ASSIST is an online information system for student transfers that shows how course points earned at a California public college or university can be applied when transferred to another. ASSIST is the official repository of articulation information for California`s public colleges and universities and provides the most accurate and up-to-date information on transferring students to California. Assist is funded by the California legislature. ASSIST`s Board of Directors, composed of representatives of the various public segments of post-practical training, oversees the development and definition of assistance guidelines. The articulation from one course to another can be considered in three different ways: although California colleges and universities are prioritized in the articulation agreement, several agreements have been concluded for private and extra-state institutions in order to best meet the needs of our transfer students. View the Transfer Evaluation System (TES) to view each agreement. (The following PDF agreements are not included in TES.) To search for articulation, choose an academic year, choose Cal Poly (« California Polytechnic University, San Luis Obispo ») as the home institution, and a Community College from the Other Institutions drop-down menu. The major agreements contain useful transfer information and online resources, as well as the list of lower division courses that are relevant to this main subject. Articulation agreements developed with California Community Colleges, California State Universities or the University of California identify the corresponding Cal Poly Pomona course for a given transfer course.
Articulation agreements with public agencies in California are stored on the ASSISTANCE – www.assist.org website. The ASSISTANCE site also helps you determine if a California Community College course is transferred and if the course is « GE certified » (CSU approved for general education). By Prefix indicates the articulation of this specific subject prefix. For example, MATH for mathematics. To determine appropriate courses that meet the English composition, critical thinking and oral communication requirements listed in the Transfer Selection Guide, consult sbCC`s CSU GE or IGETC. Use the articulation agreement for the major to find the CPSLO course, which is listed in the transfer selection guide, and the corresponding SBCC course that meets the requirement. Students with non-national and/or four-year university courses should compare their catalog course descriptions with Cal Poly`s catalog to identify the corresponding content of those courses. Cal Poly is not able to evaluate transcripts prior to selection. It is highly recommended that all students meet with an SBCC Academic Counselor in your academic planning process for Cal Poly. Please note that when searching for a specific prefix joint, you should consider checking all associated prefixes. For example, a community math course might be articulated with a Cal Poly STAT course instead of a MATH course.
It is recommended to use all agreements related to the Cal Poly Catalog, which indicates the most recent program, and to the transfer selection criteria that indicate the current course lists necessary for competitive admission.. . .
