From ADT to Lancer

The pathway from Associate Degree for Transfer (ADT) to California Baptist University Lancer is simple and straightforward, and it starts at a community college.

Students will enter any California Community College and complete an Associate of Arts for Transfer (AA-T) or Associate of Science for Transfer (AS-T) degree. This is A Degree with a Guarantee.  Once completed, the Associate Degree for Transfer program promises:

  • Guaranteed admission to CBU
  • A minimum of 60 semester credits
  • Students will enter at junior class standing
  • For those entering a similar degree program as their ADT, a bachelor’s degree can be completed within two years
