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. Students with external coursework must submit official transcripts from all other colleges attended to COS and meet with a counselor to file an External Credit Petition to have their external credit evaluated. Disclaimer: external coursework evaluation decisions only apply to COS degrees and general education and may not apply to other transfer institutions.
