Note: This major only requires completion of one semester or two quarters of General Chemistry in lieu of CHEM 1A taken at SJSU.
Either complete two courses from:
PHYS 002A Fundamentals of PhysicsPhys 2A General Physics 1
PHYS 002B Fundamentals of PhysicsPhys 2B General Physics 2
Or complete two courses from:
PHYS 050 General Physics/MechanicsPHYS 4A Physics for Scientists and Engineers
PHYS 051 General Physics/Electricity and MagnetismPHYS 4B Physics for Scientists and Engineers

Business Minor Lower Division Requirements:

BUS2 090 Business StatisticsMath 11 Elementary Statistics

All students must satisfy the following prerequisite (or equivalent) prior to registering for the WST and 100W courses at SJSU {Academic Senate policy S05-8}.

Once the following course requirement is completed (earning a grade of C or better), students should contact to register for the WST exam at SJSU. Passing the WST prior to your first semester at SJSU will prevent delays in registering for upper division courses:
ENGL 001B Composition 2
A "C" or better is required in English 1B (a "C-" is not acceptable).
ENGL 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
2nd English Composition Equivalent Transfer CoursePHIL 2 Critical Reasoning and Analytic Writing
A course articulated to SJSU's English 1B is recommended, however any course approved for the IGETC second semester English composition area would be accepted to meet this requirement (a grade of "C" or better is required).

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

LDTP courses are acceptable "in lieu of" each other.
LDTP courses are not necessarily "equivalent" or "identical" in content.


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 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

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

4. Physical Education Requirement:
