Articulation Agreements

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

Courses that are transferable to the University of California (UC) system from California community colleges or another accredited college or university are typically acceptable at Saint Mary's. However, these must be completed courses with letter mark (rather than, Pass, Satisfactory, or Credit) grades of C- or above to be applied for advanced standing credit toward graduation at Saint Mary's.

Courses in remedial subjects, vocational fields, secondary school mathematics and non-academic areas are not acceptable for transfer credit.

For help in determining which of your UC or community college courses are transferable to SMC, we recommend using assist.org.

Still have questions? We're happy to meet with you one on one during a transcript evaluation.

We maintain articulation agreements with numerous California community colleges. Check with your transfer center to see if they have an agreement with Saint Mary's. See list below:
