Admissions

Fall 2017 Transfer Admission:
Preparation for the Major

Transfer applicants, with the exception of nursing transfers, must complete all major preparation courses listed in the SDSU General Catalog by the end of the spring term prior to fall admission. Upper-division nursing transfer applicants must complete all nursing prerequisite requirements by the end of fall 2016.

For fall 2017 admission, follow the fall 2017 course and GPA requirements listed on ASSIST or the Transfer Admission Planner (TAP). Graduation requirements may be different based on the catalog in effect at the time you enroll at SDSU. If a major preparation course is not offered at your college, you should take it at another local community college, college, or via Cross Enrollment or Open University at SDSU by the deadlines above.

A Note about Majors

You must choose a major when you apply to SDSU. All majors are competitive, meaning every major has more applicants than available slots (the CSU calls this impaction). Transfer students are admitted based on their intended major for a bachelor's degree at SDSU. Therefore, you will not be able to change your major as an applicant or admitted student.
