Whereas, Title 5 55805.5 subsection (a) provides for associate degree applicability for any course accepted for transfer to the California State University or the University of California;

Whereas, System Office Legal Opinion O02-16 has interpreted other parts of 55805.5 as barring this applicability in some cases; and

Whereas, this interpretation unnecessarily complicates evaluation of a student's progress toward a degree;


Resolved, That the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges recommend a change in language to Title 5 55805.5 so that subsection (a) supersedes its other subsections.
