Model Curriculum


Click here for an important ASCCC C-ID update.

It should be noted that model curriculum (MC) falls outside of SB 1440/440 and is not subject to the limits and mandates associated with such legislation. As a result, MCs will not obligate colleges to develop MC-aligned degrees or certificates. Each college may determine if the model curriculum is appropriate for their program and students.

Please see the links below for downloadable documents. For announcements related to your discipline please email to be added to your discipline's listserv. 

For more information regarding model curriculum please see our model curriculum FAQ document.
