The Associate in Ar ts in Psychology for Transfer Degree (Psychology AA-T) is intended for students who plan to complete a bachelor’s degree in a similar major at a CSU campus. Students completing the degree are guaranteed admission to the CSU system, but not to a particular campus or major.
A student graduating with an Associate in Arts in Psychology for Transfer (Psychology AA-T) may transfer to the CSU system to complete a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology or related fields.
To earn a Psychology AA-T Degree, students must complete:
- Certified completion of 60 semester units or 90 quarter units that are eligible for transfer to the California State University, including both of the following:

- A minimum of 18 semester units or 27 quarter units in a major or area of emphasis, as determined by the community college district.
- Obtainment of a minimum grade point average of 2.0 on transfer courses.
- Obtainment of a "C" grade or better, or "P," in all courses required for the major or area of emphasis. Although a "P" grade is allowed (Title 5, Section 55063), it is recommended that students take the course for a letter grade (A, B, or C) due to unit limitations on "P/NP" courses.
- Complete a minimum of 12 units in residency at the college granting the degree.
