SJSU articulation agreements are formal agreements between a transfer campus and the SJSU. They determine how courses taught in a transfer school can be used to meet a SJSU requirement. SJSU focuses primarily on securing articulation agreements with California community colleges, as they are our main feeder schools. Most of these agreements identify California Community courts that can be used instead of a SJSU course to meet secondary requirements specific to the SJSU. From university to university and other regionally accredited higher education and university professionals, we are not a top priority. CCC, CSU, UC articulated course conventions are listed by school or grouped by discipline/academic department. The available articulation agreements as well as the General Education Joint Agreements (GEs) are available below. GE course articulation agreements are only available in the links below GE Breadth or TES. General education includes courses that a student can take in a community school to meet the requirements of general and expanded education at the University of San Jose State. San Jose State University has completed its transfer studies with more than 130 public colleges and universities in California.

Note that not all courses are automatically transferred. You can find the latest details on transfer credits on the articulation page. General broadband education agreements consist of current courses that a student can take at a California university college or another CSU to meet the requirements of California State University. International GE agreements are available below on GE`s width page. Note: The articulation of course-to-course does not mean that a course also deserves the General Education Credit (GE). GE authorizations are campus specific, i.e. the student receives GE credits in the area for which the on-campus course was certified, when and where the course was completed. (For example, TA 40A speaks at West Valley Community College with TA 005 at San Jose State University. TA 40A is NOT licensed for GE at West Valley College, but TA 005 hits area C1 when it is completed at SJSU. If the student completes THE WEST Valley College TA 40A, he will NOT receive GE credits for this course, but if he completes the SJSU TA 005, he will receive GE Area C1 credits.) Entry to San Jose State is competitive in all majors.

The SJSU always has more qualified candidates than new places of study. This is why the SJSU is a concerned campus with relevant programs. You can find up-to-date information on the registration effect of the SJSU on our website SJSU Impaction Information. Current study programs/major documents with specific transfer agreements with California public institutions [California Community Colleges (CCC), California State Universities (CSU) or University of California (UC)]. These courses should be completed before the transfer, whenever possible. Many transfer students from CA Community Colleges have taken Lower General Education (Core GE) courses at their home university. This result could have been achieved through a CSU-GE width agreement or the IGETC agreement. If a student has obtained a full certification by THE CSU GE-Breadth or IGETC, he has met the requirements for core GE course work. Students should consult their Community College Advisor to plan coursework to complete these certifications. San Jose State University has completed its transfer studies with more than 130 public colleges and universities in California.

SJSU has additional articulation agreements extending beyond California public schools, which can be found in the links below of the GE Breadth and Transfer Evaluation System (TES). These are lists of courses at public colleges or universities in California (CCC, CSU or UC) that are accepted for specific courses at San Jose State University.
