The 2022-2023 COS Catalog provides the information about the degrees, certificates, and courses we offer, and the guidelines for enrollment, financial aid, and student support services among other general information. COS is proud to announce that we offer many SB 1440 Transfer Degrees. These degrees are designed to provide a clear pathway to a CSU major and baccalaureate degree. Current and prospective students are encouraged to meet with a counselor to review their options for transfer and to develop an educational plan that best meets their goals and needs.
As a student, it is important to understand your "catalog rights." Students in continuous attendance may choose any catalog in effect during their attendance. Continuous attendance is defined as earning at least one-half unit of credit during consecutive academic years. An academic year starts in the fall semester and concludes at the end of the summer session. Once established at COS, continuous attendance may be maintained by earning credits at any regionally accredited institution. Students not in continuous attendance must select the catalog in effect at the time of the awarding of a certificate or an associate degree.
The College reserves the right to amend, modify or otherwise revise any provision in this catalog for reasons including but not limited to:
These changes may be made without prior notice and may supersede this publication or portion thereof.
