Mathematics has been an important academic discipline in its own right for over 2500 years. In addition, mathematics provides the foundation for the study of physical, biological, health and computer sciences, engineering, statistics, economics, and many other disciplines. Mathematics graduates are employed as computer programmers, actuaries, data analysts, financial analysts, operations researchers, and educators. Others continue their studies and pursue advanced degrees in business, medicine, and law.

The Associate in Science in Mathematics for Transfer (AS-T) degree is intended for students who plan to complete a baccalaureate degree in Mathematics or a related field of study at a California State University. Students who complete this degree are guaranteed admission to the CSU system, but not to a particular campus or major. Students transferring to a CSU campus that accepts the AS-T will be required to complete no more than 60 semester units after transfer to earn a baccalaureate degree.

To be awarded the Associate Degree for Transfer, students must have the following:
  • Completion of 60 CSU transferable semester units.
  • A minimum of at least 2.0 GPA in CSU transferable courses (note that a higher GPA may be required in some institutions).
  • Completion of at least 18 units in the major with a grade of “C” or better. A “P” (Pass) grade is also an acceptable grade for courses in the major if the course is taken on a Pass/No Pass basis.
  • Certified completion of the CSU General Education-Breadth (CSU GE-Breadth) requirements, or completion of the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) for CSU requirements.

Please Note: No more than 60 semester units are required for this degree and no additional requirements will be imposed by Evergreen Valley College.

Program Learning Outcomes

  • Develop creative and logical solutions to various abstract and practical problems.
  • Use mathematics to model and solve applied problems in engineering and science.
  • Demonstrate didactic reasoning to construct elementary proofs to theorems.

What is a Program Map?

A program map is a suggested semester-by-semester plan to help you complete the courses required for a particular degree or certificate. It is based on the major sheet for the particular degree or certificate you are interested in. It includes courses required for the major, general education and any necessary electives. 

A program map is a representation of the major sheet. It includes the specific specialty courses in a major, general education courses and any necessary electives. 

What is a Major Sheet?

A major sheet includes a description of the program you are interested in, what you can expect to learn once you have completed the program (Program Learning Outcomes) and the specific specialty courses you will need to complete within a major.
