Kinesiology Associate in Arts for Transfer (AA-T)

The Student Transfer Achievement Reform Act (Senate Bill 1440, now codified in California Education Code sections 66746-66749) guarantees admission to a California State University (CSU) campus for any community college student who completes an “associate degree for transfer”, a newly established variation of the associate degrees traditionally offered at a California community college. The Associate in Arts for Transfer (AA-T) or the Associate in Science for Transfer (AS-T) is intended for students who plan to complete a bachelor's degree in a similar major at a CSU campus. Students completing these degrees (AA-T or AS-T) are guaranteed admission to the CSU system, but not to a particular campus or major. In order to earn one of these degrees, students must complete:
 
1. Completion of 60 semester units or 90 quarter units that are eligible for transfer to the California State University, including both of the following:
a.    The Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) or the California State University General Education – Breadth Requirements.
b.    A minimum of 18 semester units or 27 quarter units in a major or area of emphasis, as determined by the community college district.
2. Obtainment of a minimum grade point average of 2.0.
Associate Degrees for Transfer also require that students must earn a C or better in all courses required for the major or area of emphasis.
This degree may not be the best option for students intending to transfer to a particular CSU campus or to university or college that is not part of the CSU system. Students should consult with a counselor when planning to complete the degree for more information on university admission and transfer requirements. At the time of catalog publication, a student may earn an AA-T in Kinesiology. Additional majors are being developed. Please see a counselor or visit http://www.canyons.edu for more information.

Student Learning Outcome
Demonstrate proficiency in the core academic skills and knowledge required for transfer into a kinesiology program at a four-year college or university.
