Articulation agreements indicate courses at a community college that transfer directly into Saint Mary's for major or general requirements.

Courses that transfer to the University of California (UC) system are transferable to Saint Mary's College. Most academic work completed at accredited 4-year institutions will transfer. Saint Mary's College maintains articulation agreements with numerous community colleges in California. Check with your transfer center to see if they have an agreement with Saint Mary's.

The Core Curriculum began in the fall of 2012 and is the foundation of learning at Saint Mary’s College.  It is an intentional, developmental, and integrated program of study designed to educate students in three broad intellectual areas: Habits of Mind, Pathways to Knowledge, and Engaging the World.  Most importantly, the Saint Mary’s College Core is student-centered, focused on the skills, knowledge, and values that our students will learn in their time at Saint Mary’s.  All transfer students entering in fall 2014 and beyond will adhere to this curricular pattern.

Although the existing articulation agreements are outdated, they are being honored in as much as the courses and programs are still transferable.  Specific course placement for Core requirements will vary.  Below is a template with an example of the description of the Core learning goals, types of courses that can fulfill these goals, and number of courses required for each category.   Articulation agreements will be updated during the fall of 2014 and will reflect the new Core Curriculum.  Please refer to our 2014-2015 course catalog for additional academic information.
