Geology for Transfer
Associate Degree for Transfer. A Degree with a guarantee.

The Associate in Science in Geology for Transfer (AS-T) Degree is intended to meet the lower division requirements for Geology majors (or similar majors) at a CSU campus that offers a Geology baccalaureate degree. It will prepare students who are intending to transfer to any CSU with an introductory background in geology and the history of our earth, as well as the mathematical tools and qualitative and quantitative thinking skills necessary to understand our beautiful planet.

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

  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 26 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 Geology program at the CSU where they seek transfer.
