Articulation Agreements

Mount Saint Mary’s University is in the process of updating articulation agreements. The agreements outlined on this page should be used as a general guide to assist prospective students in determining which courses will transfer to the Mount.

DISCLAIMER: At the discretion of the University, and as academic program requirements develop and/or change, course transferability may also be subject to change.

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 Saint Mary’s University 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 MSMU catalog.

Each articulation agreement is divided into three sections.

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

Section II Lists lower division courses within five major areas selected by MSMU 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 MSMU should disregard section I and II.
