A Degree with a Guarantee Program: This is a joint transfer program between California Community Colleges and the California State University systems. Students who complete an AA-T or AS-T degree at a CA community college will be guaranteed admission to the CSU system and enter with guaranteed junior standing within the similar major. Students will need only 60 more semester units (or 90 quarter units) to complete a bachelor's degree. Students who complete an AA-T or AS-T will be given a special GPA advantage when applying to CSU impacted campuses or majors. See Columbia's approved AA-T and AS-T programs here.
