WST Prerequisite:

Beginning Fall 2014 the prerequisite for the WST is the completion of the CSU GE A3 with a grade of C or better. All students are strongly encouraged to complete a second English composition course as part of their lower division GE prior to transferring to SJSU (either to meet CSU GE Area A3 or C2). In doing this students will be more prepared to pass the WST and 100W course at SJSU.
Once the following recommended course has been completed with a grade of C or better, students should contact our testing office: to register for the WST exam at SJSU (passing the WST prior to your first semester at SJSU will prevent delays in registration for upper division courses):
2nd English Composition/Critical Thinking Equivalent Transfer Course
any course approve for the IGETC Critical Thinking/Second semester English composition 1B area is highly recommended
PHIL 2 Critical Reasoning and Analytic Writing
ENGL 001B Composition 2ENGL 1B Introduction to the Study of Literature
ENGL 1BH Honors Introduction to the Study of Literature
ENGL 3 Critical Reading and Writing
ENGL 3H Honors Critical Reading and Writing

LDTP Approved Courses (*)

The following Fresno City College courses are approved for the following LDTP course descriptors shown on the right.
Chem 1AGeneral Chemistry for Science Majors Sequence, with Lab
CHEM 1BGeneral Chemistry for Science Majors Sequence, with Lab
Math 5ASingle Variable Calculus Sequence
Econ 40Principles of Microeconomics
Econ 40HPrinciples of Microeconomics
CSCI 40Programming Concepts and Methodology I
CSCI 40JProgramming Concepts and Methodology I
LDTP courses are acceptable "in lieu of" each other.
LDTP courses are not necessarily "equivalent" or "identical" in content.


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 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

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 under the link "CSU US History, Constitution, and American Ideals Courses" for your college.
