Articulation & Transfer

articulation transfer 450x300The CCC Technology Center facilitates several technology projects that support seamless transfer for students moving on from a California community college to a four-year institution.

Curriculum Inventory (COCI)

Chancellor's Office Curriculum Inventory (COCI) serves as the central database for all California Community Colleges (CCC) course information. Colleges use COCI to submit new or notably changed courses and programs for approval. The application uses unique Course Control Numbers to identify and track course information.

COCI provides transparent, role-based workflows to assist in regulatory and policy planning. The system also supports efforts like the CCC MyPath project, as well as educational planning and career and program guidance.

Course Identification (C-ID)

The Course Identification Numbering Systems known as C-ID helps colleges simplify the access and sharing of information pertaining to transfer and articulation.

By identifying and organizing transfer-relevant courses, C-ID eases staff workloads and removes a barrier to student success. The system also serves as a hub for articulation agreements between California schools, and across statewide systems.

The C-ID application supports the Education Planning Initiative by providing information on how courses articulate within the CCC and CSU/UC systems.

Since 2008, eTranscript California has eased the transfer process by providing fast and easy access to required records. eTranscript California also ensures that transcripts meet the California Electronic Transcript Standard — a statewide format recognized by the CSU and UC systems.

The exchange supports the work of the Student Success Act of 2012 (SB1456), the "Second Chance" initiative (AB1056), and the CCC Education Planning Initiative.
