AS in Chemistry for Transfer
Associate Degree for Transfer. A Degree with a guarantee.

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

This degree provides for the completion of general lower-division preparation associated with the requirements for a bachelor’s degree in chemistry, biochemistry, chemical engineering, and other fields.   It provides a broad, comprehensive overview of the main areas of chemistry and its’ applications.  The ability to critically think and use appropriate tools to solve chemical questions will be emphasized.

In addition to the courses listed below, the following additional requirements must be met for completion of the AS-T Degree in Chemistry:

  1. Completion 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 36 semester units in the major with a grade of “C” or better.
  4. Certified completion of the California State University General Education-Breadth (CSUGE) pattern; OR the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) STEM pattern.

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