Welcome! Articulation is the process of evaluating courses to determine whether a particular course offered at Santa Barbara City College is comparable to, or acceptable in lieu of, a corresponding course at a particular UC, CSU, independent or out-of-state university campus. Each university system has its own program requirements. These requirements vary with the student's intended major. An articulation agreement is an agreement with a four-year institution that specifies which SBCC classes may be transferred to meet general education, elective, or major requirements. The purpose of articulation is to facilitate the successful transfer of students from the community colleges to the baccalaureate colleges and universities.
