RATIONALE: The Lower Division Transfer Pattern (LDTP) project is transitioning to integration with the CCC sponsored C-ID project.  During this transition period, existing TCSU course descriptors and their accompanying articulation agreements will be remain valid through summer 2012.  It is the intention of the CCC to fast-track consideration of TCSU course descriptors for adoption as C-ID course descriptors.  There are the ongoing CSU/CCC collaborative efforts to develop the new C-ID course descriptors, and CSU campuses are encouraged to accept for articulation the C-ID based courses from CCC campuses.  As soon as the CSU LDTP Steering Committee reaches a tentative agreement with the CCC regarding an appeal review process for C-ID based course articulations, additional resolutions will be brought to the ASCSU to finalize CSU articulation policy regarding C-ID based courses.
