Articulation

Articulation is the process that links the curriculum between community colleges and universities so that students can transfer from a community college to a university without experiencing a delay or duplication of coursework. Articulated courses at College of the Siskiyous are those that are identified by a university as equivalent or comparable to courses taught on a university campus. Completing an articulated course, for a specific major or for general education, enables students to satisfy a university admission and/or graduation requirement while at College of the Siskiyous prior to transferring.

College of the Siskiyous has articulation agreements with the University of California (UC), the California State University (CSU), and some private universities. Articulation agreements between College of the Siskiyous and California public universities are listed at www.assist.org.
