INVENTORY OF APPROVED PROGRAMS

Effective March 1, 2010, this inventory was “retired” from use at the Chancellor’s Office.
Your search will show only those associate degrees and certificates of achievement
that were approved prior to March 1, 2010.

This report will be replaced by the California Community Colleges Curriculum Inventory
that is being developed in 2010.

This inventory lists credit degrees and certificates offered by California community colleges which are approved by the Chancellor's Office. All California community colleges also offer a full range of university-level coursework in the natural sciences, mathematics, social sciences, humanities, language arts, and fine arts.

KEY TO THE COLUMN HEADINGS

  • T.O.P. The Taxonomy of Programs is a system of nomenclature for designating programs in the California Community College system. This inventory is in its Sixth Edition. The complete T.O.P. manual may be viewed on the Chancellor's Office Web site at http://www.cccco.edu/Portals/4/TopTax6_rev0909.pdf .
  • T.O.P. Title (red). This is the standard name associated with the T.O.P. code.
  • Local Title (green). This is the local program title, which may be more specific than T.O.P. title.
  • Cert Units. Minimum number of core units and restricted electives required for a certificate. Expressed as semester units for all colleges except DeAnza, Foothill, and Lake Tahoe, whose listings are in quarter units.
  • Degree Units. Minimum number of core units and restricted electives required for the major or area of emphasis, and any closely associated prerequisites, in an associate degree program. Excludes general education and open electives. Expressed as semester units for all colleges except DeAnza, Foothill, and Lake Tahoe, whose listings are in quarter units.
  • Degree Type. "A" indicates Associate in Arts, "S" indicates Associate in Science, and "B" indicates that both an Associate in Arts and an Associate in Science are available.
  • Year Approved. Either the year of initial Chancellor's Office approval; or, for some programs, the year the program was first offered locally.
  • Year Projected. This column is no longer used because projected programs are not reported to the Chancellor’s Office any more.
  • Unique Code. This number identifies the program for data reporting purposes. If the unique code is “00000” you may request the correct number from the Chancellor’s Office.
