Associate Degree For Transfer
An option that allows students to complete an Associate's degree while satisfying lower division general education and major requirements for transfer at the same time.
If you are applying to an extremely competitive "impacted" major/campus, you also still need to visit both www.assist.org and the individual campus website for major-specific admission requirements to find all of the required courses and steps to be eligible and competitive for admission.
