Transfer Curricula

The large majority of SBCC courses have been reviewed and approved for transfer by four-year colleges and universities through formal articulation agreements. These courses apply to one or more General Education, lower division major and/or elective requirements. These transferable courses have University of California (UC) and/or California State University (CSU) designations in this Catalog. These same designations also appear in the Schedule of Credit Classes, which is published each semester.

Most majors at four-year colleges and universities require completion of one or more lower division courses as preparation for the upper division. Nearly all of these lower division requirements can be met through transferable SBCC courses. Students can complete four-year institution General Education requirements prior to transfer.

Articulation agreements, available in the Transfer Center, identify which courses apply to General Education and lower division requirements at four-year universities. Students can complete many of the lower division requirements for majors offered by UC, CSU or independent institutions, even if SBCC does not offer the major.

Students can qualify for transfer to a multitude of four-year majors not specifically offered at SBCC. Students should check the catalog of the college of intended transfer and meet with a counselor for additional information about major programs and requirements.

Articulation with Four-Year Institutions
To assist the student with transfer to four-year institutions, articulation agreements have been established with most California State Universities, University of California campuses and some independent California colleges and out-of-state institutions. These agreements define the courses at Santa Barbara City College that satisfy many lower division major requirements and General Education requirements at four-year institutions.

ASSIST Transfer Articulation Information
ASSIST is a computerized student transfer articulation information system that can be accessed over the World Wide Web. It displays reports of how California community college courses can be applied when transferred to California State Universities and University of California campuses.

ASSIST is the official repository of articulation for California's public colleges and universities, and therefore provides the most accurate and up-to-date information available about student transfer in California.

ASSIST may be accessed at www.assist.org.

Transfer Achievement Certificate
The Transfer Achievement Certificate is awarded to any student who has completed a minimum of 24 units at Santa Barbara City College prior to transfer and has presented a letter of acceptance from an accredited four-year college or university. An application must be submitted by the student to the SBCC Transfer Center.

UC Minimum Transfer Admission Requirements

I. Non-California Residents
The minimum admission requirements for nonresidents are very similar to those for residents. Please consult with the Admissions Office at one of the University campuses for details. In all cases, however, nonresidents must have a minimum grade point average of 2.8 or higher in all UC transferable college coursework.

II. California Residents
Students who were not eligible for admission to the University when they graduated from high school because they did not meet the Scholarship Requirement must:
1. Complete 60 semester units or 90 quarter units of UC transferable college credit with a grade point average of at least 2.4 (no more than 14 semester/21 quarter units may be taken Credit/No Credit).
2. Complete the following course pattern requirements, earning a grade of C or better in each course:
• Two transferable college courses (3 semester or 4-5 quarter units each) in English composition, and
• One transferable college course (3 semester or 4-5 quarter units) in mathematical concepts and quantitative reasoning, and
• Four transferable college courses (3 semester or 4-5 quarter units each) chosen from at least two of the following subject areas: the arts and humanities, the social and behavioral sciences, and the physical and biological sciences.

Students who were eligible for admission to the university when they graduated from high school - meaning they satisfied the Subject, Scholarship and Examination Requirements, or were identified by the University during their senior year as eligible in the local context - they are eligible if they have a C (2.0) average in their transferable college coursework. Students who met the Scholarship Requirement in high school but did not satisfy the Subject Requirement must take transferable college courses in the missing subjects, earn a C or better in each required course and have an overall C (2.0) average in all transferable coursework to be eligible to transfer. See a counselor for more information.

The average GPA varies widely by campus and by major. Consult with your counselor or a UC campus representative to learn about the GPA that may be required for admission to particular campuses and majors.

UC Transferable Courses
Santa Barbara City College's UC Transferable Course
Agreement (TCA) is available online at www.assist.org. Students may also visit the Transfer Center or the Counseling Center to obtain a current list of transferable courses to the University of California. In addition, the transferability of each course is indicated immediately after the course title and unit information listed in the department/course descriptions section of this catalog.

CSU Minimum Transfer Admission Requirements
A Santa Barbara City college student who is planning to transfer to one of the campuses of the CSU system can qualify for admission by meeting the following requirements:

Lower-Division Transfer Admission Requirements (1 to 59 semester units)

Many campuses must now restrict enrollment of lower division transfer students due to heavy enrollment pressure. California residents are eligible for admission with fewer than 60 transferable semester units (90 quarter units) if they:
• Have a college grade point average of 2.0 or better in all transferable college units attempted.
• Are in good standing at the last college or university attended, i.e., they are eligible to re-enroll.
• Meet the admission requirements for a first-time freshman or have successfully completed necessary courses to make up the deficiencies you had in high school if you did not complete the 15-unit pattern of college preparatory subjects.
• Meet the eligibility index required of a freshman.

Some campuses may require lower-division transfer students to have completed English composition and General Education mathematics prior to transfer. Contact your campus of choice to determine whether there are admission limits on the number of lower-division transfer students. Note: Students who completed college units before they graduated from high school or during the summer between high school graduation and CSU enrollment are considered first-time freshmen and must meet those admission requirements.

Upper-Division Transfer Admission Requirements (60 to 70 semester units)
You are eligible for admission with 60 or more transferable semester units (90 quarter units) if you:
• Have a college grade point average of 2.0 or better (2.4 for non-California residents) in all transferable college units attempted.
• Are in good standing at the last college or university attended, i.e., you are eligible to re-enroll.
• Have completed or will complete prior to transfer at least 30 semester units (45 quarter units) of courses equivalent to General Education requirements with a grade of C or better. The 30 units must include all of the General Education requirements in communication in the English language (English composition, oral communication and critical thinking) and at least one course of at least 3 semester units (4 quarter units) required in college-level mathematics.

CSU Transferable Courses
Santa Barbara City College's CSU baccalaureate list of transferable courses is available online at www.assist.org. Students may also visit the Transfer Center or the Counseling Center to obtain a current list of transferable courses to the California State University. In addition, the transferability of each course is indicated immediately after the course title and unit information listed in the department/course descriptions section of this Catalog.

Lower-Division Transfer Pattern (LDTP)
The Lower-Division Transfer Pattern (LDTP) project, sponsored by the California State University (CSU) and supported by the California Community Colleges, presents potential transfer students with the most direct path to a bachelor's degree in the CSU system. The LDTP project provides a set of "road maps" for students to follow that will ensure appropriate academic preparation and that will decrease time to graduation once LDTP students enter the CSU. Students may enter into an LDTP agreement up to the time they have completed 45 transferable units. Students who elect to follow the LDTP option will receive the highest priority for admission to a CSU campus.

"Highest priority for admission" is defined as a written guarantee of admission to a particular CSU campus and major, and it goes into effect when both the student and the CSU campus ratify an LDTP agreement. The guarantee is subject both to satisfactory completion of the agreement requirements and to the campus's ability to accommodate the student. Students will be asked to complete successfully a specified set of General Education courses and major courses that will be common to all CSU campuses offering that major, and they will be asked to complete successfully an additional set of courses identified by the particular CSU campus named in the LDTP agreement. The coursework in the systemwide and campus-specific LDTP pattern will total at least 60 units, the number needed to transfer to CSU as an upper-division student.

Through CSUMentor and ASSIST, students and counselors will be able to find road maps detailing coursework preparation by CSU campus and major.

General Education Patterns for Transfer
Santa Barbara City College students have several options to complete a General Education pattern prior to transfer:
I. Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC)
II. California State University General Education Breadth Pattern
III. Campus-specific General Education Pattern

I. Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC)
The IGETC is a pattern of courses that community college students can use to satisfy lower division General Education/graduation requirements at any California State University (CSU) or University of California (UC) campus. Students should contact the Transfer Center for a list of selected California private universities that also accept IGETC for completion of General Education requirements.
Students should be aware that completion of the IGETC is not an admission requirement for transfer to a 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. Students may find it better to take courses fulfilling CSU's General Education/breadth requirements or those of a particular UC campus.
Students who are pursuing majors that require extensive lower-division preparation for admission to the major (such as Engineering or other Sciences) should not use IGETC. See the section entitled IGETC exceptions for instances where IGETC is not an acceptable pattern for General Education.

Certification
For certification, IGETC must be completed prior to transfer. Certification of these units is not automatic and must be requested at the SBCC Transfer Center (Student Services 140) after the student completes all of the IGETC requirements. Certification will not be made when course are still in progress or before grades are known. Certification of IGETC is the responsibility of the last California community college a student attends prior to transfer. Students must attach copies of their transcripts from other colleges to their request for IGETC certification.

IGETC After Transfer Certification
It is expected that all students using IGETC as their General Education pattern will have completed it prior to transfer. However, partial certification may be requested if severe hardship (MUST be documented) prevented the student from completing all required courses. Hardship may be determined to be: (1) accident or illness in the FINAL semester at SBCC; (2) work schedule changes in the FINAL semester at SBCC; (3) course cancellation by the college in the FINAL semester; (4) documented counselor error. Area 1 and Area 2 CANNOT be completed after transfer. If any of the above exceptions or situations applies to your academic record, please consult with a SBCC academic counselor for more information.

IGETC Exceptions
Students with a substantial amount of coursework from institutions outside the United States should consult with a counselor to determine whether they should complete the IGETC or the lower division breadth/General Education requirements at the campus they plan to attend. UC, Berkeley - The Colleges of Engineering, Environmental Design and Chemistry, and the Haas School of Business have extensive, prescribed major prerequisites. Moreover, the IGETC requirements generally exceed the college-specific breadth requirements (but do not supersede the major requirements). In general, the IGETC is not appropriate preparation for majors in these colleges. Although the IGETC satisfies breadth requirements for most majors in the College of Natural Resources, specific lower division major requirements must still be satisfied; check with the College or visit the ASSIST Web site (www.assist.org) for more information;

UC, Davis - Anyone preparing for a bachelor of science is advised not to pursue the IGETC, and instead to concentrate on major-specific preparatory work; UC, Los Angeles - The Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science does not accept IGETC; UC, Merced - The Schools of Engineering and Natural Sciences do not recommend the IGETC; UC, Riverside - The Marlan and Rosemary Bourns College of Engineering and the College of Natural and Agricultural Sciences do not accept IGETC, although any courses taken to satisfy the IGETC may be applied toward the college's breadth pattern; UC, San Diego - The IGETC is accepted at John Muir, Earl Warren, Thurgood Marshall and Sixth colleges only. Students completing the IGETC are welcomed at Eleanor Roosevelt and Revelle Colleges; however, they must also fulfill the specific General Education requirements of those colleges. At UCSD, all majors are available to students in each college, so students who choose the IGETC will not be restricted in their choice of major as a result; UC, Santa Barbara - Transfer students in the College of Letters and Science and the College of Creative Studies may use the IGETC to substitute for General Education requirements. Transfer students in the College of Engineering may also use the IGTC to substitute for General Education requirements. In addition to General Education, all students in the College of Engineering are required to complete a depth requirement. Students who wish to satisfy the depth requirement prior to transfer must complete a year-long sequence in the history of world civilization, history of Western civilization, history of Western philosophy or history of Western art. Students may want to choose courses for the IGETC that will concurrently satisfy the depth requirement. Students may also complete the depth requirement with upper division coursework after transferring; UC, Santa Cruz - Transfer students intending to pursue any major in the physical and biological sciences or the Jack Baskin School of Engineering should not follow IGETC because it will not provide them with enough lower division preparation for their majors.

Grades for IGETC
All courses in the IGETC must be completed with a "CR" (Credit equivalent to a "C" or better) or grade of "C" or better.

Admission Requirements
Completion of IGETC does not necessarily constitute meeting admissions requirements. However, course work for clearing high school subject omissions may count for IGETC if those courses appear on the IGETC list at the time they were taken.

Double Counting
Even though a course may be listed in more than one area on IGETC, a course may only be counted in one area. UC will allow requirements completed as preparation for the major to be used in the IGETC wherever they appear.

UCSB Ethnicity Requirement
Completion of IGETC overrides the need for an ethnicity course at UCSB.

American Institutions Requirement for UCSB
UCSB is one of the UC campuses that require a college-level AIR course. Current courses at SBCC which satisfy UCSB's AIR requirements are: Administration of Justice 101; Art 106; Asian American Studies 101, 102; Black Studies 101, 102, 103; Chicano Studies 101, 102, 103; English 225, 225GB, 226, 226HR; Environmental Studies 112; Ethnic Studies 101, 101HR,107; History 100, 101, 102, 102HR, 105HR (before Fall 03), 109, 110, 111, 112, 114, 114HR; Native American Studies 101, 102, 103; Political Science 101, 104, 106HR, 151, 151HR; Sociology 109. Any of these courses may be used to meet UCSB's American Institutions Requirement, as well as a requirement for IGETC.

Quarter Units vs. Semester Units
Students with both quarter and semester unit course work may find it difficult to combine the two in order to complete the required number of units. Additional course work may be necessary in order to complete the required number of courses or units in certain IGETC areas.

Courses Completed at Other Institutions
Courses completed at any regionally-accredited college can be used. However, the majority of courses used to complete IGETC requirements must be taken at a California community college. Course work from other California community colleges will be applied in the IGETC category listed by that campus. Courses must have been on that college's IGETC list when the course was taken. Check the ASSIST website at www.assist.org for IGETC-approved courses from California community colleges. Students transferring from other than a California community college may have courses certified as equivalent to SBCC courses if an equivalent course is taught at SBCC. Such courses would be placed in the same IGETC category as the equivalent SBCC course. There are some restrictions about using courses from a CSU or UC to fulfill IGETC.

Courses Taken at Foreign Institutions
These courses will not be permitted for certification on the IGETC.

Advanced Placement (AP) Scores
AP scores of 3, 4 or 5 can be used to satisfy any IGETC subject area except the Critical Thinking/English Composition or the Oral Communication requirements (Area 1B & C). However, a minimum AP score of 4 is required to meet Area 1 Group A - English Composition. Each AP score can only be used as one course. The AP course must have been evaluated and approved by SBCC faculty. A list of faculty-approved Advanced Placement scores and equivalent courses are available in the current SBCC catalog. More than one AP score can be used in each area except Area 1. Students should be aware that college courses taken prior to or after enrolling at UC might duplicate the content of AP exams. In these cases, the university might not award credit for both the course and the AP exam.

Proficiency in a Language Other Than English
Verification of this requirement will be based on official records (either high school or college) indicating completion of course work (with grades of "C" or better) equivalent to two years in high school of the same foreign language. Students can also meet this requirement by providing evidence of AP scores of 3 or more or by earning a minimum score of 550 on the College Board Achievement Test.

6 semester units, one course from Group 1 and one course from Group 2. The combination of History 101 and 102 [or 102HR], may also satisfy this requirement but ONLY if both courses were completed before Fall 2004.
Group 1: Asian American Studies 101; Black Studies 101, 102 (before Fall 04); Chicano Studies 101; Ethnic Studies 101, 101HR; History 100, 101, 102, 102HR, 105HR (before Fall 03), 110, 114, 114HR; Native American Studies 101
Group 2: Political Science 101, 104, 106HR (before Fall 04)

II. California State University General Education Breadth
The CSU General Education Breadth is a pattern of courses that community college students can use to satisfy lower division general/graduation requirements at any California State University (CSU) campus. Completion of these courses is not required for admission to CSU. However, students who do not complete all the lower division G.E. requirements will not be "fully certified." As a result, these students will be subject to additional G.E. requirements after transfer.

Certification
Certification of the CSU GE Breadth pattern is not automatic and must be requested at the SBCC Transfer Center (Student Services 140) after the student's last semester in attendance at SBCC.
Certification will not be made when courses are still in progress or before grades are known. Coursework completed at other regionally-accredited two or four-year colleges will be used in the CSU certification process. Students must attach copies of their transcripts from other colleges to their request for
CSU certification.
