Statewide Agreements & Transfer Guides

Statewide Agreements

Transfer Guides

Besides gtPathways and the articulation and transfer agreements CSU has Transfer Guides may apply to you. If you complete an Associate of Arts or Associate of Science degree, 60 credit hours of your A.A. or A.S. degree are guaranteed to transfer to CSU, once you are accepted for admission. And, you may be able to finish a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree within another 60 credit hours. This is called a 60 + 60 transfer plan. Note that some bachelor’s degrees require more than an additional 60 credits to complete. When in doubt, speak to an advisor.
