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.

When I joined MESA I found an atmosphere of very intelligent students, in which I have made friendships that are strengthened by our commitment to success. I am 31 years old and work full-time in order to support my growing family. Time management is vital to my success, and it has taken a while to find the right "recipe" of balance between school, work and family. MESA has given me important resources in the form of tutoring, access to potential internships, and help with the cost of books.
