Transfer of Credit Policy | Transfer Policies of CSU Campuses
- Authority for decisions regarding the transfer of undergraduate credits is delegated to each Calfornia State University (CSU) campus. Most commonly, college-level credits earned from an institution of higher education accredited by a regional accrediting agency recognized by the United States Department of Education are accepted for transfer to campuses of the CSU.
- General Education requirements are the same for all CSU campuses, so California community college articulations of general education courses (about one-third of degree requirements) are handled centrally and accessed at www.assist.org.
- Campuses may enter into articulation agreements on either a course-to-course or program-to-program basis. Such articulations are common between CSU campuses and any or all of the California community colleges but may exist between CSU campuses and other institutions. Established CSU/CCC articulations may be found on www.assist.org.
- No more than 70-semester units may be transferred to a CSU campus from an institution that does not offer bachelor's degrees or their equivalents, e.g., community colleges. In addition, given the university's 30-unit residency requirement, no more than 90 total units may be transferred into the university from all sources.
SF State requires that all students provide proof of immunization against Measles, Rubella, and Hepatitis B (if 18 or younger) before being allowed to register for classes.
Students who were enrolled in a California public school for the seventh grade or higher on or after July 1, 1999, will not have to provide proof of immunization.
For complete information concerning immunization requirements, please visit the Student Health Services website.
