Transferring to a California State University campus just got easier.

Introducing the Associate in Arts – Transfer (AA-T) and Associate in Science – Transfer (AS-T) degrees.

These new degree programs offered by Antelope Valley College will:

  • Provide a clear pathway for AVC graduates to transfer to a California State University (CSU) campus.
  • Grant AVC students priority admission to a CSU and to a program or major similar to their community college major or area of emphasis. (Admission to a particular campus is not guaranteed).
  • Provide AVC graduates with junior standing at a CSU.
  • Not require AVC transfer students to complete more than 60 units to receive a bachelor’s degree (except in specially designated high-unit majors.)

What prompted the new degrees?

The goal of the transfer degrees is to save college students time and money by providing a clear pathway to achieve a bachelor’s degree.

Community college and CSU officials have worked to create at AVC the Associate in Arts in Communication Studies for Transfer and Associate in Science in Mathematics for Transfer. More degree programs in the most popular majors are planned.

AVC students can continue to earn degrees in other areas and transfer to CSU. However, these new degree programs are meant to simplify the process for community college transfer students.

What are the requirements for the AA-T and AS-T degrees?

The courses required for each of the AA-T and AS-T degrees are outlined in AVC’s catalog or on the link below.

AVC students must complete a minimum of 60 required semester units of CSU-transferable coursework with a minimum grade point average of 2.0 to earn one of the degrees.

Students should consult with an academic counselor when planning to complete the degree for more information on university admission and transfer requirements. This degree may not be the best option for students intending to transfer to a particular CSU campus or to a university or college that is not part of the CSU system.
