Associate Degree for Transfer

Associate Degree for Transfer

The California State University system and the California Community College system have collaborated on the creation of the Associate of Arts for Transfer (AA-T) and the Associate of Science for Transfer (AS-T) degree programs, made possible by the passage of Senate Bill 1440. This special degree program is available for a select group of majors.

A California Community College student who has earned an AA-T or AS-T will be granted priority admission to the CSU into a similar baccalaureate (BA/BS) degree program with a guarantee of junior standing as long as the student meets all prescribed admission requirements. Once admitted, the student will only be required to complete 60 additional prescribed units to quality for the similar baccalaureate (BA/BS) degree.

For more information contact your Community College Transfer Center or the Associate Degree for Transfer web page for a current list of AA-T/AS-T Approved Degrees.
Similar Programs at CSU Stanislaus can be found here. Because this is a new program, the list of majors is growing as more get approved. To qualify for the guarantee at CSU Stanislaus, a student must be pursuing one of the majors shown in this document and the corresponding approved option (if applicable) that matches the AA-T or AS-T degree. To learn more about CSU Stanislaus majors and options, visit the Academic Programs web site.

Verification - California Community College AA-T/AS-T degree applicants must submit verification that they have or are finishing the remaining requirements for the AA-T/AS-T degree by April 1, 2014. Verification documentation can be a California community college AA-T/AS-T verification form, or a document prepared by a community college representative indicating degree status.
