Course Transferability and C-ID

Transfer Credit

Courses accepted for transfer by the University of California (UC) and/or California State University (CSU) systems are identified as such in the course details next to "Transferable." Students who have questions regarding transferability of credit for specific courses to specific institutions should consult a counselor.

Course Identification Numbering System (C-ID)

The C-ID system is a statewide numbering system designed to identify comparable courses and facilitate articulation. Any community college course that bears a C-ID number signifies that it is equivalent in content, rigor, and student learning outcomes. Any course with a C-ID number can be assured that it will be accepted at other participating community college or CSU campuses. For example: C-ID COMM 110 at Sacramento City College will be accepted by any other college that has been approved for the same C-ID COMM 110 number.

Students should consult a counselor for specific information and help evaluating course transferability. In addition, students should visit to confirm how each college's course will be accepted for the following:

  1. Majors at CSU and UC campuses
  2. CSU general education requirements
  3. IGETC general education requirements

Please consult a counselor to find out if your courses meet requirements at private and out-of-state colleges and universities. See an up-to-date listing of Sacramento City College C-ID approved courses at
