  1. English Placement Test (EPT): All newly-admitted undergraduate students must take the California State University English Placement Test (CSU-EPT) prior to their first semester of matriculated attendance at SF State, except those with an approved EPT or course exemption listed in the University Bulletin. Non-native speakers of English must also take the Composition for Multilingual Students Placement Test (CMSPT) prior to enrollment.
  2. First Year Composition: Three equivalent pathways satisfy the First Year Composition Requirement: Integrated Reading-Writing (ENG 104-105 course sequence), Composition for Multilingual Students (CMS) or ENG 114. See the Undergraduate Graduation Requirements section of the Bulletin for specific course requirements and prerequisites.
  3. Second Year Composition: Prerequisite is grade of Credit (CR) or C- or better in ENG 104-105 sequence, ENG 114, or equivalent. ENG 214, or an equivalent course, fulfills the GE Segment I, Written Communication requirement.

General Requirements

Freshman Student Pattern

  1. In each Segment II Area, (PBS, BSS, and HCA), students must complete at least 9 units towards the minimum 27 units.
  2. In each Segment II Area (PBS, BSS, and HCA), students must select courses from at least two different departments. That is, at least three units of the nine-unit minimum must have a different departmental prefix. Students are not held to completion of the specific category requirements within each Segment II Area, except as required in the Physical and Biological Sciences Area.
  3. Within Segment II, students must complete one course that is designated as fulfilling the American Ethnic and Racial Minorities (AERM) requirement and one course that is designated as fulfilling the Lifelong Development (LLD) requirement. Some courses have been approved to satisfy both requirements.

Transfer Student Pattern

  1. In each Segment II Area (i.e., PBS, BSS, and HCA), students must complete a minimum of nine units, but are not held to completion of the specific category requirements within each Segment II Area, except as required in the Physical and Biological Sciences Area.
  2. Within each Segment II Area, students must select courses from at least two different departments. That is, at least three units of the nine-unit minimum must have a different departmental prefix.
  3. Within Segment II, students must complete one course that is designated as fulfilling the Lifelong Development (LLD) requirement. While transfer students are not required to complete the American Ethnic and Racial Minorities (AERM) requirement, they are encouraged to select courses that address this important area.
  4. Students must complete a minimum of 27 units in Segment II. Students on the six-unit system pattern for the Physical and Biological Sciences Area must make up any unit deficiencies in this Area by selecting additional course work in Segment II.

 

Physical and Biological Sciences Area – PBS (9 units)

Category A: Physical Sciences;
Category B: Biological Sciences;
Category C: Integrative Science

Specific Requirements

Freshman Student Pattern

  1. Students must complete nine units in the Physical and Biological Sciences Area.
  2. Students must complete one course in Category A (three units minimum), one course in Category B (three units minimum), and a third course in either Category A, B, or C, if necessary in order to complete nine units minimum.
  3. No more than six of the nine minimum units may have the same departmental prefix.
  4. At least one course designated L/F (laboratory or fieldwork) must be selected.

Transfer Student Pattern

  1. Students must complete one course in Category A (three units minimum), one course in Category B (three units minimum), and a third course in either Category A, B, or C. A third course is not required of students whose ASE or DARS indicates rights to the six-unit system pattern for the Physical and Biological Sciences Area. However, students on the six-unit system pattern must make up any deficiencies in the 27-unit minimum for Segment II by selecting additional course work in Segment II.
  2. At least one course must fulfill the laboratory or fieldwork (L/F) requirement.
