Handbook of California Articulation Policies and Procedures (2001 Edition).
Academic Senate for California Community Colleges, Sacramento.
This handbook was written in order to assist Articulation Officers and others involved in the articulation process in California institutions of higher education. It is intended to be a guideline and comprehensive resource of articulation policies and practices. In California there are four postsecondary educational segments comprised of: (1) Ten campuses of the University of California providing undergraduate and graduate programs through the doctorate, as well as professional schools; (2) 23 main campuses of the California State University providing undergraduate and graduate programs through the Master's Degree; (3) 108 California Community Colleges whose dual missions are to provide vocational education, and the lower division preparation for transfer to four-year colleges and universities; and (4) Approximately 90 degree-granting independent colleges and universities. Course articulation agreements between California's two-year and four-year institutions are classified into the following areas: (1) Courses Accepted for Baccalaureate Credit; (2) Transferable Credit Agreements; (3) General Education-Breadth Agreements; (4) Course-to-Course Agreements; and (5) Lower-Division Major Preparation Agreements. The Handbook is divided into chapters that describe affiliated or associated organizations and define course articulation agreements. The document also offers a chapter for each educational segment, and includes a general model for that segment's articulation process. Agreements, guidelines, course lists, and related Web site links are appended. (NB)
