The STAR Act makes it easy to transfer from a California community college to one of the 23 California State University (CSU) campuses. By earning a verifiable Associate Degree for Transfer (AA-T or AS-T) at a community college, you will:
- Be guaranteed admission to a CSU when you apply and are admitted to a major program that the CSU campus has “deemed similar”
- Enter the CSU with junior standing
- Be able to finish your bachelor’s degree in 60 more semester units (or 90 quarter units) as long as the major you’re transferring has been accepted as similar to a major at the CSU campus
Find the AA-T or AS-T degree option that’s right for you on the official website sponsored by the California Community Colleges and the California State University at A Degree with a Guarantee.
Before applying to a CSU, visit A Degree with a Guarantee to confirm that your associate degree for transfer program has been accepted for transfer to a major offered by Cal State Northridge or other CSU campus you wish to attend.
