Course Identification Numbering System (C-ID)
The Course Identification Numbering System (C-ID) is a statewide numbering system independent from the course numbers assigned by local California community colleges. A C-ID number next to a course signals that participating California colleges and universities have determined that courses offered by other California community colleges are comparable in content and scope to courses offered on their own campuses, regardless of their unique titles or local course number. Thus, if a schedule of classes or catalog lists a course bearing a C-ID number, for example ENGL 100, students at that college can be assured that it will be accepted in lieu of a course bearing the C-ID ENGL 100 designation at another community college. In other words, the C-ID designation can be used to identify comparable courses at different community colleges. However, students should always go to www.assist.org to confirm how each college's course will be accepted at a particular four-year college or university for transfer credit.
The C-ID numbering system is useful for students attending more than one community college and is applied to many of the transferable courses students need as preparation for transfer. Because these course requirements may change and because courses may be modified and qualified for or deleted from the C-ID database, students should always check with a counselor to determine how C-ID designated courses fit into their educational plans for transfer.
Students may consult the ASSIST database at www.assist.org for specific information on C-ID course designations. Counselors are also available in the Counseling Center to help students interpret this information.
Courses designated "CSU" are baccalaureate level and will transfer to all of the California State Universities and count toward graduation at Mt. San Antonio College.
Courses designated "UC" are baccalaureate level and will transfer to all of the University of California campuses and California State Universities, and will count toward graduation at Mt. San Antonio College.
UC limits credit for some courses. Students contemplating transfer to UC should consult with a counselor or advisor and review www.assist.org for course credit limitations and changes.
A maximum of four semester units of UC credit will be awarded for Kinesiology Activity courses. Courses of a vocational nature will not be awarded UC credit.
In listing a prerequisite for enrolling in a course, an "eligibility" may also be listed. An eligibility requirement specifies the course level the student must qualify to enroll in–not that the course has to be completed prior to enrollment. For example, the prerequisite "eligibility for English 68" requires that the student must qualify to enroll in English 68 in order to enroll in the particular course.
A prerequisite is a course which must be taken as preparation for enrolling in another course.
A corequisite is a course which is required to be taken simultaneously in order to enroll in another course.
An advisory is a course which is advised, but not required, to be taken either before or in conjunction with enrollment in a course.
Courses designated "Not Degree Applicable" are college level classes which are neither a part of an associate degree or certificate program nor transferable to four-year colleges and universities.
Courses designated "Degree Applicable" are college-level classes which are a part of an associate degree or certificate program.
Associate in Arts for Transfer and Associate in Science for Transfer are referred to as Transfer degrees.
Associate in Science degrees and Associate in Arts degrees in Liberal Arts and Sciences with Emphases are referred to as Associate degrees.
Certificates of Achievement are certificates of at least 18 units.
Skills Certificates are certificates of less than 18 units.
