Saddleback College continually ranks among the most successful of California's 116 Community Colleges in transferring students due to its commitment to developing and maintaining articulation agreements.

What are articulation agreements?

Articulation agreements define courses which are comparable to, or acceptable in lieu of, requirements at the transfer college or university. Formal articulation agreements assure students that specified coursework completed at Saddleback College will transfer and can satisfy general education and/or lower-division major preparation requirements or electives at the transfer institution.

  • Saddleback College's Articulation Office has developed extensive articulation agreements with CSU and UC campuses which are available at
  • Articulation agreements have also been established with numerous Private and Out-of-State Colleges & Universities.

For assistance in developing an academic plan and for comprehensive general education and major preparation advisement, please make an appointment to see a counselor in Counseling Services.
