Existing law required the California Community Colleges and the California State University adopt a common course numbering system for the 20 highest-demand majors no later than June 1, 2006, and authorized the University of California and private postsecondary institutions to do the same. Existing law also requires that no later than June 30, 2006, the Board of Governors of the California Community Colleges and the Trustees of the California State University to report to the Legislature, and requests the Regents of the University of California to report to the Legislature, on the status and plans to implement a common course numbering system for the majors that are not the 20 highest demand majors.

By July 1, 2024, the California Community Colleges adopt a common course numbering system for all required general education courses and transfer pathway courses. The bill requires each community college campus incorporate the common course numbering system into its course catalog no later than July 1, 2024. In developing the common course numbering system, the bill requires the system be student facing and must ensure comparable courses across all community colleges have the same course number.

(AB 1111 adds Section 66725.5 to the Education Code.)
