Associate Degree for Transfer. A Degree with a guarantee.

The Associate in Science in Computer Science for Transfer (AS-T) Degree is intended to meet the lower-division requirements for Computer Science majors at a CSU campus that offers a Computer Science baccalaureate degree.

This degree is designed for students interested in an introduction to the field of Computer Science. Computer Science is the study of representational computation, data access methods, programming languages, algorithmic modeling, software design, testing and development. Students in the Computer Science program study and apply their knowledge of mathematics, physics and logic to solve a variety of problems using current technology. Coursework includes programming languages and concepts, systems analysis, mathematics, physics, computer hardware and data structures.

In addition to the courses listed in the curriculum tab, the following additional requirements must be met for completion of the Associate in Science in Computer Science for Transfer Degree:

  1. Completion of a minimum of 60 CSU-transferable semester units.
  2. Achievement of a minimum GPA of at least 2.0 in all CSU-transferable coursework (some majors may require a higher GPA; students should consult with a counselor for more information).
  3. Completion of the 24 semester units in the major with a grade of “C” or better or a “P” if the course is taken on a pass/no pass basis.
  4. Certified completion of the California State University General Education-Breadth (CSU GE) pattern; OR the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) pattern.

NOTE: Students are advised to check with the Counseling Department or Transfer Center for the courses accepted into the Physics major at the CSU where they seek transfer.
