ADT in Biology
A.S. Transfer Degree
Students receiving this transfer degree must meet the following requirements:
- Completion of 60 semester units or 90 quarter units that are eligible for transfer to the California State University, including both of the following:
- The Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) or the California State University General Education - Breadth Requirements.
- A minimum of 18 semester units or 27 quarter units in a major or area of emphasis, as determined by the community college district.
- Obtainment of a minimum grade point average of 2.0.
ADTs also require that students must earn a "C" or better in all courses required for the major or area of emphasis. A “P” (Pass) grade is not an acceptable grade for courses in the major.

A.S.-Transfer Degree Level Student Learning Outcomes
Students completing the Biology A.S.-Transfer Degree will:
- Demonstrate an understanding of biological concepts.
- Acquire scientific information from multiple sources including textbooks, the Internet, personal communication with professionals in the field, and educational computer software.
- Estimate and/or calculate the characteristics of biological systems and demonstrate an understanding of these calculations in order to better understand the natural processes that produce these characteristics.
- Formulate scientific hypotheses in order to distinguish between scientific and non-scientific questions and methods.
- Develop an understanding of relevant biological processes as well as processes from related sciences (e.g. physics, geology, chemistry) and apply these processes to predict the properties of biological systems.
- Examine how human activity has contributed to positive and negative changes in the environment to better understand and discuss past, current, and future environmental issues.
