Chemistry AS-T Degree

The Associate in Science in Chemistry for Transfer, also called the Chemistry AS-T Degree, is designed to prepare students for a seamless transfer with junior status to a CSU campus in a program or major in Chemistry for completion of a baccalaureate degree. Upon successful completion of courses leading to the Chemistry AS-T Degree the student will be able to know and understand Chemistry concepts, skills and applications to attain upper division status in Chemistry at any CSU institutions. 

This degree requires students to meet both of the following requirements: 

  1. Completion of 60 semester units that are eligible for transfer to the California State University, including both of the following: 
    • The Intersegmental GE Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) or the California State University GE-Breadth Requirements (CSU GE-B). 
    • A minimum of 18 semester units in a major or area of emphasis. All courses in the major or area of emphasis must be completed with a grade of "C" or better. 
  2. Obtainment of a minimum grade point average of 2.0. 

The Chemistry AS-T degree requires students to complete 60 CSU transferable units including completion of IGETC for STEM and 36 units in the major with a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or better. Units for the major may be double counted for IGETC for STEM only (not CSU GE). The IGETC for STEM requires a student to complete their general education pattern by taking an additional 6 units after transfer. There are no additional graduation requirements. Students are advised to consult with a counselor to verify transfer requirements.
