Not Addressed

Whereas, California Articulation Number System (CAN) designations were typically included in college catalogs, typically in a list with the University of California Transfer Course Agreement and at the end of each course’s catalog description;

Whereas, CAN has been replaced by Course Identification Numbering System (C-ID) designations which indicate that a course outline of record is aligned to an intersegmentally developed descriptor, establishing intrasegmental articulation and often permitting inclusion in Associate Degrees for Transfer;

Whereas, Adding C-ID designations to colleges catalog provides students with valuable information regarding the transferability of courses and in determining the most appropriate courses to complete their educational goals; and

Whereas, Including C-ID designations on student transcripts facilitates students receiving proper credit when taking classes at multiple California community colleges and upon transfer to a California State University (CSU) campus;

Resolved, That the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges urge local academic senates and curriculum committees to include information about courses with approved C-ID numbers in their college catalogs, either as a single list, at the end of each course’s description, or both; and

Resolved, That the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges urge local academic senates to work with their administration to add C-ID numbers to student transcripts.
