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.

Graduating high school with honors and realizing I did not have the monetary means to go off to a university like I had always dreamed about felt like a setback. Being at a community college, for my first semester, felt like a detriment to my education. Despite this I began to reach out to other students and was referred by a student to a program called MESA. MESA has shaped my educational career. MESA has provided me with opportunities I would have otherwise missed on my own, an opportunity to work with other like-minded majors who have since become like family. With this kind of strong foundation I have been able to excel in my science, mathematics, and engineering courses.
