Associate in Science in Mathematics for Transfer degree is designed to meet common lower-division requirements for a major in mathematics at most California State University (CSU) campuses. Satisfactory completion of the CRC Associate in Science in Mathematics for Transfer (AS-T) degree provides a solid foundation and satisfies the standard prerequisities for upper division coursework for mathematics majors at most CSU and other four-year universities. However, it is highly recommended that students meet with a counselor since major and general education requirements vary for each college/university.
Note about Transfer
The Associate Degree for Transfer program is designed for students who plan to transfer to a campus of the California State University (CSU). Other than the required core, the courses you choose to complete this degree will depend to some extent on the selected CSU for transfer. In addition, some CSU-GE Breadth or IGETC requirements can also be completed using courses required for this associate degree for transfer major (known as “double-counting”). Meeting with a counselor to determine the most appropriate course choices will facilitate efficient completion of your transfer requirements. For students wishing to transfer to other universities (UC System, private, or out-of-state), the Associate Degree for Transfer may not provide adequate preparation for upper-division transfer admissions; it is critical that you meet with a CRC counselor to select and plan the courses for the major, as programs vary widely in terms of the required preparation.

* These courses can double-count for the major and for the appropriate GE area of the CSU GE Breadth and/or IGETC requirements, however there is a limitation on the number that actually can. For this degree, students may be able to double- count MATH 400 for both the major and transfer GE; see a CRC counselor for advice.
** Includes double-counting of five (5) major units for GE, freeing up units for other transfer electives as noted in the table.
Associate in Science for Transfer Degree
The Associate in Science in Mathematics for Transfer (AS-T) degree may be obtained by completion of 60 transferable, semester units with a minimum 2.0 GPA, including (a) the major or area of emphasis described in the Required Program, and (b) either the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) or the California State University General Education-Breadth Requirements.
This degree is designed to provide a foundation in mathematics and to meet common lower-division requirements for a major in mathematics or statistics at many four-year transfer institutions. It is highly recommended that students meet with a counselor because major and general education requirements vary for each college/university.
