Associate Degree for Transfer

Earning an AA-T or AS-T degree at PCC guarantees you admission to many four-year universities with junior standing and prepares you to complete a bachelor degree in a similar major at a CSU or a participating UC, HBCU or private university.

Associate (AA/AS) Degree

The AA and AS degrees can stand alone, giving you the skills to enter the workforce. Or, they can be the first steps towards earning a bachelor degree at a four-year university.

Our Certificates of Achievement give you the knowledge and training you need to enter a specialized career or enhance your skills for advancement in your job. Certificates (18+ units), combined with the completion of General Education coursework may also be applied to an Associate Degree to further increase your employability.
