(Major Code: 1105.00)
The Associate in Arts in Spanish for Transfer (AA-T) is a degree that provides a solid lower-division preparation for students who intend to transfer to a California State University (CSU) for a bachelor’s degree in Spanish. This degree is designed to provide a clear pathway to a CSU and guarantee admissions to a CSU. Although, students are guaranteed admissions, it is not to any particular campus or program in the CSU system. Students will be required to meet with a counselor for specific university major preparation at the college of their choice in order to facilitate a seamless transition. This coursework will satisfy the lower division Spanish requirements at some of the CSU campuses. Information on which campuses accept this degree can be found at www.sb1440.org.
Students should consult the Counseling Office for major preparation, degree completion, and general education requirements of the particular transfer institution of their choice. Transfer students who want to also obtain an Associate Degree may do so by completing all WLAC general education requirements, plus at least 18 units in the major as required by the transfer institution (a total of 60 units for an Associate Degree).
This degree complies with The Student Transfer Achievement Reform Act (Senate Bill 1440). Information on which campuses accept this degree can be found at www.sb1440.org. Students who complete an ADT and transfer to a similar major at a CSU are guaranteed a pathway to finish their baccalaureate degrees in 60 semester or 90 quarter units. These degrees require students to meet both of the following requirements:
- Completion of 60 semester units or 90 quarter units that are eligible for transfer to the California State University, including both of the following:
- The Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) or the California State University General Education-Breadth Requirements.
- A minimum of 18 semester units or 27 quarter units in a major or area of emphasis, as determined by the community college district and meeting the requirements of an approved transfer model curriculum.
- Obtainment of a minimum grade point average of 2.0.
