DEGREE: AS-T Business Administration for Transfer
Code #1976

The Associate in Science in Business Administration for Transfer degree provides students with a major that fulfills the general requirements of the California State University for transfer to baccalaureate degree programs in business administration. Students with this degree will receive priority admission with junior status to the California State University system. The Associate in Science in Business Administration for Transfer is comprised of lower division coursework typically required by CSU institutions. Students must complete the following Associate Degree for Transfer requirements (Pursuant to SB1440, §66746):

  • 60 semester or 90 quarter CSU-transferable units
  • the California State University-General Education-Breadth pattern (CSU GE-Breadth); OR the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) pattern
  • a minimum of 18 semester or 27 quarter units in the major or area of emphasis as determined by the community college district
  • obtain a minimum grade point average (GPA) of 2.0
  • earn a grade of C or better in all courses required for the major or area of emphasis

Upon successful completion of the Associate in Science in Nutrition and Dietetics for Transfer degree requirements, students will be guaranteed admission to the CSU system with junior status and will not have to repeat lower division coursework.

Each California State University may have slightly different requirements for transfer so it is critical for students to work with their counselors to develop individual academic plans.

Note to Transfer Students:
The Business Administration A.S.-T degree 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. 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.

*Major courses which also fulfill a transfer General Education (GE) requirement (“double-counting”). Please note that there are limitations on double-counting — consult a Counselor when planning your courses to maximize the number of courses that fulfill both the requirements for the major and GE.

¹Students may also select one of the following courses if not already used: MATH 341, MATH 343, MATH 344 or STAT 300.
