TMC (Transfer Model Curriculum) Degrees
: New degrees
for CSU Transfer Students
in Arts for Transfer (AA-T) or Associate
in Science for Transfer (AS-T). The Student Transfer Achievement Reform Act (Senate Bill 1440, now codified in California Education Code sections 66746-66749) guarantees admission to a California State University (CSU) campus for any community college student who completes an “associate degree for transfer”, a newly established variation of the associate degrees traditionally offered at a California community college. The Associate in Arts for Transfer (AA-T) or the Associate in Science for Transfer (AS-T) is intended for students who plan to complete a bachelor's degree in a similar major at a CSU campus. Students completing these degrees (AA-T or AS-T)
are guaranteed admission
to the CSU system, but not to a particular campus or major. In order
to earn one of these degrees, students must complete a minimum of 60 required semester units of CSU-transferable coursework with a minimum GPA of 2.0. Students transferring to a CSU campus that does accept the AA-T or AS-T will be required to complete no more than 60 units after transfer to earn a bachelor’s degree (
unless the major is a designated “high-unit” major). This degree may not be the best option for students intending to transfer to a particular CSU campus or to university or college that is not part of the CSU system. Students should consult with a counselor when planning to complete the degree for more information on university admission and transfer requirements.
The following is required for all AA-T or AS-T degrees:
1. Minimum of 60 CSU-transferable semester units.
2. Minimum grade point average (GPA) of at least 2.0 in all CSU-transferable coursework. While a minimum of 2.0 is required for admission, some majors may require a higher GPA. Please consult with a counselor for more information.
3. Completion of a minimum of 18 semester units in an “AA-T” or “AS-T” major as detailed in the Degrees for Transfer section of the catalog. All courses in the major
must be completed
with a grade of C or better or a “P” if the course is taken on a “pass-no pass” basis (title 5 § 55063).
4. Certified completion of the California State University General Education-Breadth pattern (CSU GE Breadth) (see page ____ for more information); OR the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) pattern (see page _____ for more information).
At the time of catalog publication, a student may earn an AA-T in Psychology, an AA-T in Communication Studies, and an AA-T in Sociology (requirements listed in the Degrees for Transfer section of the catalog). Additional majors are being developed. Please see a counselor for more information. For additional information visit the C-ID/TMC Web Page.
