Transfer students from local community colleges should refer to the Community Colleges Equivalency Chart. Your advisor can help you determine these equivalencies, as well as give the required approval. Transfer courses are not officially accepted for use toward the major or as prerequisites until the Program receives transcripts. Student copies of transcripts are acceptable for the Department if they have the official seal, but official school transcripts are required by CSUF for graduation evaluation.
