 Articulation Office

​The COS articulation office is focused on student access, equity, and success and on establishing pathways for students transferring to four-year colleges and universities through articulation agreements. Successful completion of an articulated course assures the student and the faculty that the student has taken the appropriate course, received the necessary instruction and preparation, and can be assured of similar outcomes at the 4-year institution.

​If you are a four-year university and would like to establish partnerships/agreements, please contact Mai, the Articulation & Transfer Officer at​.

If you are a COS faculty or student and have questions about our current articulation agreements or questions about, complete an Articulation request.

What is Articulation?
Articulation is the process of developing a formal, written agreement that identifies courses/sequences of courses completed at one institution that will meet requirements for admission, transfer credit, general education, and or major preparation at another institution. 

What transfers to other universities?
​Should you want to transfer to a four-year university after your time at COS​, you must verify that the classes will count at your chosen university, especially when the university is out-of-state or private. College of the Sequoias courses numbered 1-199 are transferable to all CSU (California State University) campuses. Courses numbered 1-99 are transferable to all UCs (University of California). Transferability of a course may be limited to only general education, major, and/or electives. Please make an appointment with a COS Counselor if you have any questions. 
What if I have credits/coursework from other colleges/universities?
​Students may use coursework completed at other institutions to fulfill program, general education, and/or elective unit requirements for the Associate Degree or certificate programs at COS. Please refer to the Transfer & External Credits Policy for more information.
