Articulation Agreements

Articulation agreements are used to assist students in taking the appropriate courses at the community colleges that will transfer for credit toward a bachelor's or associate degree at the college or university of their choice. Mount St. Mary's College has a number of formal articulation agreements with community colleges in the Los Angeles area including those listed below.

If you are a current Mount student please follow the links below to locate the Articulation Agreements that correspond to the courses that fulfill the General Education section in the MSMC catalog.

If you are a prospective student interested in transferring course work into Mount St. Mary's College please proceed to the articulation agreements listed below.*

To view the agreements, the Adobe Acrobat Reader must be installed on you machine (this is free software). If you are using a mobile device, download the Acrobat Reader for mobile devices.

Users with visual disabilities may click on the Adobe Acrobat Accessibility Link to access software that makes reading PDF files easier.

Each articulation agreement is divided into three sections.

Section I Lists relevant information about MSMC General Studies Requirements. The General Studies requirements at MSMC include five areas: Communication Skills; Analytical Skills; Arts & Sciences; Modern Language, Religious Studies and Philosophy.

*It is in the best interest of the prospective transfer student to complete the "Section I" General Studies requirement; however, it is not required to complete the entire section for admission purposes.  The General Studies classes completed at a previous institution means you will not have to take it at MSMC.

Section II Lists lower division courses within five major areas selected by MSMC Admission and Advisement offices for Articulation due to their complexity. These five majors are Biological Sciences with emphasis in Pre- Physical Therapy, Business, English, Nursing, and Social Work.

Section III Lists lower division courses within the Liberal Studies major, selected by the Education Department for articulation. Students interested in a Liberal Studies major at MSMC should disregard section I and II.

Attention potential BSN candidates! Effective Fall 2013, students enrolled in the Traditional BSN Program must take the required nutrition course sophomore year at MSMC. Nutrition courses taken at other institutions will not be accepted as meeting our degree requirement.

Agreements are updated every two years. Please refer to the Catalog and the articulation agreements themselves for more specific information.
