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.
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.
