C-ID: Common Course Numbering
Download the entire publication
- The Course Identification Numbering System (C-ID) addresses the legislated mandate for a common course numbering system among California’s public colleges and universities.
- Imposing a common course numbering system that would replace existing course numbers would be costly and confusing for students.
- C-ID consists of descriptors and associated identifiers for specific lower-division, transferable courses. These identifiers can be used in conjunction with existing numbering systems at colleges and universities to facilitate the identification of comparable courses.
