CSM Courses Transferable to the University of California System (UC)

At the time of the catalog printing the UC TRANSFER COURSE AGREEMENT (UC TCA) for 2017-2018 was not available. The following is the 2016-2017 UC TCA. (Courses for 2017-2018 approval are submitted in June 2017 and available on the ASSIST website in August.)

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 UC system and individual colleges within the system. The UC TCA will also note course and credit limitations. An example of a UC TCA limitation that is noted in the ASSIST website is “no credit is granted for Biology 100 or 110 if taken after Biology 230.” On the ASSIST website the following information is essential for transfer planning.

  • Lists, by catalog year, of CSM courses that are transferable to UC
  • Lists, by catalog year, of CSM courses that can be applied to IGETC for UC and CSU General Education Certification (Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum).
  • Lists, by catalog year, of CSM courses that can be applied to lower division major requirements for UC campuses and majors
  • Lists, by catalog year, of CSM to UC course equivalencies

IMPORTANT: There are instances when a CSM course is approved for an IGETC 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 UC information for the college in which you are enrolled in the course to confirm the articulation.
