All students are encouraged to attempt FE exam. Those who passed FE prior graduation may waive one technical elective course (3 units).

The new degree progress rule states that transfer students must complete MATH 123, PHYS 151, and CHEM 111B within one year after transfering to CSULB

Note: courses shown in bold are Chemical Engineering core courses. * waived for transfer students

**CHEM 227 (3 units) plus (BIOL 200, 205, OR 211) (4 units) may be substituted by CHEM 220A, 223A, 220B, and 223B (total 8 units). Students taking this alternative route still need one course in GE B1a
