nature of the state's nonprofit institutions:

Unlike CSU, AICCU institutions are not part of a system and each campus has its own admission and graduation requirements.

If an ADT transfer student meets all the requirements of admission to a participating institution, admission is guaranteed to that college as opposed to a system.

The ADT Commitment is:

Guaranteed admission for the ADT students meeting admission requirements;

Guarantees a minimum of 60 semester/90 quarter units will transfer; Guarantees the student starts with junior standing.

Out-of-State Universities help menu 

Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) 

Transfer Program Transfer Guarantee Agreements will facilitate a smooth transition for students from all of the California Community Colleges to partnered HBCUs. These agreements will simplify the transfer process and reduce students' need to take unnecessary courses, thereby shortening the time to degree completion with a cost saving

Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) have an excellent academic track record. While only about 17 percent of black undergraduate students attend an HBCU, more than 28 percent of African-Americans who receive a bachelor's degree obtain them from an HBCU. These colleges and universities are also leading institutions in awarding degrees to African-American students in the life sciences, physical sciences, mathematics and engineering programs.

The Transfer Credit Challenge (to out-of-state)

Transfer to an Out-of-State or Independent The following are the essential elements that you and your counselor will take into account in exploring baccalaureate programs in other states in the US. The same principles apply to gathering information about California independent colleges and universities with which EVC has limited Articulation Agreements

Expanding Your Search: Out Of State &Private Schools

CollegeNavigator Is a great Dept. of Ed funded site where you can explore all school choices across the US including out- of-state , private and public options. If you are relocating to another state, this is a great tool to find schools that offer your major. This is also great at locating private schools in California.


Transfer to an Out-of-State or Independent University

The following are the essential elements that you and your counselor will take into account in exploring baccalaureate programs in other states in the U.S.

The same principles apply to gathering information about California independent colleges and universities with which EVC has limited Articulation Agreements

The Transfer Credit Challenge Perhaps the most intimidating aspect of transfer to out-of-state and many independent schools is the absence of the articulation agreements. These agreements, which exist between California's community colleges and public universities, provide assurance that transfer credit will be granted for the classes you are taking at EVC. With a few exceptions, no one at EVC can tell you with absolute certainty how an out-of-state or independent institution will treat your community college coursework. Aside from actually applying, the only way to know is to ask for an informal evaluation from the target university.

Step 1: Gather Information about the School

It is important that you gather some basic information about the transfer requirements for your target out-of-state or independent school before you begin inquiring about specific course credit. You will need to consult the school's website to find out:

• The minimum number of units you need to apply as a transfer student

• Any other transfer selection criteria, such as GPA minimums

• Lower-division General Education requirements

• Lower-division prerequisites necessary to enter your major

• Application procedures and deadlines 

Some tips:

• Unit and GPA requirements are usually a part of information for transfer students in an "Admissions" section.

• General Education requirements are among the graduation requirements for a degree from the university; and they may be called by other terms, such as Liberal Studies, Essential Skills, or Foundations.

• Lower division major prerequisites will be on the pages that describe each major.

• For both GE and major preparation, you might need to look up the institution's course numbering, in order to separate lower-division from upper-division.

You are welcome to utilize the computer lab in the Transfer Center where staff is available to assist you if you need help. Print out or bookmark pages of everything and take it to an appointment (not a drop-in session) with your EVC counselor. 

Step 2: Write a Proposed Educational Plan

Your EVC  counselor will compare the information that you have gathered to the courses offered at EVC and make an educated guess about which EVC courses will meet the requirements for transfer to your target school. Based on that guess, you and your counselor will write a tentative educational plan.  In some cases your EVC Counselor requires to collaboration with our EVC Articulation Counselor. It may take more than one appointment session to accomplish this step.

Step 3: Ask for a Review of Your Plan

At this point it is necessary to identify an admissions advisor at your target university (i.e. schedule an appointment with the Admission Representative from chosen Transfer University).

Look on the admissions website for an advisor who specifically works with students in California or your major. Your goal is to locate an advisor who will review your plan and provide feedback on whether it will meet the requirements to be admitted at the level you are seeking. You will offer to email the plan to them and ask the advisor to email their approval or suggestions for changes. You may also have to make separate contact with an advisor in the department of your major to find out about major preparation.

One of the things you will want to let the university advisor know about is the availability of all EVC's complete course outlines available online. This will greatly facilitate the advisor's ability to evaluate the EVC courses you propose to transfer. Your EVC counselor can show you how to access those outlines, so that you can pass instructions on to the university advisor.

Step 4: Confirm and Carry Out Your Plan

After you receive the university advisor's evaluation of your plan, meet again with your EVC counselor to review the feedback and make any necessary adjustments. Continue to meet regularly with your counselor, especially at any point that you want to take different courses or make any other changes that are not in the approved plan. Of course, follow all application instructions and meet deadlines set by the university
