The Associate Degree for Transfer (AA-T or AS-T) is a special, new degree offered at California Community Colleges. The guarantee itself means that students who earn an AA-T or AS-T degree and meet the CSU minimum eligibility requirements are guaranteed admission to a CSU, but not necessarily to a particular campus or major. With the special degree, you may be given a GPA bump when applying to an impacted campus outside your local area or an impacted major that is deemed similar. In addition, once at the CSU, if you are admitted and enrolled in a designated similar degree program you have the opportunity to complete your bachelor's degree with as little as 60 semester units or 90 quarter units of coursework. http://adegreewithaguarantee.com/

P.C. 832 AOJ 50B meets the 24-hour firearms requirement of the two-module P.C. 832 course as certified by the California Commission on Peace Officer Standards for Training (POST). The first three meetings are classroom instruction and the final four involve live fire on the police range. Prior to being admitted to the range students must provide the Program Coordinator with a Department of Justice Clearance Letter stating that they are not of a class of persons prohibited from possessing a concealable firearm and do not have active restraining orders against them. To obtain this, students must have their fingerprints taken (Live Scan) at the local police/sheriff's department and pay a fee for the search and services. This is not required for students sponsored by a law enforcement agency provided the agency is willing to state such on department letterhead. Information on how to fill out the Live Scan request for service form can be obtained from the AOJ Office or the Registration office. No other background checks will suffice for this mandate. If the Clearance Letter is not provided, the student will be dropped. Students must each provide their own firearm, ammunition, holster, utility belt, magazines or speed loaders and the appropriate holders, eye and ear protection, and a handgun cleaning kit made for their firearm type. There will be no sharing of firearms. All firearms and equipment must be approved by the Range Master. Students under 21 must deliver to the Coordinator a letter signed by a parent or guardian meeting the specifications set forth in section 12100 of the California Penal Code, giving their permission for the student to possess a concealable firearm, ammunition, and to participate in this firearms training course. Students under 18 may not take this course. The certificate issued to those passing the course is valid for three years only, unless the student becomes employed as a peace officer. Students are reminded that there is a 10-day waiting period for the delivery of new or used firearms. Questions should be referred to the Administration of Justice Office. DO NOT BRING YOUR FIREARM OR AMMUNITION TO THE CLASSROOM
