Course Identification Numbering System (C-ID)

The Course Identification Numbering System (C-ID) is a statewide numbering system independent from the course numbers assigned by local California community colleges.  A C-ID number signals that participating California colleges and universities have determined that courses are comparable in content and scope. Courses with matching C-ID numbers may be used interchangeably to meet major requirements for any AA, AS, AA-T, or AS-T major at Fullerton College.  Students who successfully complete a course with an approved C-ID number or who have exceeded the maximum number of attempts allowed as outlined by Title 5 of the California Code of Regulation may not enroll in any other course within the District with the same C-ID (see Course Repetition).

The C-ID numbering system is useful for students attending more than one community college and is applied to many of the transferable courses students need as preparation for transfer.  Because these course requirements may change and because courses may be modified and qualified for or deleted from the C-ID database, students should always check with a counselor to determine how C-ID designated courses fit into their educational plans for transfer. Students may go to to confirm how each college’s course will be accepted at a particular four-year college or university for transfer credit.
