The Student Achievement Reform Act (SB 1440) establishes guidelines for California Community College students who have earned a Transfer Associate of Arts (AA-T) or Associate of Science (AS-T) degree. These Associate Degrees for Transfer (ADT) guarantees admission to a campus of the California State University system with junior standing over all other transfer students. Earning an ADT from a California Community College allows students to satisfy most, if not all, lower division general education requirements and major requirements for transfer to California State University, San Bernardino at the same time. Students with an ADT from a CSUSB local area community college are given priority in the application review process.
Once an ADT student has been admitted to a similar Baccalaureate (BA/BS) degree program, the ADT student will only be required to complete 60 semester/90 quarter additional prescribed units to qualify for the similar Baccalaureate (BA/BS) degree.
