Articulation - n.
The act or the state of being jointed.

Articulation is the process by which community college courses are granted appropriate credit at CSU / UC campuses and private universities. Articulation is faculty and curriculum driven--specific to the community college, receiving University, and major—per transfer articulation agreements (TCA’s). We cannot determine that a course will satisfy transfer requirements based on the title alone, all of which is subject to the University conferring the degree.

The Articulation Office evaluates, oversees and maintains the college's repository of approved courses and credit by exam from other accredited institutions and agencies. Namely, how courses and exams from other colleges are accepted and can be applied for credit towards both local graduation and university transfer purposes. In accordance with applicable LACCD board rules, administrative regulations, California Educational Codes, Cal State, UC, and private university transfer guidelines, the Articulation Office provides a scaffold to assist counselors, faculty, school deans, Curriculum and Admissions to navigate course content and its credit applications and limitations.

The Articulation Office makes no guarantees, either express or implied, with respect to information available over the Internet from other colleges and is not responsible for any such inaccuracies or misrepresentation of information with respect to LACC courses, prerequisites, programs of study, and graduation requirements.

Transfer Certification

Effective July 1, 2018 ALL CSU and IGETC certifications will be completed by a counselor and signed off by the Articulation Office. Please see your counselor or the Transfer Center for information and guidelines:

  • All transcripts, AP scores, etc. used to complete certification need to be on file with Admissions.
  • Minimum of 12 units completed at LACC.
  • Please allow up to 2-3 business days for completion of CSU or IGETC certification, partial or full, to be reflected on your official transcript.
