We are now offering associate degrees for transfer to the CSU. This provides a clear pathway to a CSU major and baccalaureate degree. This AA-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.
Current and prospective community college students are encouraged to meet with a counselor to review their options for transfer and to develop an educational plan that best meets their goals and needs.
All classes needed for this degree are available on the ground at the Ridgecrest campus and the Eastern Sierra Bishop and Mammoth Lakes campuses. Additionally, some of the general education courses needed to complete this degree are available at all our locations. See Counseling for specific help with enrolling and completing this degree.
