Transfer Credit for Incoming Students

Transfer students have a variety of ways to receive CSULB credits earned through a number of avenues including test credit, transfer credit, military experience credit and workforce training credit.

Test Credit: 
Test Credit Exams Include:  Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate and College Level Examination Program (CLEP). Be aware:  Test credit granted by another institution does not automatically ‘transfer’ to CSULB.

Transfer Credit:
Students generally are granted transfer credit for baccalaureate-level courses successfully completed at regionally accredited colleges and universities. Transfer credit is reviewed by the Office of Enrollment Services and is granted in compliance with applicable national, state, CSU system, and CSULB policies. Approved transfer credit may be applied toward fulfillment of major, minor, general education or elective credit.
