 General Information for Transfer


The information below has been compiled to help Los Angeles City College students who intend to transfer to a four-year college or university.

Students who plan to earn a Bachelor degree should take a pattern of courses designed to complete the lower division preparation for their major and the general education. There are several options for completing General Education requirements.

Los Angeles City College can provide the lower division preparation for most majors at many of the California four-year public colleges and universities and select private universities.

For purposes of classification, students who are paralleling the work of four-year colleges and universities are indicated as transfer students.

Three principal kinds of requirements must be met in order to attain full junior standing at California public universities or other institutions of higher education maintaining equivalent standards. They are as follows:

1. Completion of the specific General Education requirements for junior standing. For the University of California (UC), students should complete the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) requirements. For California State University (CSU), students should complete the CSU General Education certification pattern. Students who are undecided regarding choice of transfer institution should complete the IGETC.

2. Completion of a minimum of 60 units to a maximum of 70 transferable semester units will permit a student to enter the university at the junior level.

3. Completion of the lower division major and minor course preparation. These vary according to the institution where students are seeking admissions.

4. Students transferring to private colleges or universities in California or other states must see a College Counselor or University Transfer Center staff for transfer requirements.

 

 Transfer of Career Education Classes

 

All Los Angeles City College transfer and occupational education courses are college level courses and may be applied toward graduation requirements for the Associate in Arts or Associate in Science degree. Following each course title in the Course Description section is a set of letters indicating the credit toward the Associate Degree or credit toward transfer to one of the California State University or the University of California campuses.

 

 Course Credit Value

 

The following abbreviations are used in course descriptions:

UC indicates the course is acceptable for unit credit at all campuses of the University of California.

CSU indicates the course is Baccalaureate transferable for unit credit at all campuses of the California State University.

A (Associate Degree level) indicates the course is acceptable toward fulfillment of the Associate in Arts or Associate in Science degree.

NDC (Non-degree Course) indicates a course that presents prerequisite or preparatory work for the Associate level courses. Credit is given toward computing the grade point average but may not be used toward graduation requirements.

NC (Non-credit Course) indicates the course is remedial and developmental to help students prepare for further advanced courses.

"Students are not likely to succeed in courses classified as UC or CSU transferable if they are not eligible to enroll in English 28 or higher." This statement identifies the indicated level of potential success a student may expect regarding a specified course.

 

Students intending to transfer to a college or university upon the completion of their studies at Los Angeles City College should consult the requirements of the institution of their choice and develop a "Student Educational Plan" with an LACC counselor.

 

 California Articulation Number (CAN) System

 

The California Articulation Number System (CAN) is a course identification system for common core lower-division transferable, major prep commonly taught on California Community College and CSU campuses. Colleges and universities that demonstrate common acceptance of courses through traditional agreements can qualify courses for CAN designations.

 

Courses with CAN designators are accepted by any other CAN participating institutions as being comparable to their courses with the same CAN designators to meet local requirements, even if the receiving university has not established an explicit traditional articulation agreement with particular California Community College. Please refer to www.cansystem.org for the most current CAN qualified courses for Los Angeles City College.

 

 The University of California (UC) System

 

The University of California (UC) system has nine campuses throughout the state. This catalog gives information concerning requirements for the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC), which transfers to all nine campuses.

 

For specific information regarding preparation for the colleges at the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA) (Letters and Science, School of the Arts, and School of Theatre, Film and Television, and School of Engineering) please see a counselor.

 

Information regarding preparation in the majors for most of the UC campuses is available from the Los Angeles City College Counseling Center. Major requirements have been articulated on a course-for-course basis to enable students to complete most of their lower division preparation at LACC.

 

TRANSFER REQUIREMENTS

(Advanced Standing Admission)

An "advanced standing" student is one who has been a registered student in another college or university or in college-level extension classes other than a summer session immediately following high school graduation. Advanced standing applicants may not disregard their college records and apply for admission as a freshman.

 

Students planning to transfer to a UC campus should discuss their transfer plans with College Counselor every semester they attend LACC, inasmuch as significant changes frequently occur in requirements, subsequent to the printing of this catalog, and during the life of this catalog.

 

ADVANCED STANDING ADMISSION

Requirements

Requirements for admission in advanced standing vary according to your high school record. LACC students planning to transfer to any UC campus are required to have an official copy of their high school transcript sent to the Admissions Office. UC requires an exact pattern of high school subjects.

 

If deficiencies in either subjects or grades exist, they can be made up with courses taken at LACC. A student who has not graduated from high school or who has not graduated but has passed the State Proficiency Exam or has a General Education Diploma (G.E.D.) may also make up subject and grade deficiencies at LACC. In many cases, these courses also will help satisfy the college breadth requirements. Students are expected to complete:

1. Basic Proficiency Level courses.

2. General Education requirements.

3. Major subject requirements.

 

Courses described in this catalog with UC in parentheses are transferable to the UC system. If you have attended and received credit from any four-year college or university, please consult with a College Counselor regarding admissibility to the UC.


 

 The California State University (CSU) System


Admission

Students intending to transfer to a California State University campus should plan a program to meet the graduation requirements of the specific institution which they plan to attend. Transfer admission eligibility is based on transferable college units or high school record and test score. Consult the catalog issued by the individual campus for a complete description of the curricula or with an LACC counselor.

 

Applicants who are California residents and who have completed 60 to 70 transferable semester units (90-105 quarter units) are eligible for admission if they:

A. Are in good standing at Los Angeles City College, and

B. Have achieved a 2.0 or better grade point average in all college units attempted (nonresidents, 2.4 or better)

Students entering must complete 9 units in English language course work and the mathematics requirement and additional units within the General Education certification pattern to equal 30 units of General Education. Students in pre-majors with a total of 40 or more units should consult with an LACC counselor regarding completion of the General Education subject requirement for admission to the California State University system.

 

Students with fewer than 56 transferable semester units (84 quarter units) completed are eligible for admission if they:

A. Are in good standing at Los Angeles City College and

B. Have achieved a 2.0 or better grade point average in all college units attempted, and were either

1. Eligible for admission as first-time freshmen or

2. Eligible for admission as first-time freshmen except for completion of the subject requirements and have removed deficiencies in those required college preparatory subjects with acceptable college work. Consult with a counselor regarding ways to fulfill the subject requirement deficiency.

Admission to a California State University campus does not guarantee admission to the major department or college on that campus.

 

Requirements For The Bachelor’s Degree

The degree requirements at a California State University campus consist, in general, of three parts: first, the General Education Requirements, which are required of all degree candidates; second, the Major Department Requirements, which are a part of the student field of specialization; and third electives. Students with high-unit majors should take electives after transfer.

 

These requirements are classified in two levels: Lower Division and Upper Division. Students may complete most of the lower division requirements in the major and all of the lower division in the general education pattern at Los Angeles City College.

 

 University of California (UC) & California State University (CSU)
 General Education Articulation Agreements

 

The California State University (CSU) delegates authority to Los Angeles City College to identify courses applicable towards the CSU curriculum:

1. Courses that transfer for Baccalaureate credit;

2. Courses that fulfill CSU lower division General Education-Breadth requirements;

3. Courses that fulfill the United States history, constitution and American ideals requirements.

Up to 39 or the 48 General Education-Breadth units required for the Baccalaureate degree can be transferred from Los Angeles City College. Students who are certified with 39 semester units of lower division General Education-Breadth units will be required to complete a minimum of 9 semester units of upper division General Education work after transfer. Students completing this pattern must complete the nine (9) units in Area A with a "C" grade or better in each course and a "C" grade or better in mathematics, Area B3. Students must also complete 30 units taken from Area B through Area E.

 

The California State University assigns a high priority to Los Angeles City College transfer students who have completed the first two years of their Baccalaureate program (60-70 units). Los Angeles City College students transferring with 60 units minimum enter at junior level standing and may enter their major upper division work if all prerequisites have been completed. Executive Order 595, General Education Requirements, Office of the Chancellor, California State University, establishes that all students must fulfill the requirements. Previous General Education requirements will not carry catalog rights after January 1994. IGETC units will be certified by the graduation clerks when verified by LACC Counselors. Pass Along will be honored from other community colleges for courses approved for the IGETC.

 

An alternative to the lower division requirements stated above is the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC). IGETC requires completion of a minimum of 37 semester units of lower division work with a "C" grade or better in each course completed. Students must complete all areas to become certified.

 

You must complete the IGETC before transferring. This is an all or none situation. (Completion and certification of the IGETC may not fulfill the Admissions Requirements for the UC or CSU.)

 

Completion of the IGETC will permit a student to transfer from Los Angeles City College to a campus in either the California State University or University of California system without the need, after transfer, to take additional lower-division General Education courses to satisfy the university General Education requirements.

 

Completion of the IGETC is not a requirement for transfer to CSU or UC, nor is it the only way to fulfill the lower-division General Education requirements of the CSU or UC prior to transfer. Depending on a student major and field of interest, the student may find it better to take courses fulfilling the CSU General Education requirements or those of the UC campus to which the student plans to transfer. Students pursuing majors that require extensive lower-division preparation (such as Engineering or Biology) may not find the IGETC option to be advantageous.
 

 Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC)
 Policy

 

Completion of all of the requirements in the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum will permit a student to transfer from Los Angeles City College to a campus in either the California State University or University of California system without the need, after transfer, to take additional lower-division, General Education courses to satisfy campus General Education requirements.

The course requirements for all areas must be completed before the IGETC can be certified. All courses must be completed with grades of “C” or better.

IGETC units will be certified by the graduation clerks when verified by LACC Counselors. Pass Along will be honored from other community colleges for courses approved for the IGETC.

You must complete the IGETC before transferring. This is an all or none situation. (Completion and certification of the IGETC may not fulfill the Admissions Requirements for the UC or CSU.)

 Independent California Colleges And Universities

 

California fully accredited independent colleges and universities provide a wide range of options at undergraduate, graduate and professional levels for students planning to continue their education beyond community college.
 

ADMISSION POLICIES

Students who transfer to independent colleges or universities find they are given academic credit for most, if not all, of their community college studies.

 

Virtually all institutions give full credit for General Education courses and usually other courses designated for transfer by the community college.

 

Articulation agreements for General Education requirements and some major requirements may be obtained from the LACC Counseling Center. The Center maintains information for BIOLA College; Claremont McKenna College; Cleveland Chiropractic College; Golden Gate University; Loyola University; Mount St. Mary’s University; Pepperdine University; the University of Southern California; and others.

 

Some colleges and universities stipulate that a certain number of units must be completed before considering eligibility for transfer. The requirements are outlined in the respective college catalogs. Please consult with a College Counselor or the academic advisor from the college or university visiting the Transfer Center.

 

Independent institutions are generous in awarding credit. They invite students to make an appointment with their Office of Admissions in order to discuss transfer opportunities on a personal basis.
