|Associate Degree for Transfer (AA-T/AS-T)|
The Associate Degree for Transfer are a new class of degrees - they are not the same as the traditional AA & AS. California Community College students that have earned a transfer associate (AA/AS-T) degree are guaranteed junior standing and priority admission consideration over all other transfer students when applying to a CSU baccalaureate (BA/BS) degree program that has been deemed similar to the student’s community college area of emphasis. Once admitted to a similar baccalaureate (BA/BS) degree program, the transfer associate degree student will only be required to complete 60 additional prescribed units to qualify for the similar baccalaureate (BA/BS) degree.
Transfer associate (AA/AS-T) degree applicants are guaranteed priority admission over all other transfer students when applying to a local or non impacted campus or priority admission consideration to an impacted campus when applying to a CSU baccalaureate (BA) degree program that has been deemed similar to the student’s community college area of emphasis.
NOTE: You are not guaranteed admission
to any one specific CSU campus - only admission to the CSU system!
In addition, the guarantee is only for a "similar major" which may or may not be the major you want so please check the CSU Similar Majors List!
At present, this law does not apply to the University of California (UC).
In order to earn an AA-T/AS-T, students must successfully complete:
There are no additional graduation requirements for AA-T or AS-T degrees.
To be eligible for the admission priority consideration at those CSU campuses with similar programs that received your application, 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.
For this verification to be accomplished, the California Community Colleges have established a priority schedule for transfer associate degree eligible students.
