Students with this degree will receive priority admission with junior status to the California State University system. The Associate in Science in Nutrition and Dietetics for Transfer is comprised of lower division coursework typically required by CSU institutions. Students must complete the following Associate Degree for Transfer requirements (Pursuant to SB1440, §66746):

  • 60 semester or 90 quarter CSU-transferable units
  • the California State University-General Education- Breadth pattern (CSU GE-Breadth); OR the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) pattern
  • a minimum of 18 semester or 27 quarter units in the major or area of emphasis as determined by the community college district
  • obtain a minimum grade point average (GPA) of 2.0
  • earn a grade of C or better in all courses required for the major or area of emphasis

Upon successful completion of the Associate in Science in Nutrition and Dietetics for Transfer degree requirements, students will be guaranteed admission to the CSU system with junior status and will not have to repeat lower division coursework.

Each California State University may have slightly different requirements for transfer so it is critical for students to work with their counselors to develop individual academic plans.

1If BIOL 430 is selected, BIOL 431 must also be selected as the second course taken. If STAT 300 is not selected, students are advised to take this course as their CSU GE Breadth or IGETC Mathematics/Quantitative Reasoning requirement, as it is articulated to nutrition/dietetics majors at several California State universities.
