Note:  The Associate Degree for Transfer can be seen as a minimum requirement for acceptance as a junior to CSU/UC and other transfer institutions. Many programs require additional portfolio reviews once accepted to the university. We recommend using the ADT as a great starting point, and adding as much extra art media experience that your course schedule will allow, in addition to the GE requirements.
