Transfer Tools

Whether you are transferring from a California community college or a four-year college, the following resources will help you determine which courses and credits will transfer to USC.

Please note: USC has revised its General Education requirements for students starting college in fall 2015 or after. Please check back later this summer for more details, as we will be updating this site and our publications. In the meantime, please refer to the Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences page for more information. If you have immediate questions or concerns, you can contact your Admission Counselor through our Find Your USC Admission Counselor page.

Students who enrolled in college full-time prior to fall 2015 (not including summer semesters) can use these tools to guide their course selection.

Maintained by the USC Articulation Office, the Interactive Planning Guide will help you determine which undergraduate courses at your current institution will satisfy USC’s General Education or Core requirements, or fulfill lower-division coursework required for your intended major.

In this section:

Articulation Agreements: Community Colleges

Articulation agreements are formal lists of California community college courses that will be accepted for transfer credit.

Articulation Histories: Four-Year Schools

Articulation histories are informal lists of four-year college courses that have been accepted for transfer credit in the past. If a course does not appear in the list, it has not been reviewed and may or may not transfer.
