This Associate in Science degree in Physics for UC Transfer degree is intended to enhance student transfer and increase academic preparation for CCC students as they prepare to transfer into a Physics program at a UC campus. Along with the Transfer Agreement Guarantee (TAG) students completing this degree are guaranteed admission to the UC system, but not necessarily to a particular UC campus or major of their choice. Students should consult with a counselor for more information on university admission and transfer requirements, as this degree in Physics may not be the best option for students intending to transfer to a particular UC campus or to a college or university that is not part of the UC system..
To obtain an Associate in Science degree in Physics for UC Transfer degree, students must:
- Complete 46 semester units in Physics major preparation and IGETC* courses, as prescribed on the UCTP Template.
- Meet the specified requirements as stated in the Transfer Agreement Guarantee (TAG) for the available school.
- Obtain a cumulative minimum grade point average of 3.5 in the major. Students who earn less than 3.5 GPA (UC transferable) still meet the associate degree graduation requirement but will not receive guaranteed admission into a UC.
- Obtain a grade of “C” better, or “P”, in all courses required for the major. Although a “P” grade is allowed (Title 5 section 55063), it is highly recommended that students take the course for a letter grade (A, B, or C) due to unit limitations on “P/NP” courses by the UC system and Moorpark College.
- Complete requirements in residence. For students in the Ventura County Community College District, a minimum of 12 units must be completed in residency at the college granting the degree.
* NOTE: The degree allows for the deferment of two courses in Area 3 (Arts and Humanities) and two courses in Area 4 (Social Science) of the IGETC. These are to be completed at the UC, once transferred.

Upon successful completion of this program, students will be able to:
- discern between relevant and irrelevant evidence, formulate appropriate hypotheses, and distinguish between experiments to determine which one(s) leads to an appropriate conclusion.
- analyze mechanical systems.
- analyze systems involving thermodynamics and electricity and magnetism.
- analyze problems from Mechanics, Electricity Magnetism, Modern Physics, Optics, and Thermodynamics and will be able to recognize and apply equations to solve the problems.
