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.

Note: SDSU and other transfer institutions will not grant credit for graduation for any lower-division courses to students who have graduated from a high school in a Spanish-speaking country.

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