Fall 2020 Transfer Major Specific Requirements - COE

These criteria will be used for Fall 2020 and Spring 2021 Transfer admission consideration only.
Admission criteria are subject to change for future admission cycles. See ASSIST to determine the courses offered at California institutions which will satisfy the specific course requirements.

College of Engineering

Admission to all majors at CSULB is competitive as CSULB continues to have more qualified applicants than available new student spaces. All transfer students must declare a major when submitting their application. Review Transfer Application and Admissions eligibility for details.  To review the detailed major specific requirements select the major below. If a major is highly impacted it will be noted next to the name of the major and additional supplemental criteria and requirements are indicated in the major specific details.

How will students be considered for admission?

  • Except for "Highly Impacted" majors, CSU eligible applicants who are considered   "local"  based on their high school of graduation or their military veteran status will be offered admission if they meet the major specific minimum cumulative GPA and required lower division preparation.
  • Other CSU eligible applicants who have met the major specific minimum cumulative GPA and the minimum required lower division preparation will be admitted on a space available basis based on their cumulative GPA and the additional preparation courses completed if specified in the criteria.
  • If space is available after all students meeting the minimum major GPA and preparation have been accommodated, then CSU eligible students without the minimum major preparation will be considered.
  • Students admitted to the major who have not completed the additional recommended transfer requirements or the additional CSULB requirements must complete them in their first year at CSULB.

BE AWARE:  For Spring term admission, coursework and unit minimums must be completed no later than the prior Summer term.

Associate Degree for Transfer (ADT) recipients: The Associate Degree for Transfer (ADT) curriculum is used in lieu of the major specific degree requirements. We strongly encourage students to complete both the recommended and required courses as CSULB remains highly competitive in our admissions process. Under current CSU guidelines, the cumulative GPA will be increased by 0.1 and this ‘calculated GPA’ will be applied in the ranking of applicants. Please see the Associate Degree for Transfer (ADT) for a complete list of requirements and additional information on how the ADT will be used in the competitive ranking process.
