This section is concerned with the processes and policies for establishing agreements on lower-division courses of other institutions that may be used in lieu of CSULB lower-division courses. This process is called "articulation." Articulation is mandated among Title 5 institutions to minimize the loss of academic credit when a student transfers from one institution to another, principally from community colleges to four-year institutions.
The articulation process provides a structure wherein the faculty of other accredited colleges and universities and of CSULB are able to ensure a reasonable transferability of courses from one institution to another. Of particular concern is the transfer of lower-division courses from community colleges to CSULB, especially those lower-division courses required in the baccalaureate programs. Articulation is based on the following premises:
The articulation process is carried out by the university articulation coordinator, the college/department articulation reviewers, and the associate deans.
