Computer Science for Transfer, AS-T

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Program, Degree and Certificate List

The Computer Science Department in the School of Mathematics, Computer Science and Engineering conducts a program designed for students who are developing computer science skills in preparation for transfer to a four-year college or university or an Associate in Science degree in Computer Science. Courses are intended to meet the needs of students at various levels of competence. The department acquaints students with the presently available methods of computer science that are useful in solving problems of science, industry, and government; prepares students for the additional formal education and self-education required in this ever-developing field; and fosters students’ abilities to solve computer science problems.

The Associate in Science in Computer Science for Transfer degree (AS-T in Computer Science) was developed to meet the requirements of SB1440, formalized as California Education Code §§66745-66749, by matching existing IVC course outlines of record to the Transfer Model Curriculum for Computer Science. This degree was designed to transfer to any CSU that offers a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science.

Pursuant to SB 1440, section 66756, to earn an AS-T in Computer Science students must:

  •  Complete 60 semester or 90 quarter CSU transferable units.
  • Obtain a minimum grade point average (GPA) of at least 2.0 in all CSU transferable coursework.
  • Complete and obtain certification of the California State University General Education-Breadth pattern or the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC for CSU) pattern.
  • All courses in the major must be completed with a grade of C or Better (Title 5 § 55063). 

Total Units Required: 30

*Cross-listed course: Area credit given in one area only.
