The Associate in Arts in Economics for Transfer program provides a foundation in economics and the mathematics necessary for upper-division economics for students planning to transfer into a baccalaureate program in economics. This background should provide students with the tools to successfully complete a bachelor’s degree. Students who complete the Associate in Arts in Economics for Transfer receive priority admission to the California State University system, though admission to a specific campus is not guaranteed. An associate degree may support attempts to gain entry-level employment or promotion, but a baccalaureate or higher degree, which can be achieved through transfer, is recommended for those considering careers in the discipline.

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