If you wish to transfer your ELEC or CNET courses to a University to obtain a 4 year degree, and have questions, you have come to the right place!
You can set up appointments with the Counseling Department by calling (909) 274-4380 or through your Mt. SAC portal underneath the Student Success tab. You may contact Eddie Lee in the counseling department for more specific counseling in Electronics or Computer Networking Technology.
Visit Assist, the official California website that gives information on which classes from Mt. SAC will transfer to specific California schools. Here you can select the school you wish to transfer to and see which of our classes can be transferred as Major requirements to count towards specific courses at those schools. This is not to say that if a class does not show up on that list, that it is not possible for it to transfer. Specifically for private universities and out of state schools, you may have to do the leg work yourself by filling out petition forms. This is done after you have already made the transfer.
For each course in the Mt. SAC course catalog, it will say "CSU" at the top of the course description if it can be transferred to a CSU system school. If it says "CSU," this guarantees that at a minimum it can be transferred as elective credit. However, to know if it can be transferred as a required course for credit in your major, visit Assist.
For the Electronics program the following classes are CSU Transferrable:
- ELEC 50A
- ELEC 50B
- ELEC 11
- ELEC 51
- ELEC 56
- ELEC 61
- ELEC 54A
- ELEC 54 B
- ELEC 74
Prior to Cal Poly Pomona transitioning in a semester based system, an articulation agreement had been set up with them for their Electronics Technology majors. Since their transition to semester system, we are currently in the process of re-articulating our classes to be able to transfer as many of our courses to theirs. Most of the classes offered in our ELEC program in the past could be transferred as a required course with the exception of some of our elective or fee based courses, as well as a few others. These types of courses may to be petitioned for elective credit but is up to the university whether it will be accepted. For a complete list of classes at Mt. SAC that will count towards specific classes at another school, you will need to visit Assist.
Mt. SAC's Transfer Services offers valuable information on transferring. Additionally, students may want to view the following schools that offer similar Engineering Technology programs that many of our classes transfer over as required core courses:
Please be aware that the Electronics classes at Mt. SAC are not transferable to traditional Electrical Engineering courses. The reason being is that our classes are not Calculus based, but rather Algebra based. However, our courses are VERY beneficial for students who wish to seek Electrical Engineering degrees in that they will give you a very solid foundation on which to work from. We have had many Electronics students go on to complete an Electrical Engineering degree from a university, and they will tell you that our courses have helped immensely.
