Upper Division Transfer Requirements

If you will have at least 60 semester or 90 quarter transferable units completed by the time you enter a CSU, you are considered an upper-division transfer applicant. To make admission decisions, CSU admissions offices look at three factors:

  • Your college grades
  • The college coursework you have completed, especially in general education, including at least one course in English Composition, one course in oral communication, one course in critical thinking and one course in quantitative reasoning (math)
  • Whether you are in good standing at the last college or university attended

Obviously, the better you prepare at your current and prior colleges, the more likely you will meet admission requirements at your first-choice CSU campus.

Please be aware that most CSU campuses do not admit lower-division transfer students.
