CSU Degrees for Transfer

The Associate Degree for Transfer (AA-T or AS-T) is a special, new degree offered at California Community Colleges. Students who earn an AA-T or AS-T degree and meet the CSU minimum eligibility requirements are guaranteed admission to a CSU, but not necessarily to a particular campus or major. With the special degree, you may be given a GPA bump when applying to an impacted campus outside your local area or an impacted major that is deemed similar.
