Foothill College Next SFSU

Foothill Now Offers 20 Associate Degrees for Transfer

A Degree with a Guarantee

Foothill College offers 20 associate degrees for transfer, a new type of degree that guarantees you priority when transferring to a California State University (CSU) campus.

The new associate in arts for transfer (AA–T) and associate in science for transfer (AS–T) degrees were developed by the California Community Colleges and CSU systems. Foothill is developing more of the popular transfer degrees to offer in future quarters.

The AA–T and AS–T degrees make it easier for you to transfer between the two higher education systems. They also mark the first time in California history that community college students who complete the new degree are guaranteed admission to the CSU system with junior standing. When you complete an AA–T or AS–T, you also receive a special GPA advantage when applying to impacted CSU campuses and majors.

At Foothill, the associate degrees for transfer can be completed with 90 transferable quarter units and include coursework in general education, major preparation and electives. Foothill’s associate degrees for transfer include:

  • Anthropology (AA–T)
  • Art History (AA–T)
