Mathematics, Associate in Science for Transfer (AS-T)
The field of mathematics covers a wide range of topics. This major is designed to give students exposure to basic information in the discipline and provide the opportunity to focus on the areas that best suit their individual needs. Students should consult with a departmental adviser and/or counselor when choosing both controlled and general electives in order to develop a program of study that is best suited to their specific needs. For example, requirements for the Baccalaureate Degree in Mathematics vary from one institution to another. It is, therefore, essential to become familiar with the requirements of the institution a student plans to attend.
The Associate in Science Degree in Mathematics for Transfer will provide the foundational knowledge to students who want to earn a Baccalaureate Degree in Mathematics at any of the CSU campuses.
Complete 60 CSU-transferable units including General Education, major requirements and CSU-transferable electives as follows:
Complete one of the following patterns:
- Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum “IGETC” for CSU (37 semester units)
- California State University General Education Breadth pattern (40 semester units)

Complete as many units as needed to reach a total of 60 CSU-transferable units (for a list of SBCC-transferable courses to CSU, visit www.assist.org).
Additional Graduation Requirements for AS-T in Mathematics:
- Maintain a cumulative CSU-transferable GPA of 2.0.
- Residency Requirements: Candidates for an Associate Degree are expected to complete 15 semester units in residence at SBCC. Candidates for an Associate Degree are also expected to complete at least 20% of the department major requirements in residence at SBCC.
The Associate Degree will be awarded upon completion of both department and college requirements. These include:
- Complete all department requirements with a “C” or better or “P” in each course. Candidates for an Associate Degree are required to complete at least 20% of the department requirements through SBCC.
- Complete a general education option (Option 1: SBCC General Education and Institutional and Information Competency; Option 2: IGETC; Option 3: CSU GE Breadth). General Education options allowed for each Associate Degree program vary. Refer to http://www.sbcc.edu/apply/degrees_certificates.php for a list of General Education options for each SBCC Associate Degree program;
- Other graduation requirements as outlined on the Graduation Requirements page.
