Articulation agreement information is available on the internet for the CSU, UC and AICCU education systems. Students may also be provided with further information by contacting a counselor or an educational advisor in the Career Center.

Articulation agreements are not available with all campuses.

Students should plan on meeting as much lower division pre-major course articulation work as possible prior to transfer. This will not guarantee that a student will be admitted; however, it will increase the competitive edge a student may have in transferring.

Articulation agreement information is available on the ASSIST web page for CSU and UC systems.

Additional admissions and articulation updates can be found at:

Private University Articulation Agreements

Students have to meet minimum criteria for consideration of an agreement. Please meet with a counselor early in the semester to find out more about these guaranteed admissions. Some campuses have a specific deadline date for applying for the agreement.
