AA-T and AS-T are acronyms for Associate in Arts and Associate in Science degrees that are designed specifically for transfer to the California State University System. Through SB 1440, the Student Transfer Achievement Reform (STAR) Act, students are guaranteed admission into the CSU system. Students who have earned a verified Associate Degree for Transfer (AA-T or AS-T) from a California Community College, and who have been admitted to a Cal State East Bay major that is deemed similar, are guaranteed to be able to complete their baccalaureate degree within 60 semester units.
After you complete all items for the admissions process, please be sure that you submit an official transcript that has your AS-T or AA-T posted. This will help ensure that your ADT status is designated on your student record. Make an advising appointment with the ADT Advisor in the General Education office, as well as with your Faculty Advisor in your major department.
To maintain the ADT/STAR Act guarantee of completing a CSUEB bachelor’s degree in 60 semester additional units, you are required to:
If you change your major to a major that is not deemed similar to your AA-T or AS-T, you may be required to complete more than 60 semester units in order to graduate. You may also have to complete additional lower division coursework for the new major. You will not, however, be required to complete additional lower division General Education requirements. It is highly recommended you make an appointment with your Major Advisor and the ADT Advisor prior to initiating any changes to your academic plan.
All ADT students should meet with their Major Advisor for requirements specific to their major. Major Advising information can usually be found on your academic department’s website.
ADT students should also meet with the ADT Advisor in the GE Office for GE/Graduation Degree advising and SB 1440 compliance:
