Transfer Student Information and TipsBack to Undergraduate Program
Transfer Student Information
Our program has been recently revised to streamline the course
articulation for transfer. This allows more courses taken at
community colleges or other schools to count towards your S.F. State
Computer Science Degree. Please consult
Our transfer advisor is Prof. J. Wong . Our course information is at http://www.cs.sfsu.edu/courses.html. Please refer to these TIPS for more information about your advising and transition into the program.
Expected Programming Knowledge
Students who transfer to our program should have adequate Java experience in case their equivalent courses were not in Java. While we will accept those courses if their content is adequate, we still require a background in Java. Students can attain a Java background by taking a course which should include topics as specified in the resources below:
The main Java tutorials website: http://download.oracle.com/javase/tutorial/index.html.
The equivalents for the following computer science courses may be taken from approved universities and applied to your SFSU CS Degree:
Additionally, the following non-CS courses required for completion of the program may also be transferred from other institutions depending on their respective department's policies.
Please refer to assist.org to see if your institution's equivalent courses will be articulated.
The transfer advisor, James Wong, can be contacted at
