Administration of Justice: AS-T Degree

The AS-T in the Administration of Justice is designed to provide a clear pathway to a CSU major and baccalaureate degree. California Community College students who are awarded an AS-T degree are guaranteed admission with junior standing somewhere in the CSU system and given priority admission consideration to their local CSU campus or to a program that is deemed similar to the Criminal Justice and Criminology major. This priority does not guarantee admission to specific majors or campuses. Students who have been awarded an AA-T or AS-T are able to complete their remaining requirements for the 120-unit baccalaureate degree within 60 semester units.
