Residence Requirements

Residence is not about being a California resident. It refers to the requirements you have to meet in order to be considered an SDSU "resident." You must be an SDSU resident to earn your degree from SDSU.

To be an SDSU resident, you must:

  1. Complete a minimum of 30 total units at SDSU. Twenty four of those units must be upper division units (numbered 300-599).
  2. Complete at least half of the upper division units required by your major at SDSU. This requirement can be waived by the major department, but in no case shall the unit total be fewer than twelve upper division units.
  3. If you elect to (or are required to) complete a minor, you must complete at least six upper division units in the minor at SDSU.
  4. Complete at least nine units of General Education at SDSU.
