TRANSFER NEWS!

Associate Degrees for Transfer (ADT's):
SB 1440 establishes the Student Transfer Achievement Reform (STAR) Act. SB 1440 requires a community college district to grant an associate degree for transfer to a student in that student’s field of study once a student has met degree and transfer requirements for a particular major. Upon completion of the transfer associate degree, the student is eligible for transfer with junior standing into the California State University (CSU) system. Students will be given priority consideration when applying to a particular program that is similar to the student’s community college area of emphasis. The bill prohibits a community college district or campus from adding local course requirements in addition to requirements of the STAR Act, and prohibits the CSU from requiring a transferring student to repeat courses similar to those taken at the community college that counted toward their associate degree for transfer.

At this time, FLC offers 21 Associate for Transfer Degrees (ADT's): Administration of Justice, Art History, Biology, Business, Communication Studies, Early Childhood Education, Economics, English, Geography, Geology, Kinesiology, Mathematics, Nutrition, Philosophy, Physics, Political Science, Psychology, Public Health Science, Sociology, Studio Arts, and Theatre Arts.  More are being developed!  Please see a counselor for specific program requirements.
 
If you would like to learn more about these state-wide transfer degrees, please visit: www.sb1440.org or www.adegreewithaguarantee.com.
