Equivalent Courses at Some Nearby Community Colleges

  • The table below provides a listing of courses at some nearby community colleges that will transfer in as equivalent to our PSYC 2 and 8 courses.

  • Some courses are no longer being offered by other colleges that may have been approved as equivalent in the past, and a number of colleges are not listed below. 

  • For a more comprehensive list of colleges in California that have equivalent courses, please go to

  • The Department will for the most part honor the equivalent courses listed on

  • To ask about approval of courses not on that list, or approval for meeting other requirements with transfer courses (i.e. upper division courses), you should contact the Department Office to schedule a meeting with the Department Chair.

  • In that case, you will be asked to show a catalog description or course syllabus of the course you would like to transfer over to the Chair to aid in the discussion.
