Associate Degrees for Transfer

California Community Colleges offer associate degrees for transfer to the CSU. These may include Associate in Arts (AA-T) or Associate in Science (AS-T) degrees. These degrees provide a clear pathway to a CSU major and baccalaureate degree. California Community College students who are awarded an AA-T or AS-T degree are guaranteed admission with junior standing somewhere in the CSU system and given priority admission consideration to their local CSU campus or to a program that is deemed similar to their community college major. This priority does not guarantee admission to specific majors or campuses.

Students who have been awarded an AA-T or AS-T are able to complete their remaining requirements for the 120-unit baccalaureate degree within 60 semester or 90 quarter units. To view the most current list of Moreno Valley College Associate Degrees for Transfer and to find out which CSU campuses accept each degree, please visit the Associate Degree for Transfer page.

Students are encouraged to meet with a Moreno Valley College counselor to review their options for transfer and to develop an educational plan that best meets their goals and needs.

  • State-approved certificates consist of completed coursework totaling 16 units or more (sometimes 8 units or more) in a specific occupational certificate pattern. State-approved certificates may lead to employment competency and may lead to an associate degree.

Locally-approved certificates may lead to employment competency, but do not necessarily lead to an associate degree.
