Articulation Officer



  • Today’s presentation will cover articulation tips from the perspective of a UC campus with focus on UC San Diego & UC Santa Cruz.

  • Each UC has unique practices for processing articulation.

  • Contact the UC campus A.O. to inquire about best practices for that UC.

Assist tips similarities differences among ucs

ASSIST: Tips, Similarities & Differences Among UCs

  • Articulation by Major: All UCs

  • Articulation by Department: 7 UCs

    • Excluding UCI, UCLA

    • Articulation for GE: 7 UCs

    • Excluding UCLA, UCSD, UCI (selected CCCs)

    • UC San Diego: once a course-to-course agreement is established, that agreement is valid wherever the course is used.

Assist tips similarities differences among ucs1

ASSIST: Tips, Similarities & Differences Among UCs

  • Course Prefixes

    • At two UCs, course prefixes in UC Catalogs may differ from those on ASSIST.

    • UCD: ASSIST Prefix = Banner System

      • AAS (catalog); AF-AMST (ASSIST)

    • UCSC: ASSIST Prefix = Class Schedule

    • Department Names

      • ASSIST departments may not always reflect official UC campus departments.

Assist tips similarities differences among ucs2

ASSIST: Tips, Similarities & Differences Among UCs

  • UC Campus Majors

  • Differing degrees and emphases may be displayed on ASSIST as separate majors.

  • UCSD: Psychology – degrees (emphases)

    • B.A. & B.S.

Assist tips similarities differences among ucs3

ASSIST: Tips, Similarities & Differences Among UCs

  • UC Professional Programs on ASSIST

Igetc vs uc campus specific ge

IGETC vs. UC Campus-Specific GE

  • IGETC and UC campus GE are distinct and separate patterns.

    • Some CCC IGETC-certified courses may also satisfy UC GE patterns.

    • UC campus GE patterns are unique.

    • UC campus practices for seeking campus GE articulation vary.

Catalog rights

Catalog Rights

  • Catalog rights differ at each UC.

  • Catalog rights may differ among UC colleges.

Ap ib articulation

AP / IB Articulation

  • AP/IB score credit is the same across UCs:

    • UC transferable units, eligibility, IGETC

  • AP/IB course-to-course articulation and satisfaction of requirements vary per UC.

  • Finding UC AP/IB information:

    • UCD, UCM: ASSIST links to UC Campus Catalog

    • UCI, UCSD, UCSB: Check the UC Campus Catalog

    • UCR: Modifying agreements TBD

    • UCSC: AP/IB under ASSIST ‘By Major’

    • UCB, UCLA: AP on ASSIST for select majors only

Uc curriculum update process

UC Curriculum Update Process

  • CCCs update quarterly.

  • UCs update annually.

  • UCs base curriculum changes on their catalogs, catalog supplements and varied internal processes.

Publishing uc agreements

Publishing UC Agreements


  • publish July through January (typically).

  • do not change their side of the agreement within academic year – with rare exception.

  • do not sever articulation in an academic year when students may be disadvantaged.

  • add articulation throughout the year.

  • obtain CCC course additions, deletions and changes from ASSIST reports.

  • maintain and manipulate CCC course data when establishing agreements on ASSIST.

Uc annual update reports

UC Annual Update Reports

  • UCs provide an annual summary of their updates to majors and curriculum changes.

  • UCSD: provides report October.

    • Single report includes Jacobs Engineering and All Majors

    • UCSD report provides updates on campus information and changes to campus majors as well as minors.

Uc a o responsibilities

Best practices for submitting uc articulation proposals

Best Practices for Submitting UC Articulation Proposals

  • ASSIST-Next Generation proposes a new tracking system for the future.

  • Current best practices for UCSD:

    • Submit via email.

    • Provide CCC course outlines in PDF.

    • Group by dept.; avoid long requests.

    • Propose a specific course-to-course agreement.

    • Checklist: Transferable? Already articulated? Previously requested?

Reasons uc faculty request additional documentation

Reasons UC Faculty Request Additional Documentation

  • Details not found in the COR

  • No indication of time spent on specific topics

    • including lab topics and lab time spent

  • Missing types of assignments for specific topics

  • Criteria for evaluation, especially writing assignments are unspecified

  • Textbooks and required reading unknown

  • Subject-specific information lacking in the course objectives and student learning outcomes

Contacting uc faculty depts

Contacting UC Faculty & Depts.

  • Direct all articulation requests through A.O.s

  • Contact the UC A.O. first before making inquires to UC campus faculty/departments.

  • UC A.O.s may work with specific department liaisons who work with multiple faculty.

  • UC department faculty/staff may not be as familiar with articulation protocol.

  • UC campus departments and UC catalogs may focus on native students vs. transfer student criteria and protocol…use caution.

Timing reminders

Timing / Reminders

  • UC faculty sabbaticals, teaching, research and travel schedules may affect the time needed to process articulation proposals.

  • Varied A.O. responsibilities impact processing.

  • CCC A.O.s are encouraged to track UC requests to avoid duplicate requests.

  • Contact the UC campus A.O. when response time seems unusually extended.

  • UCSD: Provides an email to the CCC A.O. with articulation outcome.
