Resources for Developing Curriculum
(For Instructors)

When developing a new course for transfer to the CSU or UC system, you must locate a similar course taught at a California public university at the lower division (called a "lower-division parallel course").

You need either:

A lower-division parallel course taught at a UC (allows course to have a transferable course number 1-99 and to transfer to both CSU and UC systems)

A lower-division parallel course taught at a CSU (allows course to have a transferable course number 1-99 and to tranfer to the CSU system) , OR

Three (3) California community college courses that are similar to our course and their courses transfer to either the UC or CSU system.

Below are resources for you as you do this work:

Example of documentation needed for lower-division parallel - send to Articulation Director

Course Numbering systems at CSU - course numbers vary widely - see link

Course Numbering systems at UC - lower division courses are all 1-99 only

General Education Guidelines - when developing a course to meet general ed:

Access Cabrillo's ASSIST agreements with UC and CSU

June, 2019 - ASSIST is currently posting 16-17 agreements and the later years' agreements will be rolled out over the next few months. You may only be able to view "department" articulation, but remember that major preparation courses are the most important courses for students. Development of transferable courses that meet major preparation requirements and/or general education requirements for students should be the priority.

ASSIST contains agreements with public 4-year institutions in California. In most cases, we have both course to course and major preparation agreements. These agreements can be useful when researching where curriculum development is most needed. The ASSIST Coordination site has developed a helpful demonstration on how to use ASSIST--please click here to take a look. The ASSIST site takes you through the lookup process but if you need assistance, please feel free to call Carolyn Jackson, Articulation Officer at X6272 or e-mail me at

FAQ's for Faculty - re: C-ID

WHY DON'T WE HAVE AN ADT DEGREE IN YOUR DISCIPLINE? In order for a TMC to be developed and result in an ADT degree, a minimum of four CSU's must have the major, and a minimum of 200 students per year must be transferring into that major. As of Fall, 2019, all the ADT's that meet that criteria have been developed.

OR, the college might not teach enough of the required courses on the TMC to be able to offer the degree;

OR, the college cannot offer the degree within the required 60 units maximum at Cabrillo.
