Associate in Science in Mathematics for Transfer Degree (A.S.T in Mathematics)
The Associate in Science in Mathematics for Transfer degree (AST in Mathematics) is a 60 unit program which is designed to provide lower division education to students planning to transfer to a CSU institution in pursuit of a baccalaureate degree in Mathematics. Students completing the program will be able to solve problems using mathematical symbols, operations, and techniques; apply appropriate technology including calculators and computers to the solution of mathematical problems; demonstrate computational, estimation, and problemsolving skills; construct mathematical models of physical problems, draw conclusions from these models, and communicate those conclusions; formulate and test mathematical conjectures; and adapt general mathematical techniques to coursespecific problems.
Students must complete the following requirements:
 60 semester or 90 quarter CSUtransferable units
 the California State UniversityGeneral EducationBreadth pattern (CSU GEBreadth); OR the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) pattern.
 a minimum of 18 semester or 27 quarter units in the major or area of emphasis as determined by the community college district.
 obtainment of a minimum grade point average (GPA) of 2.0.
 earn a grade of C or better in all courses required for the major or area of emphasis.
Students are not required to complete the information competency requirements, PE requirements or cultural diversity requirements found in other degrees at the College.
