Degree Requirements

California Community College students interested in transfer to a California State University (CSU) are encouraged to learn more about the Associate in Arts or Associate in Science for Transfer (AA-T or AS-T) Degrees. These Transfer Degrees are two-year associate degrees that are fully transferable to the CSU and are no more than 60 semester units. They are designed to provide a clear pathway for transfer to a CSU. California Community College students awarded an AA-T or AS-T degree, and who meet the CSU’s minimum eligibility requirements are guaranteed priority admission to a CSU campus, though not necessarily to a particular campus or major.
Students interested in a Math degree from LA Mission College are encouraged to follow the course sequence below to receive an AS-T in Mathematics.

Transfer Information

Students who plan to earn a Bachelor's Degree should take a sequence of courses designed to complete the general education pattern and the lower division preparation for their major of the college to which they will transfer. Los Angeles Mission College can provide the lower division preparation for most majors at most universities. For purposes of classification, students who are paralleling the work of four-year colleges and universities are indicated as "transfer students."

With careful planning, a student can complete the requirements for an Associate Degree while simultaneously completing the lower division preparation for most universities. Three requirements must be met in order to attain full junior standing at the UCs, the CSUs, or most independent universities to which students expect to transfer.

These requirements are as follows:
  1. Completion of 60 transferable units (units may vary at independent universities).
  2. Completion of the specific General Education Requirements for junior standing in the proposed college or university.
  3. Completion of the lower division prerequisites for selected majors. These vary according to the institution in which students expect to enroll.

Note: Students expecting to transfer to such institutions should contact the Los Angeles Mission College Transfer Center to see a counselor and consult the respective catalog of these institutions regarding specific requirements for upper division standing.
