The Comprehensive Articulation Agreement (CAA)
The CAA provides:
- Graduates of the AA or AS degree program will transfer 64 SHC and receive junior status;
- Students who transfer the 44 SHC general education core with at least a “C” in each course, shall be considered to have completed the institution wide and lower division requirements of the receiving institution, whether or not they earned the associate degree. Students completing the 44 SHC core may petition to receive the Transfer Core diploma;
- AA or AS graduates who have fulfilled the requirements of a pre-major option will be eligible to be considered for admission as juniors in the major. Pre-major requirements and recommendations are listed in the college catalog with appropriate degrees and;
- Students who are awarded a pre-major transfer degree will not be eligible to also receive the general AA (A10100) or AS (A10400) degree of the same discipline.
*Students who select a pre-major option will take all courses required of the articulation agreement for that major and will have sufficient flexibility to take some or all courses recommended of the pre-major agreement, as well as some or all local associate degree requirements. Students who do not select a pre-major option must meet all local associate degree requirements.
Students should request information about program requirements from the institution to which they plan to transfer as early as possible to ensure that appropriate courses are selected.
