Transfer Admission Requirements

Admission as a transfer student to SEIE undergraduate (Bachelor's degree) programs is based on fulfilling standard CSU transfer requirements. Entrance requirements can be in progress or planned when you apply, but they must be completed by the end of the Fall or Spring semester preceding enrollment. (Summer and Winter Intersession not included.)

Students must be in good standing at the last institution attended. If you have been disqualified or are on probation, you may need to take extra steps for admission.

  • 60 semester units of transferable college-level work with a C average.
  • 30 of these units must be in general education according to the CSU pattern at a C average, and must include the following:
    • A1 (Written & Oral Analysis/Speech): grade of CR/C- or greater
    • A2 (English Composition): grade of CR/C- or greater
    • A3 (Critical Thinking): grade of CR/C- or greater
    • B4 (Math/Quantitative Reasoning): grade of CR/C- or greater
    • Lab (Liberal Studies @ Napa and @ Solano only); choose either a Physical or a Biological Science
  • Any general education requirements not finished before entrance must be completed in order to graduate.
  • The ASSIST website can help you choose qualifying classes at community colleges, but you should also work with a counselor.
  • BS Business Administration @ College of Marin applicants have additional pre-requisites. Please see the program's Admission page for details.

Pre-Admission Evaluation

Prospective students are strongly encouraged to seek a pre-admission assessment from our dedicated advisor, Susie McFeeters, before submitting an application. You can mail, e-mail, or fax copies of your transcripts to her, and she will evaluate your situation and tell you what you need to do, if anything, in order to fulfill the entrance requirements. She can be reached at 707-664-2601,, fax 707-664-2613. Due to the volume of requests, please allow at least a week for Susie to complete your assessment.

Prospective BS Business Administration @ College of Marin students may also contact Will Coley at, phone 415-457-8811 ext 7769, to set up an appointment.
