The CAN System no longer exists. However, these concepts will be used to inform the new C-ID System.

Whereas fully articulated major preparation programs greatly promote transfer, reducing the need for students to retake courses, shortening time-to-degree, and eliminating waste of public funds, and

Whereas the California Articulation Number (CAN) System is the only statewide system of articulating major preparation courses, and

Whereas even the CAN System does not provide for articulation of complete major preparation programs,

Resolved that the Academic Senate seek to augment the California Articulation Number (CAN) process by developing matrices in each CAN discipline (currently 35) that meet the major preparation requirements for each receiving institution, and

Resolved that the Academic Senate urge the CAN Board to look at these matrices to identify courses in each discipline that need to be added to the CAN list to complete the list for full major preparation at each receiving institution, and

Resolved that the Academic Senate urge that the matrices, once developed, be published in the annual CAN Guide.
