In general, it’s recommended that you complete a combination of your lower-division major prep and general education (GE) courses.
We encourage you to meet with a counselor to help you develop an educational plan tailored for your major and specific target colleges/universities.
Below, you will find information on general education patterns and transferable major prep courses that you can take at ELAC. Use our Transfer Planning Worksheet to help you get started.
General Education Patterns
An articulation agreement is an agreement between two college campuses that ensures the transferability of courses to meet major and general education requirements.
University of California (UC) and California State University (CSU)
East Los Angeles College maintains articulation agreements with all campuses of the University of California and California State University systems. These agreements can be accessed at http://www.assist.org/
Independent Colleges and Universities
East Los Angeles College maintains articulation agreements with several independent colleges and universities in California. Some agreements list only courses that fulfill general education requirements, while other agreements also list courses that fulfill major requirements. Hard copies of these agreements may be obtained at the ELAC Counseling Department or in the Transfer Center.
