Articulation & Equivalency: What Transfers?
Should you decide to transfer to a four-year university after earning your degree here at Shasta College, it is important you verify that the classes you are taking will count at the university of your choosing.
Shasta College courses numbered 1-99 are transferable to all CSU (California State University) campuses. If you plan to transfer to any other school outside of the CSU system, please make an appointment with a Shasta College counselor to verify that all the classes you are taking are transferable.
What is Articulation?
Articulation is the process of faculty review and evaluation to determine whether coursework completed at one institution will meet requirements for admission, transfer credit, general education and or major preparation at another institution. The purpose of articulation between institutions is to facilitate the process of enrolling students from high school or another institution to Shasta College and from Shasta College to four-year institutions. Completing an articulated course, for a specific major or for general education, allows students to satisfy a university admission and/or graduation requirement while at Shasta College prior to transferring. Shasta College shall strive to eliminate barriers to transfer for credit and to support student transitions from one institution to another.
Shasta College’s Articulation Officer coordinates activities to develop and maintain articulation agreements with other institutions. Articulation activities with college and universities are guided by the procedures outlined in the current edition of the California Articulation Policies and Procedures Handbook Published by the California Intersegmental Articulation Council, a professional organization of California College and university articulation officers.
Many colleges have articulation agreements, which define which courses they consider comparable. We have articulation agreements with University of California (UC), California State University (CSU), and some accredited private and out-of-state colleges.

- What courses meet the Ethnic Studies requirement?
- ETHS 1- Introduction to Ethnic Studies
This course takes an interdisciplinary approach to the study of race and ethnicity in the United States. It examines social justice movements in relation to ethnic and racial groups in the United States to provide a basis for a better understanding of the socioeconomic, cultural, and political conditions among key social groups including, but not limited to, Native Americans, African Americans, Asian Americans, and Latina/o Americans. This course examines the systemic nature of racial/ethnic oppression through an examination of key concepts including racialization and ethnocentrism, with a specific focus on the persistence of white supremacy. Using an anti-racist framework, the course will examine historical and contemporary social movements dedicated to the decolonization of social institutions, resistance, and social justice. This course may be offered in a distance education format. (CSU/UC transferable).
- ETHS 5- Introduction to Asian American Studies
This course critically examines Asian American histories and contemporary experiences from diverse ethnic perspectives within Asian America: Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Filipinx, Hmong, Mien, Laotian, Vietnamese, Cambodian, Thai, Asian Indian, and Native Hawaiian. We will analyze scholarly, literary, and visual resources to understand how the interdisciplinary field of Asian American Studies confronts issues such as immigration, racialization, racism, exclusion, political and social activism, assimilation, and community-building. The term “Asian American” can often be misleading, inclusive, exclusive, and overwhelmingly broad. Because of this, the course pays particular attention to personal narratives as we explore questions of race, class, war, imperialism, gender, sexuality, culture, memory, and agency. This course may be offered in a distance education format. (CSU/UC transferable).
- ETHS 11- Intersectionality of Race, Ethnicity, and Health
This course introduces the student to the field of Ethnic Studies with a focus on the intersectionality of race, ethnicity, and health. The course explores such core concepts as colonization, racialization, the structures of racism, and how health is impacted by structural racism. The core concepts are explored by examining their impacts on African American and Native American communities. This course may be offered in a distance education format. (CSU/UC transferable)
