2014-2015 Catalog (PDF file)
The 2016-17 COS Catalog provides the information about the programs and courses we offer, and the guidelines for enrollment, financial aid, and student support services among other general information. COS is proud to announce that we offer many SB 1440 Transfer Degrees. These degrees are designed to provide a clear pathway to a CSU major and baccalaureate degree. Current and prospective students are encouraged to meet with a counselor to review their options for transfer and to develop an educational plan that best meets their goals and needs.
Effective Summer 2011, the course number system has been changed. Information about the new numbering and a list of old and new numbers can be found on the new course numbering document.
As a student, it is important to understand your "catalog rights". Students in continuous attendance may choose any catalog in effect during their attendance. Continuous attendance is defined as earning at least one-half unit of credit during consecutive academic years. An academic year starts in the fall semester and concludes at the end of the summer session. Once established at COS, continuous attendance may be maintained by earning credits at any regionally accredited institution. Students not in continuous attendance must select the catalog in effect at the time of the awarding of a certificate or an associate degree.
