CSM Courses Transferable to the California State University System (CSU)

The following is a list of courses designated by College of San Mateo Committee on Instruction as appropriate for baccalaureate credit. The courses are accepted by all California State Universities as applicable toward a baccalaureate degree.

Use the ASSIST website as the most reliable and up-to-date resource to determine how course credit earned at College of San Mateo can be applied when transferred to the CSU system and individual colleges within the system. On the ASSIST website the following information is essential for transfer planning.

  • Lists, by catalog year, of CSM courses that are transferable to CSU
  • Lists, by catalog year, of CSM courses that can be applied to CSU General Education Certification.
  • Lists, by catalog year, of CSM courses that can be applied to lower division major requirements for CSU campuses and majors
  • Lists, by catalog year, of CSM to CSU course equivalencies
  • Lists, by catalog year, of CSM courses that can be applied to meet the CSU graduation requirement for US History, Constitutions, and California State and Local government
  • C-ID course designations for CSM

IMPORTANT: There are instances when a CSM course is approved for a CSU GE area or lower division major preparation but the same course at one of our sister colleges (Skyline College or Cañada College) is not approved and does not carry the same articulation. View the CSU information for the college in which you are enrolled in the course to confirm the articulation.
