Does the course I took at the community college transfer to CI?

Most developmental/remedial mathematics courses are not CSU transferable. Transferability depends on the course numbering system as the community college determines. It is recommended you check ASSIST.ORG to determine CSU transferability.

If a course is not CSU transferable, the units will not count towards graduation, however, the content may satisfy the Remedial Mathematics requirement.

For example: MATH V03 from Ventura College, is not CSU transferable, but it is an approved course that satisfy the Remedial Mathematics requirement.

Can I take a college level math course to meet Remedial Math requirement?

The Remedial Mathematics requirement can only be satisfied by completing MATH 94 & MATH 95.

For example, you cannot take MATH 105 (Pre-Calculus) to satisfy the Remedial Math requirement.

If you have taken a college-level mathematics course, it will not automatically satisfy the Remedial Mathematics requirement.
