Transfer Information and Requirements

undefined

Students planning to transfer have a wide variety of options. The California State University with 23 campuses, the University of California with 10 campuses, and over 60 private/independent colleges in California provide a wide range of academic programs, physical and academic environments, and social climates. College of the Sequoias offers the equivalent of the first half of these college and university programs. Students wishing to pursue any of these goals should meet with a counselor as early as possible to discuss their plans. Careful planning will help students avoid mistakes which could prolong their academic pursuits.

Successful transfer planning requires the following steps:

  • Selecting a career goal
  • Selecting an appropriate major to meet your career goal
  • Selecting an appropriate college or university
  • Planning and completing an appropriate transfer program
  • Completing the application process

All colleges and universities have specific admissions requirements and may have special course and unit requirements, as well as minimum grade point averages that must be met prior to transfer. Once students identify their major and the college or university to which they wish to transfer, they should consult the catalog of that college or university for specific requirements. Catalogs for the California State University campuses, the University of California campuses, and selected private/independent colleges are available online and in the Transfer Center. Students interested in purchasing their own catalog can do so by writing directly to the college or university.

Colleges and universities require students to complete specific general education requirements as well as major requirements for the baccalaureate degree. Students can complete both general education and lower division major requirements at COS prior to transfer. COS maintains articulation agreements for selected majors at many colleges, and COS counselors can assist with interpreting the agreements, catalog statements, and other requirements.

In accordance with Executive Order No. 167 from the Chancellor’s Office of the California State Universities and Colleges, College of the Sequoias has developed a list of courses which are baccalaureate level. Courses that are numbered 001-199 are accepted by the California State Universities and most private, independent colleges. Courses numbered 001-099 are accepted by the University of California; however, students should consult the “University of California Transfer Course List” in this catalog for specific limitations. COS courses that transfer to universities meet various requirements depending upon the school and major selected.

Students are responsible for complying with regulations and instructions set forth in catalogs, for selecting the courses which will permit them to meet their educational objectives, and for satisfying any program or course prerequisites. College requirements and articulation agreements are constantly changing; contents of this catalog represent our best attempt to provide current and pertinent information for transfer students.

California State University Transfer Information

Associate in Arts for Transfer (AA-T) or Associate in Science for Transfer (AS-T)

The Student Transfer Achievement Reform Act (Senate Bill 1440, now codified in California Education Code sections 66746-66749) guarantees admission to California State University (CSU) campus for any community college student who completes an “associate degree for transfer,” a newly established variation of the associate degrees traditionally offered at a California community college. The Associate in Arts for Transfer (AA-T) or the Associate in Science for Transfer (AS-T) is intended for students who plan to complete a bachelor’s degree in a similar major at a CSU campus. Students completing these degrees (AA-T or AS-T) are guaranteed admission to the CSU system, but not to a particular campus or major. In order to earn one of these degrees, students must complete a minimum of 60 required semester units of CSU-transferable coursework with a minimum GPA of 2.0. Students transferring to a CSU campus that does accept the AA-T or AS-T will be required to complete no more than 60 units after transfer to earn a bachelor’s degree (unless the major is a designated “high-unit” major). This degree may not be the best option for students intending to transfer to a particular CSU campus or to a university or college that is not part of the CSU system. Students should consult with a counselor when planning to complete the degree for more information on university admission and transfer requirements.

The following is required for all AA-T or AS-T degrees:

  1. Minimum of 60 CSU-transferable semester units.
  2. Minimum grade point average (GPA) of at least 2.0 in all CSU-transferable coursework. While a minimum of 2.0 is required for admission, some majors may require a higher GPA. Please consult with a counselor for more information.
  3. Completion of a minimum of 18 semester units in an “AA-T” or “AS-T” major as detailed in the program requirements page of the degree. All courses in the major must be completed with a grade of C or better. (Title 5 §55063).
  4. Certified completion of the California State University General Education-Breadth pattern (CSU GE Breadth); OR the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) pattern, including Area 1C: Oral Communication (CSU requirement only).

CSU Minimum Upper Division Transfer Requirements

If a student has completed at least 60 transferable semester (90 quarter) units, has a grade point average of 2.0 (C) or better in all transferable units attempted, and is in good standing at the last college or university attended, he may be eligible for upper division transfer if he has completed at least 30 semester (45 quarter) units of college courses with a grade of “C” or better in each course to be selected from courses in English, arts and humanities, social science, science and mathematics at a level at least equivalent to courses that meet general education requirements.

The 30 semester (45 quarter) units must include all of the general education requirements in communication in the English language (at least 9 semesters or 12 quarter units to include written communication, oral communication, and critical thinking) and mathematics (at least 3 semester or 4 quarter units) or, if completing the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum, English communication (at least 9 semester or 12 quarter units in English composition, oral communication, and critical thinking) and the requirement in mathematics (at least 3 semester or 4 quarter units). Required courses must be completed by deadlines established by the university.

General Education Requirements for CSU

All campuses of the CSU system require a minimum of 48 units of general education. Thirty-nine of these units may be taken at community colleges. Beginning with Fall 1991, students may fulfill the lower division general education requirements prior to transfer by completing one of the following three options:

  1. The California State University General Education (CSU GE) Certification which will fulfill the lower division breadth/general education requirements for all CSU campuses.
  2. The Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) certification which will fulfill the lower division breadth/general education requirements for all CSU and most UC campuses.
  3. The specific lower division breadth/general education requirements of the campus to which they intend to transfer.

CSU GE Certification

“Certification” means that College of the Sequoias has verified that a student has completed the lower division general education requirements for the California State University. Certification is important because without it students will be held to the general education requirements specific to the CSU campus to which the student transfers. Courses from other colleges and universities may be considered for certification by petition through a process called “pass along certification”:

  1. courses taken at CSU campuses, participating private colleges and universities*, and other California Community Colleges will be certified in the subject areas (AREA A - E) approved by the institution where the courses were taken,
  2. courses taken at other regionally accredited colleges and universities will be certified only if the course is determined to be equivalent to a course in a California Community College Certification Pattern. Courses deemed equivalent would be certified in the areas (AREA A - E) in which the equivalent courses have been approved.
*

Participating private colleges and universities include: Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising, Humphreys College, Marymount College, and San Joaquin Valley College.

University of California Transfer Information

Eligibility for Transfer to UC

If a student was eligible for admission to the University of California when she graduated from high school — meaning she satisfied the subject, scholarship, and examination requirements, or were identified by the University during the senior year in high school as being eligible under the Eligibility in the Local Context (ELC) Program, she is eligible to transfer if she has a “C” (2.0) average in her transferable college coursework.

If a student met the Scholarship Requirement, but did not satisfy the 15-course Subject Requirement, she must take transferable college courses in the missing subjects, earn a “C” or better in each required course and maintain a 2.0 GPA in all transferable coursework to be eligible for transfer.

If a student was not eligible for admission to the University when she graduated from high school because of not meeting the Scholarship Requirement, she must:

  1. Complete 60 semester (90 quarter) units of transferable college credit with a grade point average of at least 2.4 (2.8 for nonresidents); NO more than 14 semester/21 quarter units may be taken (pass/not pass), and;
  2. Complete the following seven transferable college courses, earning a grade of “C” or better in each course:
    1. Two transferable college courses (3 semester or 4-5 quarter units each) in English composition, and;
    2. One transferable college course (3 semester 4-5 quarter units) in mathematical concepts and quantitative reasoning, and;
    3. Four transferable college courses (3 semester or 4-5 quarter units each) chosen from at least two of the following subject areas: the arts and humanities, the social and behavioral sciences, the physical and biological sciences.

Students who satisfy the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum prior to transferring to UC will satisfy Requirement 2 above of the transfer admission requirements.

General Education Requirements for UC

Each school and college at every UC campus has its own breadth/general education requirements. Students may fulfill the lower division breadth/general education requirements at most UC campuses by completing one of the following two options:

  1. The Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum which will fulfill the lower division breadth/general education requirements for most UC and all CSU campuses.
  2. The specific lower division breadth/general education requirements of the campus to which they intend to transfer.

Students should consult a COS Counselor to determine which option is best suited for their educational objective.

Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC)

IGETC Certification

“Certification” means that College of the Sequoias has verified that a student has completed the lower division general education requirements for the University of California. Certification is important because without it students will be held to the general education requirements specific to the UC campus to which the student transfers. Courses from other colleges and universities may be considered for certification through a process called “pass along certification”:

  1. Courses taken at other California Community Colleges will be certified in the subject areas (AREA 1 – 6) approved by the institution where the courses were taken, and
  2. Courses taken at other regionally accredited colleges and universities will be certified only if the course is determined to be equivalent to a course on a California Community College IGETC Certification Pattern. Courses deemed equivalent would be certified in the subject areas in which the equivalent CCC courses have been approved.

IGETC Exceptions

IGETC is not accepted for Engineering majors and the following: Berkeley - College of Environmental Design, Chemistry, Natural Resources, and the Haas School of Business; Davis - all bachelor of science majors; Los Angeles – School of Applied Science; Riverside – College of Natural and Agricultural Sciences; San Diego – Eleanor Roosevelt College and Revelle College; Santa Cruz – Physical and Biological Sciences.
