The Associate in Science in Administration of Justice for Transfer acknowledges that the student has established a foundation in the field of Administration of Justice.

The Associate in Science in Administration of Justice for Transfer covers a broad range of information and professional skills in criminal law, corrections, and the American justice system. The program at Skyline College is designed to educate students on the many aspects of justice administration - from the human, social and moral problems to the larger scope of justice systems.

The Associate in Science Degree 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 completing an AS-T degree are guaranteed admission to the CSU system, but not to a particular campus or major. Students transferring to a CSU campus that accepts the AS-T will be required to complete no more than 60 units after transfer to earn a bachelor's degree. This degree may not be the best option for students intending to transfer to a particular CSU campus or university or a college that is not part of the CSU system. Students should consult with a Skyline College counselor for further information on university admissions and transfer requirements.
