How to Transfer to California State University

For 1988 and later, high school graduates who were not eligible to enter CSU directly from high school must complete the following:

  1. 60 or more transferable units with a 2.0 ("C") overall grade point average.
  2. One course in each of the following four areas with a "C" or better in each course:
    - A-1 Oral Communications
    - A-2 Written Communications
    - A-3 Critical Thinking
    - B-4 Mathematics
  3. A total of at least 30 units in general education areas A, B, C, and D (including the courses above) with an overall transferable GPA of 2.0.

Deadline
Application filing begins in October for fall admission, and in August for spring admission. Some universities accept applications after the first filing month.  Please use the links below to view CSU's and UC's that are admitting students for a particular term.

Although transfers do not require an Associate’s Degree, it is easy to complete one while preparing to transfer. See the AA/AS Degree Requirements sheet available in the Counseling Center, the college catalog or student guidebook.

Helpful Hints
- Make regular contact with a counselor to monitor your transfer progress.
- Many courses other than the ones listed will transfer to CSU. The units from those other courses will count toward the 60 units required to transfer as a junior. Check the catalog for the transfer status of any course.
- CSU will accept a maximum of 70 community college units (excludes credit earned via AP and CLEP).
- Check with the counseling staff for other courses needed for your major. In many cases, it will be to your advantage to complete all pre-major requirements as well as general education requirements before you transfer, even if this exceeds 70 units.
