SUBJECT: 400s: Academic affairs EFFECTIVE: October 20, 2010
Section: 402.4.5 California Community College Transfer Summary

The goal of this procedure is to provide California Community College students an opportunity to continue a full-time or part-time education toward a baccalaureate degree, when transferring from any of the California community colleges to any North Dakota University System (NDUS) institution, following the student's completion of the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum.

Subject to an additional required speech course, students who are verified, by official transcript or by official correspondence from one of the California community colleges, to have completed the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum will be granted credit for having met lower division general education requirements at the receiving North Dakota institution. Students may be required to complete other courses, which may fall under a general education category, only if the courses are required as part of the student's major and were not completed prior to transfer or are a part of the receiving institution's upper division general education requirements. In addition to the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum, California students must complete a speech course prior to or upon transfer to a NDUS institution.

To be eligible under this assurance, students must:
  1. provide documented completion of the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC),
  2. have a 2.0 GPA on a 4.0 scale,
  3. apply for admission to the receiving institution,
  4. supply the receiving institution with all required documentation,
  5. meet all deadlines set by the receiving institution,
  6. be in good standing with the prior institution and
  7. be subject to the criminal justice disclosure and review process of each campus.
All students should seek academic advisement from both the sending institution and the receiving institution well in advance of attempting transfer. Students also should attempt to complete all prerequisites for admission to a chosen major. It is the responsibility of the student to apply for admission to baccalaureate degree-granting institutions where the student's chosen major is offered.

Some specific programs (education, pharmacy, nursing, etc.) require additional or higher admission standards than those enumerated in this procedure or may be required by federal or state licensing agencies to ensure additional criteria are met. Should a student meet the eligibility requirements in this procedure and not be admitted to a specific NDUS baccalaureate program, the student should contact the NDUS Director of Articulation and Transfer for assistance in resolving the issue or finding an alternate institution or program.

Students who have completed the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum from a California community college and require assistance should contact the NDUS Director of Articulation and Transfer by visiting www.ndus.edu or by calling 701-858-3494.
