Transfer credits

Candidates may transfer up to 6 graduate credits (two courses), provided those credits will be no more than 7 years old at the time of the candidate’s proposed graduation, and that they fit the general focus of the program. Candidates with credits that are older than 7 years may be able to do some additional work to demonstrate that they have been current in the field that the credit represent. Candidates will need to submit a syllabus or a course description of any requested transferable credits.

Pre-Admission Disclosure for Credential Programs

Admission into programs leading to licensure and credentialing does not guarantee that students will obtain a license or credential. Licensure and credentialing requirements are set by agencies that are not controlled by or affiliated with the CSU and requirements can change at any time. For example, licensure or credentialing requirements can include evidence of the right to work in the United States (e.g., social security number or tax payer identification number) or successfully passing a criminal background check. Students are responsible for determining whether they can meet licensure or credentialing requirements. The CSU will not refund tuition, fees, or any associated costs, to students who determine subsequent to admission that they cannot meet licensure or credentialing requirements. Information concerning licensure and credentialing requirements are available from Department of Education and Leadership Credential Analysts: Christy Hanselka (831) 582-3638 or Chris Villanueva (831) 582-3613, 100 Campus Ctr., Bldg. 3, Seaside, CA 93955.
