SB 1440 - Associate Degree for Transfer
The Student Transfer Achievement Reform Act (STAR) enables the California Community Colleges (CCC) and California State University (CSU) to collaborate on the creation of Associate in Arts (AA-T) and Associate in Science (AS-T) Degree transfer programs.  This new law requires community colleges to grant an Associate Degree for Transfer (ADT) to a student once a student has met specified general education and major requirements for the degree.  Upon completion of the associate degree, the student is eligible for transfer with junior standing into the California State University (CSU) system.

CSU Admission
A California Community College student who has earned an AA-T or AS-T and meet the CSU minimum eligibility requirements will benefit from the following:

  • Guaranteed admission to the CSU, but not necessarily to a particular campus or major;
  • May be given a GPA bump when applying to an impacted campus outside of the local area or an impacted major that is deemed similar.

Once admitted to a CSU and enrolled in a designated similar degree program, a California Community College student who has earned an AA-T or AS-T will benefit from the following:

  • Will have the opportunity to complete a bachelor's degree with as little as 60 semester units or 90 quarter units of coursework;
  • Will be prepared to start upper division coursework at the CSU;
  • Will not be required to repeat courses similar to those completed at CCC.

Applying for an AA-T or AS-T
When applying to CSU, students must complete the CSU admissions application between October 1 and November 30 for fall admission and between August 1 and August 30 for spring admission a year prior to transfer. Students must indicate on the CSU admission application the name of the AA-T or AS-T being awarded by the California Community College and the date the degree will be completed. Students must apply for the AA-T or AS-T at the community college campus by a specified deadline to be determined by the CSU Chancellor's Office.
