San José State University -to- College of San Mateo

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

A grade of "C-" or better is required for courses being used to meet any requirement in this major, including courses in preparation for the major.

Preparation for the Major:

CS 046A Introduction to ProgrammingCIS 255 (CS1) Programming Methods: JAVA (*)
   OR
CIS 278 (CS1) Programming Methods I: C++ (*)
CS 046B Introduction to Data StructuresCIS 256 (CS2) Data Structures: Java (*)
   OR
CIS 279 (CS2) Data Structures: C++ (*)
PHYS 050 General Physics/MechanicsPHYS 250 Physics with Calculus I
PHYS 051 General Physics/Electricity and MagnetismPHYS 260 Physics with Calculus II

Lower Divison Requirements of the Major:

MATH 030 Calculus IMath 251 Calculus with Analytic Geometry I (*)
   OR
MATH 030P Calculus I with PrecalculusNo Current Equivalent
MATH 031 Calculus IIMath 252 Calculus with Analytic Geometry II
MATH 032 Calculus IIIMath 253 Calculus with Analytic Geometry III (*)
MATH 042 Discrete MathematicsMath 268 Discrete Mathematics

Additional Major Requirements:

MATH 129A Linear Algebra IMATH 270 Linear Algebra (*)
CONTENT CREDIT ONLY
Note: Community college math course articulated with SJSU's MATH 129A will meet course content requirement for the major but will not receive upper division credit.

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: testing.sjsu.edu 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
No Current Equivalent
or
ENGL 001B Composition 2ENGL 110 Composition, Literature and Critical Thinking
   OR
ENGL 165 Advanced Composition

LDTP Approved Courses (*)

The following College of San Mateo courses are approved for the following LDTP course descriptors shown on the right.
CIS 255Programming Concepts and Methodology I
CIS 278Programming Concepts and Methodology I
CIS 256Programming Concepts and Methodology II
CIS 279Programming Concepts and Methodology II
Math 251Single Variable Calculus I
Math 253Multivariable Calculus
MATH 270Introduction to Linear Algebra
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.
