Shared Unique Number (SUN) System
The SUN System is a college course numbering system designed to help Arizona students plan their education and ensure successful transfer of course credits.

Enrolling in SUN courses is an easy way to plan your university transfer and save time and money while pursuing your education.

The SUN System is a special bank of courses, but tens of thousands of other Arizona college courses also transfer-- check the
Course Equivalency Guide to search for additional transferrable courses. It is also important to check with your college advisor for more information on course transfer and transfer programs. Please be aware that your course may transfer but you should check with your advisor to make sure it applies to your degree as well.

For more details, review the
SUN System FAQ Page.
SUN Course Example
SUN courses 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.

For example:
Financial accounting has several different prefixes and numbers at the community colleges and universities (see the table below). In the SUN System, all of the courses will share a unique number and a single prefix: SUN# MAT 1151. This unique number/prefix indicates course equivalency at all institutions! When you enroll in a SUN course you know that your credit will be accepted at any Arizona college.
