BCC’s Articulation Officer’s primary role is to be a resource for faculty when developing new or updating/revising transferable courses. The Articulation officer initiates faculty approved articulation proposals for the General Education (G.E.) patterns for transfer: the CSU-GE Breadth Requirements (California State University-General Education) and the UC GE (IGETC) Breadth Requirements (Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum) as well as proposing BCC courses for the Associate (AA/AS) Degree General Education Requirements. Faculty-initiated articulation proposals also include course-to-course and major articulation agreements with individual CSUs, UCs, and California Private/Independent Colleges and Universities.
BCC’s 15 new Associate Degrees for Transfer (ADTs) coordinate well with the General Education requirements contained in
- BCC’s Associate Degree GE Requirements
- CSU GE Breadth Requirements
- IGETC Requirements
- UC Berkeley Breadth Requirements
As you navigate through the Articulation Program website, you will find additional information, e.g. Calendar with important Articulation Deadlines, Articulation Information, Curriculum Resources, web links for ASSIST & ASSIST demos, etc.
Benefits of Articulation for Students
- Eases transition from one educational level to another
- Eliminates coursework duplication;
- Reduces educational expenses;
- Offers incentives to continue education at a more advanced level; and
- Encourages educational goal setting, the development of a SEP (Student Educational Plan) to achieve those goals.
The final responsibility for successfully achieving an educational goal rests with the student. Information online is designed to be helpful; however, this information changes frequently. It is recommended that students consult a counselor to confirm an student educational plan (SEP) by appointment to ensure you know how to use and understand resources available appropriately. You can visit a BCC Counselor for questions regarding articulation and transfer, or phone the BCC Counseling Department at (510) 981-5036 for more information. Please see the BCC Counseling Department website for hours, drop-in visits, appointments, and more details.
