Officials to talk Associate Degree for Transfer program

Community college, CSU leaders to brief student newspapers

California Community Colleges and California State University officials plan to discuss the new Associate Degree for Transfer program with student newspaper editors, reporters and faculty advisors during a conference call Wednesday.

Erik Skinner, the CCC deputy chancellor, and Ephraim P. Smith, the CSU executive vice chancellor and chief academic officer, will be part of the call.

The Associate Degree for Transfer program is a joint effort of the two systems and developed to make it easier for students to transfer between the two higher education systems, according to a news release.

Under the new program, California community college students who complete an AA-T or AS-T degree will be guaranteed admission to the CSU system with junior standing — an opportunity to complete two degrees with 120 units, the release stated.

Skinner and Smith will provide an update on the implementation of the program and discuss resources available for colleges to help promote the program to their students.
