This document is the seventh edition of the California Articulation Number (CAN) System guide, which was revised in 2002. Some of CAN's goals are to help community college students transfer smoothly to four year universities, promote the development of a common method of course identification within each segment of public postsecondary education, and help identify courses with comparable content so that certain competencies can be expected upon completion of such courses. The document gives an overview of CAN and its goals for the future. The report is divided into the following chapters: (1) what is course articulation?; (2) what is CAN?; (3) how to take a CAN course; (4) how does CAN work?; (5) steps to participate in CAN; (6) how to prepare and submit a CAN articulation report?; and (7) what is next for CAN. The document contains fourteen appendices which provides information on approved list of courses in CAN, CAN course prefixes, glossary of CAN terms, CAN institutional statement of commitment, diverse numbering of qualified courses identified by CAN, and sample major preparation agreements between two year and four year institutions and between four year and four year institutions. Contains numerous tables and diagrams throughout report. (MZ)
