Associate in Science for Transfer Degree
Mathematics

The Associate in Science in Mathematics for Transfer (AS-T) Degree is intended to meet the lower division requirements for Mathematics majors at a CSU campus that offers a Mathematics baccalaureate degree.

Mathematics is the language of the physical and technical sciences. As such, this Degree also satisfies the lower division requirements for a variety of baccalaureate degrees including Engineering, Physics, Computer Science and Chemistry.

Please contact the Student Success Team for this program if you have any questions.

Sample Education Plan

This sample education plan for the 2020-2021 catalog year represents one possible pathway through the program. Each university (UC, CSU, private, and others) has their own transfer requirements; please see a counselor to create an education plan that is customized to meet your needs. Additional course descriptions may be found in the College Catalog (in pdf or flipbook format).
