11/6/2019: Course articulation by department for the 17/18, 18/19 and 19/20 academic years is now available on the ASSIST website.

Publication of articulation organized by major requirements is underway. Priorities:

  • Impacted majors requiring supplemental application criteria
  • Other impacted majors
  • New and significantly revised majors (from Fall 2017 until now)
  • Most frequently declared SF State majors overall
  • Top CA Community College feeders

Interim tools:

  • Note: now that articulation data for each California Community College is available in ASSIST, these institutions are no longer available in the supplemental database. 
  • For current information about SF State degree program requirements, refer to the Academic Programs section of the University Bulletin.
  • For an ongoing summary of requirement changes or other updates affecting lower division major preparation, refer to Revised SF State Major Info.
  • Bay Area CCCs: please refer to on a regular basis. Major agreements for Bay Area colleges are being published on an ongoing basis. Write to us to request a major agreement that's not available in ASSIST and we will respond to you as soon as possible.
  • For the most recent summary of SF State courses aligned to C-ID, follow the C-ID link in the left menu.


The Articulation office works to ensure that prospective students have access to accurate information about approved SF State course equivalencies and transfer pathways. In support of this goal, we

  • Identify potential course equivalencies and pathways, facilitate faculty review, and display approved course equivalencies for requirements in SF State's undergraduate degree programs;
  • Collaborate with other SF State 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 other CSU campuses are maintained in ASSIST, a public database that displays how lower division course units can be applied after transfer. SF State's faculty-approved course-to-course agreements are organized by department and by undergraduate major. Visit ASSIST at


Agreements outside of ASSIST

SF State maintains course and GE equivalencies with other institutions which are not displayed in ASSIST.


Student Transfer Achievement Reform Act (STAR Act/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): Associate of Arts for Transfer (AA-T) and  Associate of Science for Transfer (AS-T).  SF State recognizes AA-Ts or AS-Ts as similar to nearly ninety of its degree programs.   More STAR Act/SB1440 Information.
