Articulation is housed under Academic Programs and Services. Our primary goal is to ensure that students planning to transfer from California’s public postsecondary institutions have access to accurate information about Cal State East Bay course equivalencies and transfer pathways. In support of this goal, Articulation strives to

  • Identify potential course equivalencies and pathways, facilitate faculty review, and then publicize this information;
  • Collaborate with other Cal State East Bay offices working with transfer credit;
  • Develop and deliver resources about articulation and transfer credit to the campus;
  • Utilize technology to improve data accuracy and increase accessibility to information about transfer credit.

Articulation Agreements


Current articulation agreements with California's community colleges and public four-year institutions are maintained in ASSIST, a public database that displays how lower division course units can be applied after transfer. Cal State East Bay's faculty-approved course-to-course agreements are organized both by department and by undergraduate major.  ASSIST 

The launch of the new ASSIST website has been postponed. Significant updates will be shared when they become available.  Cal State East Bay campus users, please click for information about CSU GE certification information.

Agreements outside of ASSIST

Cal State East Bay maintains a limited number of articulation agreements with other institutions which are not displayed in ASSIST.

Associate Degrees for Transfer (ADT/STAR/SB1440) Information

The Student Transfer Achievement Reform Act was enacted with the passage of SB 1440, which became state law in 2010. The STAR Act enabled California’s Community Colleges and the California State University to collaborate on the creation of the Associate Degree for Transfer (ADT). Two types of ADTs exist: the Associate of Arts for Transfer (AA-T) and the Associate of Science for Transfer (AS-T) degrees.  Cal State East Bay recognizes AA-Ts or AS-Ts as similar to over eighty of its degree programs.    Associate Degrees for Transfer (ADT/STAR/SB1440) Roadmaps.
