Articulation and Transfer
ARTICULATION and TRANSFER
The Articulation Office is responsible for the development and publication of AHC's
CSU GE Certification Pattern, AHC IGETC Certification pattern, AHC UC Transferable
Course List and the development of formal course-to-course agreements between AHC
and four-year colleges and universities. The primary articulation focus is with the
California University of California (CSU) and University of California (UC) systems.
Academic Policy & Planning (AP&P) and Articulation
The role of the articulation officer (AO) in the AHC curriculum development process
is to provide information on transfer policies, procedures, and regulations especially
as they affect current or proposed transfer level courses and programs. The AO reports
regularly at AP&P committee meetings and is a crucial part of the academic policy
and planning processes.
Initial Development Phase
The development of new transfer curriculum and/or modification of existing transfer curriculum is
done in consultation with the college's Articulation Officer. The AO should be contacted
during the initial planning stages. Early consultation will save lots of time and
effort in the review process.
The AO and initiator will research comparable course information at other California
Community Colleges (CCC), at California State University (CSU) or University of California
(UC) campuses. Approval for proposed transfer level curriculum requires that a comparable lower-division CSU or UC or other community college course exists. In situations where there isn’t
a comparable course the course will be reviewed based on baccalaureate level criteria
provided by the CSU and UC.
articulation agreements, Transfer Model Curriculum, and CID
The AO is the person responsible for initiating system-wide and campus specific articulation
agreement review requests. The AO works with faculty in identifying courses for system-wide
articulation, transfer GE patterns, UC transferability and ADTs as well as campus
specific course-to-course articulations important for major preparation requirements
at the CSU and/or UC campuses.

"I am a frequent visitor to the Allan Hancock College Library on the Santa Maria campus for many reasons. It's a place for me to enjoy some peace and quiet between classes, as well as study and complete my homework. The librarians are always nice with a warm welcome and very helpful. Students also receive free Wi-Fi and computer access."
