Students planning to transfer to a four-year college or university should complete courses specific to the transfer institution of choice. University requirements vary from institution to institution and are subject to change. Therefore, it is important to verify transfer major preparation and general education requirements through consultation with a counselor in either the Counseling Center or Transfer Center. See catalog Transfer Courses Information section for further information.

To earn an associate degree, additional general education and graduation requirements must be completed.

The program outlined fulfills the requirements for San Diego State University and the California State University system.
