General Education (Transfer Only)

This section only applies to transfer applicants.

As an Upper Division or Associate Degree for Transfer applicant, you must complete four General Education courses with a grade of C- or better before being able to transfer to any CSU program. Lower Division Transfer applicants must fulfill Written Communication and Math Concepts/Quantitative Reasoning with a grade of C- or better.

Note that if you do not meet the general education requirements, you will see a warning message when you submit your application. You can still submit, but you must acknowledge that you do not meet the requirements.

In order to match the credits you earned from passing a Pass/Fail course, you must enter the course on the College Coursework page and include a grade of P.

In order to match the credits you earned from a standardized test (i.e., Advanced Placement (AP), International Baccalaureate (IB), or College Level Examination Program (CLEP)), enter the test information and score on the Standardized Tests page. For details on which standardized tests may fulfill the general education requirements, reference the External Exam Credit list.
