CSU Transfer Requirements
For admission to the California State University system as a transfer student, students must complete 56 transferable * semester units (including at least 30 units in general education) with grades of "C" or better. Students who were ineligible for admission to CSU from high school must complete all of AREA A (Communication and Critical Thinking ) and AREA B4 (Mathematical Concepts and Quantitative Reasoning) with grades of "C" or better before transferring. All courses in AREA B4 have a prerequisite of intermediate algebra. The university will accept a maximum of 70 transferable units.
Students transferring to CSU have the option of completing either the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) of the California State University General Education Pattern Catalogs for all CSU campuses and copies of articulation agreements, which list the College of the Canyons courses that are equivalent to lower division courses offered at many CSU campuses, are available in the Transfer Center (Room A-101 Counseling Office).
While eligible students can be admitted to any campus in the CSU system, College of the Canyons has special transfer admission agreements with various campuses. Contact the Counseling office or Transfer Center to schedule an appointment to develop a transfer plan and/or to write a transfer admission agreement.
* Information on course transferability is included in course descriptions in the college catalog and Schedule of Classes.
