Introduction

The Associate in Science in Biology for Transfer (AS-T in Biology) provides a clear pathway to a CSU institution for students who plan to transfer and complete a CSU major or baccalaureate degree in Biology.

California Community College students who are awarded an Associate in Science in Biology for Transfer (AS-T in Biology) are guaranteed admission with junior standing somewhere in the CSU system and given priority admission consideration to their local CSU institution or to a program that is deemed similar to their community college major.

This priority does not guarantee admission to specific majors or institutions. The Associate in Science in Biology for Transfer (AS-T in Biology) offered by Mission College is designed to prepare students who complete the coursework outlined below.

Through intensive training in organismal, molecular, and environmental biology, students will develop the ability to think critically and abstractly, as well as acquire the problem-solving and laboratory skills necessary for success in any field of biological science.

Students completing this program will have a solid foundation in basic biology, evolutionary theory, and the scientific method, as well as strong preparation in the supporting fields of mathematics, chemistry, and physics.
