“Will my credits transfer to CSU?”
This is the number one question we get from transfer applicants (it’s pretty commonly asked by freshman applicants taking college courses, too), and we understand why. The answer impacts how long it will take to earn your degree and how much tuition you’ll need to pay.
Getting the information you need in a timely manner is important, so we’ve provided three tools to give you answers — regardless of where you are in the application process
1. Official course review via the CSU Registrar
2. Tentative Transfer Evaluation (TTE)
Additional things to keep in mind
No matter where you are in the transfer process, there are a few important facts to remember:
- To receive CSU transfer credit, courses must be taken at a regionally accredited institution and completed with a grade of C- or better.
- We gladly accept additional types of transfer work, such as study abroad and college work completed during high school. Take advantage of the opportunity to have all of your work counted by including official transcripts when you apply.
- Remember to submit official transcripts or test scores for Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate, and other examination credit you may have earned.
Understanding the ins and outs of the transfer process doesn’t have to be mind-boggling.
