California Transfer Associate Degree Process
You can qualify for transfer to a CSU and earn an Associate's degree in specific majors at your community college simultaneously.
Prudent planning for courses at your community college or current institution is to look ahead at the course requirements for your intended major at the course catalog and/or the recommended progress with Major Academic Plans (MAPs). Keep in mind, these are recommendations, and not all courses listed are required for degree completion. Comparison to the course catalog is strongly recommended to determine full requirements. Most community college course catalogs list each course as either college transferable or not. Within California Community Colleges they often list if it will be accepted to the CSU, the system that Cal Poly Humboldt is a part of, for transfer credit. Sometimes community college courses, even if applicable to an associate's degree, may not be counted upon transfer. All college level courses passed are accepted for transfer. Courses being accepted for transfer credit does not automatically mean they will be accepted as equivalent courses or as substitutes. To determine how your courses might transfer and which substitutes, also known as articulations, will be met visit www.assist.org. You may also do a reverse search utilizing the above course catalog information.
