*If needed, select GE Upper Division courses that also satisfy: (1) IC: Information Competence, (2) GE Comparative Cultural Studies, and/or (3) GE Upper Division Title 5 American History Institutions and Ideals and/or GE Upper Division Title 5 US Constitution and California State and Local Government.

**Students may choose CHEM 101/L (4/1) as their additional science course with lab. However, it will add one unit to the first semester total and may bring total units after transfer to 61.

***Senior COMP Electives: 400- or 500-level COMP courses (not 450, 480/L, 490/L, 491L, 494 or 499). May include MATH 481A. Students who have completed any of these lower division requirements prior to transfer (COMP 282, MATH 262, PHIL 230, additional science with lab) will be required to take 15 units of Senior COMP Electives. Students who need all of these lower division requirements after transfer at CSUN can take COMP 496 (2 units) plus 12 units Senior COMP Electives for total 14 units in order to finish with no more than 60 units after transfer. No CSUN grade lower than a “C-” will be accepted for courses required in the Computer Science program.
