NEW A.A.Transfer Degree (ADT) "Roadmaps" of suggested course sequence:

See more information about the Art Associate Degree for Transfer

Note:  The Associate Degree for Transfer can be seen as a minimum requirement for acceptance as a junior to CSU/UC and other transfer institutions. Many programs require additional portfolio reviews once accepted to the university. We recommend using the ADT as a great starting point, and adding as much extra art media experience that your course schedule will allow, in addition to the GE requirements.
