Transfer Course Credit

The only considerations of associate or bachelor degree transfer work are in the case of general education courses. Associate degree and bachelor degree transfer coursework must be reviewed to ensure they meet UC minimums for a bachelors degree. If they do not, a general education course must be taken in the place of AIS elective(s).
