If a member of the CI Community has reason to believe that a student who resides in on-campus housing is missing, he or she shall immediately notify CI Police at 805-437-8444. CI Police will generate a missing person report and immediately initiate an investigation.

If the missing student is younger than 18 years of age and not an emancipated minor, the CI Police will notify the person’s custodial parent or legal guardian. Students living in on-campus housing may register a specific person to be contacted by CI Police in the event they are determined to be missing.

Transfer Course Information

Transfer credit is maintained by Records & Registration. Transferable courses are those designated for baccalaureate credit by the regionally accredited college or university offering the courses and accepted as such by the campus to which the applicant seeks admission. Transfer credit can be used to meet overall credit requirements and/or specific major/minor/GE courses. Students transferring from other accredited institutions must have all official transcripts evaluated by CI to determine the type and amount of credit awarded. Therefore, it is the student's responsibility to make sure CI has all current transcripts on file prior to the final graduation review process. Providing undergraduate students with an automated Degree Progress Report (DPR) through their student center in myCI, students are empowered to track their degree requirements and decide future course choices.

Degree Progress Report (DPR)

A DPR outlines general education, graduation, major and minor (if applicable) requirements. It is student specific and will display requirements you have met and requirements you have yet to meet using internal credit (CI courses) and external credit (transfer and test credit). When you have not met a requirement, the report will list course options that will meet the requirement. To ensure timely graduation, always work with your academic advisor as this report is only a guide. Review your transfer credit report for accuracy. Additional information can be found online at: http://www.csuci.edu/records-registration/progress_of_degree.htm

Questions should be directed to Records and Registration at 805-437-8500 or by email at records.registration@csuci.edu
