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’re taking will count at the university of your choosing.
Below is a list of resources that you can use to ensure you make the most of your degree and your time spent here.
Shasta College courses numbered 1-99 are transferable to all CSU 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 of the classes you’re 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. 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.
