New transfer degree and pathway to the CSU 

A new transfer pathway between the California Community Colleges and the California State University (CSU) is in effect. This new pathway grants students an associate degree for transfer in their field of study. It also streamlines the number of college credits required to obtain a bachelor’s degree from the CSU. Upon completion of the transfer associate degree, a student is guaranteed an opportunity to transfer to CSU with junior standing.

Students holding an associate degree for transfer will be given priority consideration when applying to a particular program that is similar to the student’s community college area of emphasis. 

The new Associate of Arts Degree for Transfer program launched in the fall of 2011 and will continue to roll out.  The two systems have worked together to approve the framework for associate degrees for transfer open to community college students wanting to participate in the program.
