Sectors, Pathways & Programs...OH MY!

  • Industry Sectors

    • 15 as outlined by CA and grouped by commonalities

    • Knowledge and skills as stated by industry

  • Career Pathways

    • Knowledge and skills as stated by education

    • Sequential courses in a program of study

  • Programs of Study…a comprehensive picture

    • Courses in years 9-14

    • Transitional opportunities – Credit by Exam, Articulation, etc

    • Work Based learning, mentor, job shadows

    • Concurrent Enrollment and/or Dual Enrollment

    • Options at the Community College

What can students do at cc
What can students do at CC?

  • Certificates

    • Little to no General Education required

    • 12-17 Units = skill certificate

    • 18+ units = Achievement Certificate

  • Associate of Science Degree (AS)

    • Often 18+ units of major coursework

    • +/- 20 units of General Education

  • Associate of Science for Transfer (AS-T)

    • Units for major courses varies

    • 37-40 units of General Education

      • CSU, UC, IGETC

Aa t as t or aa as what

  • SB1440 –

    • guaranteed admission to a CSU campus for AA-T/AS-T completors.

    • Limited to 60 units at CC & 60 units at CSU.

    • Students are admitted with junior standing

    • AB 2302 requires that the California Community Colleges work collaboratively with the CSU to inform students and the general public about this new opportunity and encourages the University of California to examine what it would take to join in this new transfer reform effort. 

    • Local Degrees that are compliant to the SB1440 are labeled AA-T or AS-T, to indicate that they are “transfer” degrees.

  • Goal: increase CCC transfers with associate degrees

  • Increase number of associate degrees awarded

  • Reduce units/cost before & after transfer

  • Smoother path to transfer to a CSU

  • A guarantee at CSU

What is c id
What is C-ID?

  • Faculty-driven system

  • Assigns numbers to transfer courses

    • Each C-ID number identifies a lower-division, transferable course commonly articulated between the CCC and CSU/UC

    • C-ID number ties a course to a specific course “descriptor” that was developed by intersegmental discipline faculty and reviewed statewide.

    • C-ID descriptor also provides information for ongoing curriculum development and revision of lower division courses.

  • Individual college courses are compared to the minimum requirements set by these descriptors. Any community college course that bears the C-ID supranumber conveys that faculty have determined it meets the published course content, rigor, and student learning outcomes.

  • Any other course elsewhere, bearing the same number will be accepted by the institution. 

  • 346 approved descriptors and 28 draft descriptors (
