Associate Degrees for Transfer
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.

Cal Poly SLO, Aerospace Engineering
I excelled in math and science in school, so engineering was the right fit and I just had to figure out how to get it done. Throughout high school, I took courses at Allan Hancock College (AHC), and graduated as my high school valedictorian. I then attended AHC in search of a smooth transition to a university. I was able to take my lower division engineering courses and form a great relationship with my professors. While at AHC, I received multiple scholarships form the Allan Hancock Foundation, Santa Barbara Foundation, and MESA-NSF Scholarship. I then attended California Polytechnic University, San Luis Obispo, to pursue an aerospace engineering degree. After just one year at Cal Poly, I was accepted into one of the most prestigious internship programs that NASA offers, the Aeronautics Academy.
