Application of C-ID Descriptors to General Education Areas and Courses

Resolution Number: 
Assigned to : 
In Progress

Whereas, One of the goals of the Course Identification Numbering (C-ID) System is to facilitate articulation for students when they attend multiple colleges;

Whereas, Currently C-ID course descriptors are primarily designed for articulation of major preparation courses and are not generally used in articulating California State University (CSU) general education courses;

Whereas, Having C-ID course descriptors developed and articulated for areas of CSU General Education Breadth patterns would assist students in completing their general education certifications at multiple colleges; and

Whereas, Common general education courses exist in disciplines that are not among the most popular transfer majors, and, therefore, do not currently have C-ID descriptors developed or planned;

Resolved, That the Academic Senate of California Community Colleges work with the Academic Senate of the California State University (ASCSU) to allow for Course Identification Numbering (C-ID) descriptor-based general education articulation; and

Resolved, That the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges work within the C-ID System to explore the development of descriptors for common general education courses in disciplines that do not have a transfer degree developed or planned.


Status Report: 

As far as I know we never convinced CSU on this, though we tried several times.  I am not sure of the status of the second resolved?
