 C-ID = Course Identification Numbering System
 Administered by the Academic Senate for CCC
 Facilitates the identification of comparable courses (“common course
numbering”) & increases articulation across all systems of higher
education
 Provides the infrastructure for TMCs & course substitution.
 Replaces the old “CAN” system.
 We articulate to course descriptors, not course to course ( a different way
to articulate). AOs send all your courses in new degrees to C-ID.org
 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
 Streamline student transition from CCC to CSU
 Earn AA-T or AS-T for completion of CSU GE-Breadth or IGETC and 18 units in
major in the TMC-aligned degree
 No other local CCC graduation requirements.
 Enhanced CSU admission opportunities
 Guaranteed priority admission with junior status to a CSU campus with
“similar” major
 After transfer to CSU, guaranteed degree completion within 60 semester units at
the CSU
 Lower cost to students and taxpayers
 Access to out of area CSUs
 GPA bump for impacted majors and/or campuses (Note: student may need to be
more competitive)
 New degrees are called Associate in Arts or Science in <major> for
Transfer: AA-T or AS-T
 Degrees include
o 60 sem./90 qtr. CSU-transferable units
o Completion of IGETC or CSU GE-Breadth
o Minimum 18 sem./27 qtr. units in major
o No additional local requirements allowed
 Chancellor’s Office says that based on curriculum offered at your
college in alignment with the TMC, CCCs will need to offer many more
degrees
 Details forthcoming from ASCCC and Chancellor’s Office

1. Faculty discipline groups:
• identify common lower division major preparation (TMC)
• define content for courses (C-ID course descriptors) Submit local
courses for C-ID # (Articulation officers)
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. Drafts of Course descriptors (C-ID) vetted statewide
5. CCCs develop TMC- aligned degrees (AA-T/AS-T) and submit them
to the CCCCO for approval.
 Each CSU determines if the TMC is similar Official
repository for “similar” majors: www.sb1440.org
 “Similar” means a transfer student arrives with the TMC
coursework and lower-division GE ,and the CSU campus
can deliver the baccalaureate degree in 60 units. (60 + 60)
 Some options/ concentrations within majors may not be
considered similar.
 Upper-division GE must be part of the 60 units. Any missing
lower-division major preparation or American Institutions
requirements may be included in the CSU 60 units
