ASSOCIATE DEGREE FOR TRANSFER
What does the Associate Degree for Transfer program do for me?
- Creates an Associate Degree for Transfer that guarantees your admission with junior standing to the California State University system
- Provides you with priority admission consideration to your local California State University campus and to a program or major that is similar to the major or area of emphasis you studied at your community college
- Reduces the need to take unnecessary courses, thereby shortening your time to degree completion and reducing your costs at the community college and California State University
- Even if you do not complete or have to delay finishing your bachelor’s degree, you will still have an associate degree and no one can take that from you. It can significantly increase your earning potential and provide you with the skills employers are looking for in this difficult economy.
