General Education Requirement
General Education Patterns: The associate degree embodies the completion of a well-defined pattern of learning experiences that are designed to develop certain capabilities. Title 5 describes the completion of general education as a learning experience that demonstrates:
“The ability to think and to communicate clearly and effectively both orally and in writing; to use mathematics; to understand the modes of inquiry of the major disciplines; to be aware of other cultures and times; to achieve insights gained through experience in thinking about ethical problems; and to develop the capacity for self-understanding.”

Guarantee Transfer to CSU
Earning an Associate Degree for Transfer (ADT) makes it easy to transfer from a California Community College (CCC) into the California State University (CSU) system. The new joint transfer program from the CCC and the CSU makes it easier for students to transfer between the two school systems.
For the first time in California history, community college students who complete an ADT will be guaranteed admission to the California State University (CSU) system. The guarantee itself means that students who earn an ADT and meet the CSU minimum eligibility requirements are guaranteed admission to a CSU.
You won’t be able to transfer to any with any degree CSU as there are some limits. Please consult with your counselor to find out more information.
With the ADT, 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. Transfer students enter the CSU system with junior standing.
If you are admitted to a program deemed similar to your ADT, you will only need to complete 60 additional semester units (or 90 quarter units) to earn a bachelor’s degree. You will not be required to repeat courses that are similar to the ones you took at the CCC as part of your associate degree.
If you are working on an ADT with the goal of applying to CSU as well as UC, there’s a lot of overlap in coursework. The three core courses for the UC Transfer Pathway and the ADT are the same.
Additional courses required for CSU may be eligible for UC credit at some campuses. Check ASSIST for more details.
