The Associate in Science in Physics for Transfer degree provides a foundation in physics and mathematics for students planning to transfer into a baccalaureate program in physics or physics education. This background should provide students with the tools to successfully complete a bachelor’s degree.

Students who complete the Associate in Science in Physics for Transfer degree receive priority admission to the California State University system, though admission to a specific campus is not guaranteed. While an associate degree may support attempts to gain entry-level employment or promotion, a baccalaureate or higher degree is recommended for those considering professional careers, which can be achieved through transfer.

Please refer to Graduation Requirements  for more information on transfer degree requirements
