University-Wide Requirements: 9–15 units
- American Institutions (0–6 units): US History, US Government, California State and Local Government requirements if not taken before transfer
- Upper-Division GE, Areas B, C, and D (9 units): Courses required for the major may double-count if approved for UD GE.
- Students entering this major with the AS-T in Early Childhood Education are not required to fulfill SF State Studies requirements.
- Complementary Studies is satisfied by taking the required minimum of 12 units in disciplines other than CAD.

- Concentration (21–23 units)
- Minimum grade of C or better required for all courses in the major.
University Electives: 8 or More units
Depends on course choices made at the community college, how transferred units are applied to the requirements above, and course choices at SF State. Some courses may meet more than one requirement, e.g. both in UD GE and the major.
