DEGREE AND TRANSFER OPTIONS
Coastline awards the degrees of Associate in Arts (AA), Associate in Science (AS), and Associate’s Degrees for Transfer (AA-T and AA-S.) Coastline's AA and AS degrees may be earned with the students choice of General Education patterns.
Coastline’s Option 1 AA/AS degree is designed to provide students with the necessary skills to compete successfully in a culturally diverse and global job market. The Option 1 degree requires students to complete 18 units of specified General Education coursework. This option is designed for students pursuing a degree and who may or may not be planning to transfer to a four-year institution. Most of the coursework in this option is applicable towards transfer. Most four year schools do require General Education coursework beyond Coastline's Option 1 requirements for acceptance as a Junior into their Bachelor's degree programs. If you plan to transfer into a Bachelor's degree program, you should be prepared to complete several additional General Education courses in order to fully prepare for transfer. It is important to schedule an appointment with a Coastline counselor for guidance in selecting your courses.
Coastline’s Option 2 AA/AS/AA-A/AS-T degree is designed for students who are planning to transfer to a university in the California State University (CSU) system. It may also be appropriate for transfer to some independent colleges. The Option 2 degree requires students to complete 39 units of specified General Education coursework.
Coastline’s Option 3 AA/AS/AA-A/AS-T degree is designed for students who are planning to transfer to a university in the CSU or UC system. It may also be appropriate for transfer to some independent colleges. The Option 3 degree requires students to complete at least 37 units of specified General Education coursework.
DEGREE PARTNERSHIP PATHWAYS PROGRAM
Through our Degree Partnership Pathways Program, Coastline has partnered with several colleges and universities to enable you to transfer your Coastline Associate's degree into one of their Bachelor's degree programs with ease. These formal agreements assure students that specified coursework completed at Coastline will transfer and can satisfy general education and/or lower-division major prep requirements or elective courses. With customized degree roadmaps outlining requirements needed to complete the desired degree, these pathways offer students a seamless transition. Our partner schools are all affiliated with Servicemember's Opportunity Colleges (SOC), regionally accredited, and will accept Coastline's credits in transfer. Students interested in learning more about our articulation agreements or exploring one of our partnerships can schedule an appointment with one of our experienced counselors.
