Metro Transfer Academy of Science Logo

The Metro Transfer Academy of Science is a personalized educational home for students who want to graduate with an associate’s degree, smoothly transfer to university, and become leaders in their communities. This transfer academy serves students interested in pursuing careers in the life or computer sciences. Students will consider how science can be used to respond to the social justice issues impacting their communities.

The academy’s general education course pathway prepares students going into a wide variety of science majors, for example Biology, Computer Science, Earth Sciences, Environmental Science, and Geology. All Metro core courses satisfy the transfer requirements for the CSU and UC systems.   

Metro students take two or more courses together each semester, building strong ties among peers, faculty and counselors.
