A Plan to Transfer into the Engineering Program at Sonoma State University

This document gives details about which courses can be transferred and applied towards the BSEE degree at Sonoma State and presents a 2-year transfer plan for Santa Rosa Junior College students. For general requirements to transfer to SSU, please visit the Admission section of the SSU catalog.

Where are you transferring from?

We are committed to ensure our engineering transfer students complete their EE degrees within a reasonable time by providing them the proper pathway to graduation. Please see the alternative roadmap if you are transferring from one of the following local colleges:

Transferable Courses to Meet BSEE Degree Requirements

The transfer students admitted to SSU and accepted into the BSEE major can transfer up to 70 units of courses to be applied towards the BSEE degree and must complete at least 30 units at Sonoma State as per residency requirement. Transferable courses applicable towards the BSEE degree are those (i)designated for baccalaureate credit by the college or university offering the courses, (ii)completed by the student with acceptable grades, and, (iii)meeting the BSEE curriculum requirements.

Articulation Agreements to Facilitate Transfers

The courses are transferred based on (i)the articulation agreement between the public higher education institutions in California, or, (ii)the articulation agreement between transferring institution and the receiving institution (or departments), if one exists. If an applicable articulation between the transferring institution and SSU does not exist, the student's transcript is evaluated by the Admissions and Records division of SSU for the transfer of GE courses and by the Engineering Science department for the transfer of all other courses. For the existing articulation agreements between the public higher education institutions in California, please visit the website at www.assist.org and/or www.cansystem.org.

Articulation Agreement Between Santa Rosa Junior College (SRJC)
and the Engineering Science (ES) Department

The ES Department has developed a course plan under which the students attending Santa Rosa Junior College can complete requirements of the first two years of the SSU’s BSEE program at SRJC and then transfer into the fifth semester of the program to complete BSEE degree at SSU in the next two years.

CSU Transfer Policy

Students having 60 transferable semester units with a "C" average (2.0) will be eligible to transfer to a California State University providing a minimum of 30 units in GE, including all of Areas A and B4, is completed with grades of C or better.
The students admitted with full certification of completion of 39 units of the 48-unit GE requirement for graduation from the CSU may not be held to additional lower division General Education requirements. For 39-unit GE pattern for full certification and other details, a student should see a counselor at his/her junior college.

LDTP (Lower-Division Transfer Patterns)

The Lower-Division Transfer Patterns (LDTP) project, sponsored by the California State University (CSU) and supported by the California Community Colleges, presents potential transfer students with a set of "road maps" to follow that will ensure appropriate academic preparation for studies at CSU and that will decrease time to graduation once these students enter the CSU. The LDTP for each discipline has a statewide as well as campus-specific components. The statewide component of the LDTP is appropriate for any CSU campus that offers the major and is comprised of general education coursework as well as some courses within the discipline. The campus-specific component identifies discipline related coursework relevant to the major at the specific CSU campus. Together these components for an LDTP discipline will total at least 60 units, the number needed to transfer to CSU as an upper-division student.
