American River College

Associate Degree for Transfer

American River College offers Associate Degrees for Transfer to the CSU. These include Associate in Arts (AA-T) or Associate in Science (AS-T) degrees. These degrees are designed to provide a clear pathway to a CSU major and baccalaureate degree. ARC students who are awarded an AA-T or AS-T degree are guaranteed admission with junior standing somewhere in the CSU system and given priority admission consideration to their local CSU campus or to a program that is deemed similar to their community college major. This priority does not guarantee admission to specific majors or campuses.

Students who have been awarded an AA-T or AS-T are able to complete their remaining requirements for the 120-unit baccalaureate degree with 60 semester or 90 quarter units.

Current and prospective community college students are encouraged to meet with an ARC counselor to review their options for transfer and to develop an educational plan that best meets their goals and needs.
