Articulation at Palomar and ASSIST.org Information
Articulation is the process of developing a formal, written agreement that identifies courses (or sequences of courses) on a “sending” campus that are comparable to, or acceptable in lieu of, specific course requirements at a “receiving” campus. Successful completion of an articulated course assures the student has taken the appropriate course and received the necessary instruction and preparation. The articulation process enables the student to progress to the next level of instruction at the receiving institution. The articulation process further ensures that completed courses satisfy college or university transferability standards, general education breadth, and/or major preparation and are advantageous to the District. Articulation agreements shall be designed to reduce the loss of credit or repetition of coursework from one institution to another, be aligned with major preparation and general education, and include the appropriate academic preparation for upper division university level coursework.
Palomar College has over 400 articulation agreements available on ASSIST.org. Palomar College has articulation agreements with a variety of institutions of higher education. They include, University of California (UC) campuses, California State University (CSU) campuses, private and out-of-state colleges/universities.
ASSIST.org continues to undergo significant technical challenges as a result of a technical upgrade to a new ASSIST site. The ASSIST Resource Center is the source of updates and news about the status and expected launch date of the new website. Course articulation agreements and new curriculum effective fall 2017 and after cannot be displayed at this time. Individual CSU and UC campus program and curriculum updates are provided on a continuous basis. These updates may be found on the left menu. Additionally, Palomar curriculum changes are provided, including Palomar College’s active course list displaying GE approval.

ASSIST continues to experience delays in housing up to date articulation information. The California State University has provided a temporary website to house all CSU campus articulation changes in one location. This website includes links to each campus solution to provide the public articulation information as it relates to major and course to course articulation changes.
