Message for Student Planning to Transfer to the California State University System at Junior Standing

The California State University System has notified all California Community Colleges of its intent to enforce its policy pertaining to students who intend to transfer to any CSU campus at junior standing. The California State University Trustees have directed CSU campuses to come into compliance with existing CSU policy that permits the admission only of those junior and senior transfer students who are eligible to enter the CSU directly out of high school or who have completed GE-Breadth requirements in English language (at least 9 semester units) and mathematics (typically 3 semester units).

It is important that Delta students be aware of the requirements as, in some cases, students may need a semester or two to take the prerequisite courses necessary to enroll in GE mathematics. If you plan to transfer to the CSU, please note the following requirements. Check with a counselor if you have any questions about your individual transfer status.

Students who plan to enroll at a CSU campus, and who did not meet first-time freshman admission requirements at high school graduation, are required to complete the following to meet junior standing at transfer: a grade-point average of 2.0 or better in a minimum of 56 transferable semester units; within the minimum 56 transferable semester units, a minimum of 30 semester units selected from CSU's General Education-Breadth requirements or Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) with a grade of "C" or better in each course; and the completion of the Communication in the English Language and Critical Thinking and Mathematics requirements of the CSU General Education pattern or communication and mathematics requirements of the IGETC pattern, whichever you have chosen to follow.

The English, Oral Communication, and Critical Thinking requirements may be satisfied as follows:

(CSU) English 1A, And Communication Studies 1A, And English 1B, 1D or Philosophy 30

(IGETC) English 1A, And Communication Studies 1A, And English 1D

The Mathematics requirement may be satisfied as follows:

(CSU) Any one of the following courses: Mathematics 1, 2, 10, 12, 13, 17A, 20, 30, 31, 36, or
Psychology 12

(IGETC) Any one of the following courses: Mathematics 1+, 2, 12, 13+, 20, 36, or
Psychology 12

+Transfer credit may be limited by CSU or UC or both.

Check your transfer eligibility with a counselor, or refer to the CSU General Education pattern or the IGETC pattern in the current Schedule of Classes or the current College Catalog for specific course requirements.
