What is an Associate Degree for Transfer?

Students with an AA-T or AS-T receive admission priority and are guaranteed admission with junior status to the CSU system. Students who intend to transfer are advised to refer to the catalog of the prospective transfer institution and consult a counselor. This degree may not be the best option for students planning to transfer to certain impacted CSU campuses or majors, if they are applying outside of the CSU system, or if they are not planning to transfer.
