Transfer Credit

Los Medanos College Articulation Agreement

How to read this agreement:

Transferable courses are listed below by Core Curriculum area. In each area, a transferable course is listed one of two ways:

  • A transfer course will appear in the list of courses paired with its direct USF equivalent.
  • A transfer course with no direct equivalent will pair with the USF pseudo course number 1XX. These courses may be used to fulfill general education Core requirements where applicable.
  • If the transfer course does not meet a specific requirement, it may be used as elective credit.
  • USF makes every attempt to maintain the following equivalencies to ensure that the information is current for prospective transfer students.

This agreement is a menu of course options for planning purposes; you do not need to fulfill each area to be eligible for transfer to USF.
