Applying for a Raoul Teilhet Scholarship has never been easier with our online application portal. However, we want you to help spread the word! To that end, the CFT has produced two flyers to assist in promoting our program as well as those of the AFT and the AFL-CIO.

Transferring to a CSU Campus for Business in 2022?
Earning a Business Administration Associate Degree for Transfer (ADT)?  

Read ON to learn how the NEW 2.0 Business ADT can help you!

If you are planning to transfer, there is a new version of the ADT in Business available for the Fall 2021: ADT Business 2.0. The ADT Business 2.0 is listed on the Fall 2022 CSU Application, and for certain schools, like CSU San Marcos, may provide greater admission priority to a wider range of majors! 


1.0 vs. 2.0 – What’s the Deal?

Q: How can earning the 2.0 ADT benefit you for your CSU San Marcos Application?

Q: What are the differences in course requirements between the current [1.0] and the 2.0 ADT?

  • Other CSU’s: Use CalStateApply ADT to see how other CSU campuses accept the current [1.0] & 2.0 ADTs.

CISC 181

CISC 181 (CISC 181 is not required in the 2.0 ADT); however, most SDSU business majors require CISC 181; CSUSM does NOT require CISC 181, unless you list the 1.0 ADT on your CSUSM application.

Choose 1: Buse 115, Math 119, OR Math 121**

Choose 1: Math 121 or Math 150** - AND -


Choose 1: Buse 115 or Math 119**

**The current 1.0 ADT requires EITHER Calculus OR Statistics. However, most SDSU & CSUSM Business majors must complete both for transfer admission.

**The new 2.0 ADT requires BOTH Calculus AND Statistics, which many CSU’s require anyway. Students who will complete both statistics & calculus by the end of May 2022 are encouraged to earn the 2.0 ADT if applying to CSUSM AND ADD 2.0 ADT on their CalStateApply application! ^ 


NOTE: If using CSUGE, the 2.0 ADT requires the new Area F Ethnic Studies. If IGETC, no new GE requirement. #



* CSUSM Business tracks: Accounting, Business Analytics, Finance, Global Business, Management (specialties in Entrepreneurship, Human Resources, & Management in Organizations), Management Information Systems, Marketing, & Global Supply Chain Management


^ NOTE: CSUSM’s application deadline is extended to 12/15/2021! (SDSU’s deadline is 11/30/2021).


# NOTE: 2.0 ADTs using the CSUGE pattern must also add the new 2021-2022 Area F Ethnic Studies (Fili 100 or

Chic 110A or 110B). No such requirement is needed if following IGETC-CSU.


·         Work with a counselor at the college you plan to earn your degree for more information and to request to have the 2.0 ADT added to your ed plan, so that you may apply to graduate with the 2.0 ADT. 


The main questions to ask students are:

1.       Which CSU campuses are you applying to? (Hopefully, more than just SDSU).

2.       All CSUs will use the ADT Business 2.0 differently. Please see the CalStateApply ADT web site to see which CSU’s accept the 1.0 vs. the 2.0 Business ADT and for which emphases.

3.       If CSUSM, which emphasis will you apply to?

·         If Global Supply Chain Management, then 1.0 will work fine.

·         If ANY other business major, 2.0 is strongly encouraged, as students will have a higher degree of admission priority with the 2.0 ADT.

4.       Which GE pattern are you using with your Business ADT?

·         If CSUGE, student will have to use the new 2021-2022 CSUGE, which includes the new Area F-Ethnic Studies. So far, only Fili 100, Chic 110A and 110B satisfy this area. OR, students can switch to the IGETC-CSU pattern.

·         If IGETC-CSU, no new GE requirement – No need to take Area F.

·         Students can still switch their GE pattern.
