SJSU ARTICULATION AGREEMENT
Lower Division Requirements
Fall 2013 - Spring 2014

BS - Kinesiology

San José State University -to- CSU, Pomona

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

Note: The BS Kinesiology (Individual Studies area of study) accepts the AA-T in Kinesiology (SB 1440 degree) for transfer. We recommend transfers complete the following articulated courses when course choices for the AA-T in Kinesiology are available. We strongly encourage students to take courses which clear the American Institution requirement and 2nd semester/quarter of English composition as part of their CSU GE or IGETC requirements for the AA-T degree (doing so will increase greater choice in the 60 units of SJSU course work to be taken after transfer).

Listed below are lower division course requirements necessary for: BS - Kinesiology with areas of study in Adapted Physical Activity, Pre-Professional, Exercise and Fitness Specialist, Movement Science, Societal Studies, Sport Management, or Individualized Studies. A minimum passing grade of "C-" in all major courses is required for all kinesiology majors.

A course articulated to SJSU's English 1B is recommended, however any course approved for the IGETC second semester composition area would be accepted to meet this requirement (a grade of "C" or better is required).


IMPORTANT TRANSFER INFORMATION:

Prior to transferring to San José State University all transfers must earn at least 60 transferable semester units (90 quarter). Within those 60 semester/90 quarter units students are strongly encouraged to complete the following:

1. 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 José State University.

2. Second Semester English Composition:
Complete the second semester English composition course (or equivalent) as it is a prerequisite to registering for the WST and 100W courses at SJSU. Students must earn a grade of "C" or better in this course (a "C-" is not acceptable). 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.

3. 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.

4. Physical Education Requirement:
Two courses are required and must include at least two different activities. Completion of these courses will clear the graduation requirement at SJSU.

5. Lower Division Major Course Requirements:
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.
