Background
 The Student Transfer Achievement Reform Act (SB 1440 –
  Padilla), signed into legislation on September 29, 2010,
  enables the California Community Colleges and California
  State University to collaborate on the creation of Associate in
  Arts Degree (AA-T) and Associate in Science (AS-T) Degree
  transfer programs.

 The law requires community colleges to grant a 60-unit
  associate degree for transfer once a student has met general
  education and major requirements. Upon completion of the
  associate degree for transfer, the student is eligible for
  admission with junior standing into the California State
  University (CSU) system.
                                                                 3




Benefits
  Guaranteed admission into CSU system
  Priority admission when applying to a particular program
   that is similar to the student’s community college major
  The law prohibits 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
  The law prohibits CSU from requiring more than an
   additional 60 units for the Bachelor’s degree
                                                           4




Transfer Model Curriculum
 In response to Senate Bill 1440 (Padilla, 2010), the
  Academic Senates for California Community Colleges
  and California State University decided to develop a
  faculty-led, state-wide, effort to identify course
  content for the new associate degrees for
  transfer. The C-ID infrastructure is being used to
  develop and vet the transfer model curriculum (TMC) in
  the most common transfer majors.

 Associate degrees for transfer are either AS-T degrees
  (for STEM and CTE programs) or AA-T degrees (for all
  other programs).
                                                            5




Goals
 The Board of Governors has established a goal that by
  Fall 2013, each community college shall offer AA-T/AS-T
  degrees in 80% of the majors they currently offer for
  which there is a TMC.

 The Board of Governors has established a goal that by
  Fall 2014, each community college shall offer AA-T/AS-T
  degrees in 100% of the majors they currently offer for
  which there is a TMC.
