Community College students should meet with a counselor as soon as possible to determine the equivalent courses offered at that institution. Students should complete as many as possible of the lower division requirements listed below, prior to transfer.
Lower Division Course Requirements
Community College Course Equivalents
|In order to be successful in this major you must complete the following articulated courses prior to transfer, earning grades of "C" or better on the first attempt. Students who struggle to achieve this should strongly consider selecting a different major.|
Second Course in English Composition
|(select a course approved in CSU GE Area C2 and articulates to the following course):|
|ENGL 001B Argument and Analysis||Engl 1B Composition and Literature|
ENGL 1BH Honors Composition and Literature
Engl 1BMC Composition and Literature: Multicultural Emphasis
Preparation for the Major:
|General Chemistry Equivalent Transfer Course|
General chemistry for majors that accept only one semester (two quarters) of general chemistry in lieu of CHEM 1A taken at SJSU, rather than a full year of general chemistry.
|Chem 1A General Chemistry I (*)|
Chem 1B General Chemistry II (*)
|MATH 030 Calculus I||Math 5A Analytical Geometry & Calculus I|
|MATH 031 Calculus II||Math 5B Analytical Geometry & Calculus II|
|MATH 032 Calculus III||MATH 5C Analytical Geometry & Calculus III (*)|
|MATH 133A Ordinary Differential Equations|
Community College math courses articulated with SJSU's Math 133A will meet course content requirements for the major but will not receive upper division credit.
|MATH 7 Introduction to Differential Equations (*)|
CONTENT CREDIT ONLY

|CE 095 Theory and Application of Statics||ENGR 35 Statics|
(course must be letter graded)
|EE 098 Introduction to Circuit Analysis||Engr 15 Circuits|
|ENGR 010 Introduction to Engineering||Engr 5 Engineering as a Profession|
Engr 10 Engineering Communication
|MATE 025 Introduction to Materials||Engr 45 Engineering Materials|
|ME 020 Design and Graphics||ENGR 25 Graphics and Design|

ENGR 30 Computer Applications in Engineering
|ME 041 Machine Shop Safety||ENGR 12 Machining Processes|
LDTP Approved Courses (*)
|The following Cabrillo College courses are approved for the following LDTP course descriptors shown on the right.|
|LDTP courses are acceptable "in lieu of" each other.|
|LDTP courses are not necessarily "equivalent" or "identical" in content.|
IMPORTANT TRANSFER INFORMATION:
Prior to transferring to San Jose State University all transfers must earn at least 60 transferable semester units (90 quarter), including the CSU four basic skill courses required for CSU admission eligibility. Within those 60 semester/90 quarter units students are strongly encouraged to complete the following:
1. Lower Division Major Course Requirements (especially for STEM Majors):
Complete as many of the lower division courses required for the major as possible. Many of these courses may be double counted as part of the CSU GE-Breadth 39 semester unit requirements. These requirements are shown above.
2. General Education Requirements:
Complete all the CSU GE Breadth requirements at the community college (39 semester units/58 quarter units). The approved courses for each area can be found at www.ASSIST.org under the link "CSU GE-Breadth Certification Courses" for your college. Many of these courses can be double counted to meet the major requirements shown above, so choose your courses wisely. Please see your college counselor/advisor to review your general education in order to receive FULL OR PARTIAL CERTIFICATION PRIOR TO TRANSFER to San Jose State University.
3. Second Semester English Composition highly recommended:
Complete the second semester English composition course (or equivalent) with a grade of "C" or better prior to registering for the WST and 100W course at SJSU. Approved courses can be found above within the lower division major requirements. Be sure to select this course as part of your CSU GE-Breadth 39 semester unit requirements. Once this course is complete, students are encouraged to take the WST exam at SJSU to avoid delays in enrollment for other SJSU required courses. To register for the WST contact our Testing office at testing.sjsu.edu.
4. American Institutions Requirement (US 1, US 2, and US 3 must be completed):
This requirement is normally 2 courses and can be taken as part of your CSU GE-Breadth 39 semester unit requirements (GE Area D and sometimes Area C). The approved courses can be found at www.ASSIST.org under the link "CSU US History, Constitution, and American Ideals Courses" for your college.
