Coulomb form factors of C4 transitions in even-even N= Z sd-shell nuclei ( $\chem{^{{20}}Ne}$, $\chem{^{{24}}Mg}$, $\chem{^{{28}}Si}$ and $\chem{^{{32}}S}$) are discussed taking into account higher-energy configurations outside the sd-shell model space which are called core polarization effects. Higher configurations are taken into account through a microscopic theory, which allows particle-hole excitations from the 1 s and 1 p shells core orbits and also from the 2s1d-shell orbits to the higher allowed orbits with excitations up to 4 $\hbar
\omega $ . The effect of core polarization is found essential in both the transition strengths and momentum transfer dependence of form factors, and gives a remarkably good agreement with the measured data with no adjustable parameters. The calculations are based on the Wildenthal interaction for the sd-shell model space and on the modified surface delta interaction (MSDI) for the core polarization effects.
