Faculty discipline groups identify common lower division major preparation (TMC) 2. Discipline groups are intersegmental (CSU and CCC) • some UC involvement, too 3. Draft TMCs are vetted statewide (www.c-id.net) & faculty determined. 4. CCCs develop TMC- aligned degrees known as AA-T/AS-Ts and submit them to the CCCCO for approval. Course Identification Numbering System Administered by the Academic Senate for CCC Similar to CAN but with more detailed descriptors Provides the infrastructure for TMCs & course substitution Faculty discipline groups define content for courses (C-ID course descriptors) Drafts of Course descriptors (C-ID) vetted statewide When a college has a C-ID approved course, then they have agreed to accept all others with the same C-ID number. www.c-id.net Administration of Justice Kinesiology Art History Mathematics Business Administration Music Communication Studies Psychology Early Childhood Education Physics Elementary Education Political Science English Sociology Geology Studio Arts Geography Theater Arts History Computer Science Journalism Anthropology And MORE Coming Soon!
