Articulated General Education and Transfer Requirements

PAU's general education requirements largely mirror the requirements to transfer to a CSU. We have outlined below a general articulation plan as it relates to courses guaranteed to transfer from a CA community college to the CSU system. This list is not comprehensive - we encourage students to complete a transfer evaluation to get a clear sense of how many courses they may transfer to PAU.

You can also visit https://resource.assist.org/ to see a list of courses at your community college that are certified to meet the CSU general education requirements.
