ARTICULATION/TRANSFER OF CREDIT COURSE EQUIVALENCY REVIEW
The Office of Articulation/Course Equivalency Review and Documentation is housed under Academic Programs and Services. Our primary goal is to ensure that students planning to transfer to Cal State East Bay from other 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;
- Support the Faculty’s role in course equivalency review;
- Collaborate with other California State University Campuses to facilitate reciprocity of courses (both online and on-the-ground).
- Collaborate with other Cal State East Bay offices working with transfer credit (Admissions/Advising/International Student Affairs/Major Departments and Programs);
- 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 and Course Equivalencies
Current articulation agreements with ALL other colleges, universities, and programs: public. private, domestic (in and out of California) as well as international universities; are maintained in the Transfer Equivalency System (TES).
CSUEB uses TES to process equivalency reviews and is the official database for all transfer courses.
Students who have courses not listed in TES need to make an appointment with an academic or department adviser. The advisers can request course reviews through TES as well as to research past equivalencies that may be currently out of date but were active at the time the course was taken.
Please visit AACE or your department adviser.
Cal State East Bay maintains a number of STAR ACT ASSOCIATE DEGREES FOR TRANSFER PATHWAYS from California Community Colleges with other institutions which are not displayed in in TES or ASSIST.
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: 1) Associate of Arts for Transfer (AA-T) and 2) Associate of Science for Transfer (AS-T) degrees.
Cal State East Bay recognizes AA-Ts or AS-Ts as similar to many of its degree programs.
Cal State East Bay campus users, please click for information about CSU GE certification information.
Articulation agreements with California's community colleges and public four-year institutions are also maintained in ASSIST.ORG, a public database that displays how lower division course units can be applied after transfer.
PLEASE NOTE: 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 need to be aware that ASSIST is no longer current. The information contained in the ASSIST SYSTEM is frozen at 2016 and does not display current semester courses. The California State University, East Bay is not responsible for this third-party website. Advisers, faculty, staff and students are encouraged to use TES for the most accurate and correct information.

The Articulation Office
Please remember that students are best advised to meet with their department adviser every semester to stay on track for graduation. The Articulation Office is not a student facing office but works with the department faculty and student advisers to help them support each student’s pathway to graduation.
