​What is Articulation?

Articulation is the process of developing a formal, written agreement that identifies courses (or sequences of courses) on a “sending” campus that are comparable to, or acceptable in lieu of, specific course requirements at a “receiving” campus.  Successful completion of an articulated course assures the student and the faculty that the student has taken the appropriate course, received the necessary instruction and preparation, and that similar outcomes can be assured.

Norco College has articulation agreements with the California State University (CSU), University of California (UC), and many private universities.  Completing an articulated course for a specific major or for general education enables students to fulfill a university requirement for admission and/or graduation while at Norco College​​ prior to transfer.  ​Articulation agreements between Norco College and the CSU and UC campuses can be found at www.assist.org.​

What is ASSIST?

ASSIST (Articulation System Stimulating Interinstitutional Student Transfer) is the official repository of articulation for California's public colleges and universities that displays reports of how course credits earned at a community college can be applied when transferred to a California State University or University of California campus. 

​Transfer Planning​

Successful transfer planning involves completing articulated courses for general education and major preparation based on the university that you would like to transfer to.  Students are strongly encouraged to meet with a counselor to develop a Student Educational Plan.
