The Associate in Science in Administration of Justice for Transfer (AS-T in Administration of Justice) builds upon our existing Associate in Science degree in Administration of Justice, is designed to facilitate the successful transfer to baccalaureate Criminal Justice degree programs within the CSU system, and will provide students with lower division breadth and depth in the field of Criminal Justice. The Associate in Science in Administration of Justice for Transfer will expose students to the core principles and practices in the field of Administration of Justice and prepares students for transfer into bachelor's degree programs in Criminal Justice and similar areas. Completion of the Associate in Science in Administration of Justice for Transfer meets minimum eligibility for transfer to the California State University system and is compliant with the Student Transfer Achievement Reform Act as established by Senate Bill 1440. Proper selection of curriculum electives further enables students to study other academic disciplines, such as political science, sociology, psychology, and public administration. The Associate in Science in Administration of Justice for Transfer (AS-T in Administration of Justice) is also appropriate for students considering law school Requirements for Associate in Arts for Transfer or Associate in Science for Transfer The Student Transfer Achievement Reform Act (Senate Bill 1440, now codified in California Education Code sections 66746-66749) guarantees admission to a California State University (CSU) campus for any community college student who completes an "associate degree for transfer," a newly established variation of the associate degrees traditionally offered at a California community college. The Associate in Arts for Transfer (AA-T) or the Associate in Science for Transfer (AS-T) is intended for students who plan to complete a bachelor's degree in a similar major at a CSU campus. Students completing these degrees (AA-T or AS-T) are guaranteed admission to the CSU system, but not to a particular campus or major. To earn an AS-T degree, students must meet the following requirements: 1. Completion of 60 semester units or 90 quarter units that are eligible for transfer to the California State University; 2. The Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) or the California State University General Education-Breadth Requirements; 3. A minimum of 18 semester units or 27 quarter units in a major or area of emphasis, as determined by the community college district; 4. Obtainment of a minimum of grade point average of 2.0; 5. A grade of "C" or better in all courses required for the major of emphasis. A "P" (Pass) grade is not an acceptable grade for the courses in the major. Please note: Students are not required to complete local Skyline College Associate Degree Requirements. For further information, please meet with a Skyline College Counselor. Students transferring to a CSU campus that accepts the AA-T or AS-T will be required to complete no more than 60 units after transfer to earn a bachelor's degree (unless the major is a designated "high-unit" major). This degree may not be the best option for students intending to transfer to a particular CSU campus or to university or college that is not part of the CSU system. Students should consult with a counselor when planning to complete the degree for more information on university admission and transfer requirements.
