The Student Transfer Achievement Reform (STAR) Act (Senate Bill 1440, California Education Code sections 66746-66749) guarantees admission to a California State University (CSU) campus for any community college student who completes an "associate degree for transfer", a newly established variation of the associate degrees traditionally offered at a California community college.

The Associate in Arts for Transfer (AA-T) or the Associate in Science for Transfer (AS-T) is intended for students who plan to complete a bachelor's degree in a similar major at a CSU campus. Students who complete an AA-T or AS-T degree are guaranteed admission to the CSU system. Admission to a particular campus or major is not guaranteed; however, AA-T/AS-T students receive priority admission consideration.
Students transferring to a CSU campus that accepts the AA-T or AS-T will be required to complete no more than 60 units after transfer to earn a bachelor's degree (unless the major is a designated "high-unit" major). This degree may not be the best option for students intending to transfer to a particular CSU campus or to university or college that is not part of the CSU system. Students should consult a counselor for assistance with an education plan, identifying similar majors at the CSU campuses, and for additional information about admission requirements.
The following is required for all AA-T and AS-T degrees:
