Transfer Course Articulation
Take course credit with you
ASSIST is the official online student-transfer information system that shows how course credits earned at one public California college or university can be applied when transferred to another.
Students can review major requirements from any California Community College to any UC or CSU, learn about or search for majors, or review programs of study at California universities.
Associate Degrees for Transfer
California Community Colleges offer associate degrees for transfer to the Calfornia State University (CSU) system, including 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 by allowing students to complete their lower division requirements.
Students awarded an AA-T or AS-T are able to complete their remaining requirements for a 120-unit baccalaureate degree within 60 semester or 90 quarter units. This equals credit for two years of a typical four-year degree.
California Community College students awarded an AA-T or AS-T degree are guaranteed admission with junior standing somewhere in the CSU system and given priority admission consideration (usually through a slight GPA bump) to their local CSU campus or to a program that is deemed similar to their community college major.
Students can also take ADT credit to select private, nonprofit colleges through the the Independent California College and University sector’s adaptation of the ADT pathway. Some differences in acceptance and transfer coursework may occur due to the independent nature of the state's nonprofit institutions. Find more information including a list of participating institutions on the AICCU Transfer Website.
- Not all CSU campuses accept all of the AA-T/AS-T degrees.
- Admission priority does not guarantee admission to a specific major or campus. A transfer agreement must be in place and acceptance is typically regional.
- To find out which CSU campuses accept each degree, you should meet with a Moreno Valley College counselor.
If we do not offer an AA-T/AS-T degree for your major you can still transfer to a CSU. While the AA-T/AS-T degree is designed specifically for transfer and is different than other types of associate degrees offered at Moreno Valley College, students seeking to transfer are still able to do so provided they fulfill any admissions, course and program requirements before applying.
