What are the benefits of the AA-T or AS-T?

Benefits include:

  • Priority admission to the CSU system into a similar major as a junior as long as the you meet all of the eligibility requirements.
  • Once admitted, you will only be required to complete 60 additional units to qualify for the baccalaureate (BA or BS) degree.
  • A special GPA advantage when applying to CSU impacted campuses or majors.
  • Eligibility for Winter\Spring Admission for CSU campuses that require completion of the AA-T or AS-T.

What the degree does not do:

  • These degrees do not guarantee a student admission for a specified major or campus, but requires the CSU to grant a student priority admission to the local CSU campus and to a program or major that is similar to the AA-T or AS-T as determined by each specific CSU campus.  Please see the links below labeled CSU Campuses Similar Degree report for additional information.
