SB 1440: Student Transfer Achievement Reform Act
Commencing during the 2011-2012 academic year, Senate Bill 1440 requires a student who receives an associate's degree for transfer to be deemed eligible for transfer into a CSU baccalaureate program. Further, the law guarantees admission to the CSU system at the junior level for such students and prohibits the CSUs from requiring transfer students from repeating similar courses already completed. The law intends to help fill the anticipated college-graduate gap and shortage of educated workers by incentivizing students to pursue their AA/AS degrees while preparing for transfer. The specific language of this bill can be found here: Senate Bill No. 1440.pdf
