COURSE INDENTIFICATION NUMBERING SYSTEM: C-ID
The Course Identification Numbering system, or C-ID, identifies lower-division, transferable courses commonly articulated between the California Community Colleges and universities (including Universities of California, the California State Universities, as well as with many of California's independent colleges and universities). Faculty develop a "Course Descriptor," which is given a C-ID number. Course Outline of Records at all community colleges are then compared with this descriptor. Once faculty agree that the courses match, the community college course will be assigned the C-ID number. In short, C-ID is a method for facilitating articulation and transfer.
