I think some of the more cogent comments are still applicable. In particular, it is all about accreditation and program requirements and, now, Learning Outcomes. It will only transfer as an elective if it is not a required course for the major chosen by the transfering student. (Calculus is an elective for an English Lit major if the minimum math requirement has been met, and I am not making up that example.) It will only transfer as a general education course if it meets a well-defined standard for same, either individually or as part of a block articulation agreement.
To go with your example, but link it into our system, you would need to have that freshman class be something like an intro to sociology course that has sufficient content to be accepted as a general education social sociology (or social science) class. Can your faculty figure out a way to fit a bit of political science or psychology into a sociology curriculum? Or use college as an example of a social system? I don't see why not. It cannot have an interdisciplinary title, however, and it must fit into a common niche at the schools your students attend.
And remember, even if it is ignored, it will be valuable if it is effective. If you can document that it achieves its desired outcome of producing college students who do well in their classes, your students will want to take it even if it is just an "elective" somewhere else. After all, they want to succeed.
Emphatic emphasis here: A "free elective" at the CC level is not necessrily "wasted". Your regular use of the term seems to reflect a fear that your classes are substandard in some fields. Most of the math classes and some of the science classes taken by my students are classified as an elective at my CC, but they transfer as required courses for their major. And, I might add, the terminology at the CC level frequently disturbs them. They are quite fearful that a class that shows up as an "elective" in our degree tracking system will not count as "science" or "math" after they transfer. They are afraid that any class that pushes them over the 60 credit "limit" will be ignored when they transfer. Both can lead to bad decisions being made and are not well addressed in our advising system.
