Articulation is the process that links the curriculum between community colleges and universities so that students can transfer from a community college to a university without experiencing a delay or duplication of coursework. Articulated courses at Riverside City College are those that are identified by a university as equivalent or comparable to courses taught on a university campus. Completing an articulated course, for a specific major or for general education, enables students to satisfy a university admission and/or graduation requirement while at Riverside City College, prior to transfer. Riverside City College has articulation agreements with the University of California (UC), the California State University (CSU) and many private universities.

Articulation agreements between Riverside City College and the UC and CSU campuses can be found at The links at the left will provide you with information on articulated general education patterns between Riverside City College and the University of California (UC) and the California State University (CSU), articulated major preparation agreements, and agreements between Riverside City College and private universities.

Successful transfer planning involves developing an educational plan that includes primarily articulated courses for major preparation and general education. Students are strongly encouraged to meet with a Riverside City College counselor to develop an educational plan.

There are many private universities and out of state colleges that may accept IGETC to meet lower division general education and/or have articulated courses.  Please meet with a counselor for more information.
