Associate Degrees for Transfer

Transfer Overview    

Allan Hancock College now offers another way for you to transfer to the California State University system. The simplified process allows students who complete an Associate in Arts Transfer Degree (AA-T) or Associate in Science Transfer Degree (AS-T) to receive priority admission into the CSU System.

Simply choose your major and complete 60 semester units of required general education coursework and major-specific lower division coursework. Students who have earned an AA-T or AS-T are admitted to a CSU at junior standing with the opportunity to complete a baccalaureate degree with 60 additional semester units.

An AA-T or AS-T degree guarantees admission to a California State University, but not necessarily a specific campus or major. So to stay competitive, make sure you keep your grades up and that you meet the admissions requirements for the CSU campus and major that interest you the most. It is also important that you meet with an Allan Hancock College academic counselor early in your decision process.

"Counseling helped me develop a Student Education Plan which organized my classes in a way to help me develop as a better student and make my course-load easier by taking courses that complemented each other. The semesters were designed for me to focus on my courses. Now I'm well prepared and disciplined to start my new chapter in life by attending CSU Northridge as a Political Science: Law and Society major."
