Physics Associate in Science for Transfer

The Associate in Science in Physics for Transfer, also called the Physics AS-T Degree, is designed to prepare students for a seamless transfer with junior status to a CSU campus in a program or major in Physics for completion of a baccalaureate degree. Upon successful completion of courses leading to the Physics AS-T Degree the student will be able to know and understand Physics concepts, skills and application to attain upper division status in Physics at most 4-year institutions.This degree requires students to complete 60 CSU transferable units including completion of CSU GE or IGETC and 24 units in the major with a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or better. Title 5 requires that students earn a grade of “C” or better in all courses required for the major or area of emphasis. There are no additional graduation requirements. Students are advised to consult with a counselor to verify transfer requirements.
