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.
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 online and on the ground at the Ridgecrest campus. 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.
This degree requires 60 units and will likely take 4 semesters.
x $46 per unit
x ($200 + $42) per unit
= $2760 in tuition and fees
= $14,520 in tuition and fees
+ ~$3500* for books and supplies
= $6260 across four semesters or $1565 per semester
= $18,020 across four semesters or $4505 per semester

The Associate in Science Degree in Mathematics for Transfer (60 units total, 22 units in the major) prepares students for transfer to the CSU System to earn a baccalaureate in applied or theoretical mathematics, mathematics education, statistics, engineering, natural or physical science, or economics. Upon successful completion of the program students will be able to apply advanced mathematical concepts such as extending the concepts of derivatives, differentials, and integrals to include multiple independent variables, solving simple differential equations of the first and second order, and analyzing and modeling the behaviors of physical phenomena using calculus. Baccalaureate options for students include General Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, Mathematics Education, Statistics, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Computer Science, Engineering, Computer Information Systems, Management Information Systems, and Economics. To complete the degree, students must fulfill both of the following requirements:
Please note that our local Cerro Coso general education pattern MAY NOT be used to fulfill the requirements of this degree and that all required courses for the degree must be transferable to CSU.
Upon successful completion of the program, the student will be able to
Note: Some courses within the major may have a required prerequisite. If you feel you have equivalent knowledge and skills to those included in the prerequisite course through professional experience, licensure, or certification, you have the opportunity to submit a Prerequisite Challenge to be reviewed by the faculty chair. For the Prerequisite Challenge to be considered, you must submit documentation/verification to substantiate the basis for the challenge. Please consult a counselor for more information regarding Prerequisite Challenge.
