The California Community Colleges and the Association of Independent California Colleges and Universities (AICCU) have entered into a new agreement, allowing California community college students who are pursuing an Associate Degree for Transfer to get guaranteed admission to 36 private, non-profit four-year colleges and universities.

The Associate Degree for Transfer program began in 2011-12, offering guaranteed acceptance to a California State University campus. This new agreement marks a significant expansion of the program since its inception. California community college students with such a degree will now be guaranteed that prior coursework will be transferable to private, non-profit four-year institutions ranging from Azusa Pacific University to Whittier College, while also seeing a more streamlined and simplified transfer process.

More information can be found on the ADegreeWithAGuarantee website.
