# Mathematics AS-T

## What can I do with this?

We are now offering associate degrees for transfer to the CSU. This provides a clear pathway to a CSU major and baccalaureate degree. This AS-T degree guarantees admission with junior standing somewhere in the CSU system and gives priority admission consideration to your local CSU campus or to a program that is deemed similar to your community college major. This priority does not guarantee admission to specific majors or campuses. More information on the Degree with a Guarantee Program.

### The Mathematics Degree for Transfer

- Guarantees acceptance to the CSU system to earn a baccalaureate in
- applied or theoretical mathematics
