Articulation is the process that links two educational institutions to help students make a smooth transition from the Community College to the university without experiencing a delay or duplication of coursework. Courses can be identified as equivalent to the university through a system of approvals that involves faculty within the university. Even if a course transfers over and covers multiple areas, such as for GE purposes or Major purposes, the units transferred remain consistent. 



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 and believe that they may apply to their major or GE requirements can reach out to advisors who can request course reviews through TES as well as to research past equivalencies that may be currently out of date but were active at the time the course was taken.
