This is an important issue that requires your careful attention. You should discuss your transfer goals with a community college counselor or adviser. If you know which four-year university you plan to attend, you should contact them and ask for their catalog.

Community college officials work closely with officials from California State Universities and Universities of California. In many instances, they have worked out articulation agreements, at certain colleges, in certain majors, that community college students can follow to ensure that they are enrolling in appropriate courses. Always work with a community college counselor or adviser!

You can also find transfer information at http://www.assist.org

Since many community college students are unsure of majors and unsure about which transfer university they plan to attend, both the California State University system and the University of California system have developed transfer plans that transfer students can follow to ensure that they are completing required general education course work. If you plan to transfer to a California State University, you can follow the Pattern of General Education for California State University Transfer, available in your college's counseling center. However, CSU campuses may have different 'major' requirements. You should discuss your major with a community college counselor or adviser.
