Transfer Credit Information
Course to Course Transfer Equivalence
Student transferring from California Community Colleges and 4-year public institution may refer to articulation agreements on the ASSIST website to find CSU Channel Islands major course equivalencies for work completed. ASSIST also provides CSU General Education and IGETC certification lists as well as approved courses for the fulfillment for the American Institutions Requirement.
Agreements organized by Department contain equivalencies in course prefix order, i.e., all courses that articulate in the ART prefix, all courses that articulate in the BIO prefix, etc. Agreements organized by Major contain only those courses articulated in a specific major. New articulation agreements are being published on a continual basis in an effort to increase the amount of articulation to students and schools.
