Associate of Arts/Associate of Science Degree for Transfer (AA-T/AS-T degrees) 

If you are interested in developing an AA-T or AS-T degree, your discipline must have an approved Transfer Model Curriculum.  Currently, the CCC Chancellor's office is collaborating with their counterparts at the CSU, and respective statewide Academic Senates to approve Transfer Model Curriculums for the new transfer degrees.
