Status: 
Completed

Whereas, It is the intent of SB 1440 (Padilla, 2010) to improve student transfer by decreasing the complexity of transfer and the unique requirements of the 23 California State University (CSU) campuses that are a primary source of confusion for students preparing to transfer;

Whereas, SB 1440 permits each of the 112 California community colleges to develop a variety of unique degrees which would not provide the opportunity to develop programs based on statewide coordination (i.e., the ability to transfer to any CSU where that major or a similar major exists) where possible; and

Whereas, SB 1440 does not prohibit the development of model curriculum in each transfer major;

Resolved, That the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges support the development of transfer model curriculum in majors and areas of emphasis through the Course Identification Numbering System (C-ID).

MSC Disposition: Local Senates

Status Report: 

C-ID is a Senate project. Senate representatives work very closely with CSU colleagues to support the work of SB1440 and C-ID.
