Shared Unique Number System of Arizona (SUN)

About SUN

The Shared Unique Number (SUN) System is a college course numbering system designed to help students locate and enroll in courses that have direct equivalents for transfer among Arizona's public community colleges and three state universities.

Courses in the SUN System have a unique three-letter prefix and four-digit course number that represents direct course equivalency at all Arizona public community colleges and universities.  Each institution retains its original course numbers but uses the SUN to indicate commonality.

The first phase of the SUN project includes 71 Arizona General Education Curriculum (AGEC) and common major courses.  Additional courses for phase two are being reviewed by college chief academic officers for inclusion in the system.

SUN course numbers will appear in course schedules and catalogs by January 2012.  College transcripts will also list SUN courses.

Senate Bill 1186, which passed into law in 2010, mandated the creation of a shared numbering system to identify courses that transfer from community colleges to universities toward a baccalaureate degree.
