Transfer with a Guarantee
The Associate Degree for Transfer (AA-T or AS-T) guarantees students will meet the California State University system minimum eligibility requirements. Students earning an AA-T or AS-T will be admitted to a CSU (not necessarily to a particular campus or major). You may be granted a bump in your GPA when applying to an impacted campus outside your local area or an impacted major that is deemed similar. Once at the CSU, if you are admitted and enrolled in a designated similar degree program, you have the opportunity to complete your bachelor’s degree with as little as 60 semester units or 90 quarter units of coursework. A counselor will help you determine which CSU’s offer bachelor’s degrees that correspond to your AA-T or AS-T degree. It is still important for you to apply to the schools that interest you and follow admissions deadlines to be considered. Meet with a counselor to develop an education plan that puts you on the path toward the AA-T or AS-T degree.

The first term is a critical time for new students and the counselors at MSJC are ready to help you launch a successful beginning, starting with the New Student Counseling Session.
The New Student Counseling Session: For first-time college students -- During the session, counselors will work with students to develop education plans that will help them understand the courses needed to meet the requirements of their individual program of study and achieve their educational goals.

To ensure students are on track, all students are required to possess a comprehensive education plan once they reach 15 degree applicable units or have attended MSJC for two terms. Once a comprehensive plan has been developed, students are encouraged to communicate with a counselor periodically to confirm that their educational path is still on track.
Counselors at MSJC are here to assist you by developing an educational plan that will help you meet your educational goals.
MSJC Counselors can help:
