Academic Catalogs


Some majors require or recommend introductory or prerequisite courses, most of which are offered in community colleges. These major requirements are described in CSU and UC campus catalogs. Most campuses have articulation agreements with several community colleges specifying coursework taken at California Community Colleges that can satisfy lower division requirements for the major. Check the articulation agreement to be sure the courses will be accepted toward the degree at the campus you plan to attend. Students can obtain articulation agreements for specific majors from a counselor, Transfer Center or on the Internet at ASSIST. ASSIST provides access to the most current articulation agreements between UC, CSU and California Community Colleges. ASSIST includes information about credit for CSU GE Breadth requirements, IGETC requirements, major preparation and transferable course agreements. Articulation agreements are updated throughout the year, so check ASSIST periodically to ensure that you have the most current information about transfer credit.


To get the most up-to-date major prep information go to ASSIST. ASSIST is the official repository of articulation for California’s public colleges and universities and provides the most accurate and up-to-date information about student transfer in California. ASSIST does not take the place of a counselor on the GWC campus. It is intended to help students and counselors work together to establish an appropriate path toward transferring from a public California community college to a public California university. Check ASSIST periodically for any changes regarding articulation. Check for new transferable courses, new general education courses, and new major preparation and transfer requirements.
