The Associate in Arts in Kinesiology for Transfer degree provides students with the opportunity to meet the lower division requirements for transfer in the Kinesiology major. 

This associate degree is designed to provide a clear pathway to a CSU major and baccalaureate degree. California Community College students who are awarded an AA-T or AS-T degree are guaranteed admission with junior standing somewhere in the CSU system and given priority admission consideration to their local CSU campus or to a program that is deemed similar to their community college major. This priority does not guarantee admission to specific majors or campuses. Current and prospective community college students are encouraged to meet with a Counselor to develop an educational plan that best meets their goals and needs.

Completion of 60 semester or 90 quarter CSU-transferable units that include:

  • A minimum of 25-27.5 semester units as required for the Associates in Arts in Kinesiology for Transfer Degree, and
