To Do at SF State:

Enough total units to reach 120 minimum for graduation; 40 units minimum at the upper division level; to include the following:

University-wide requirements: 9-12 units                                    

  • ENG 214 or equivalent course (0-3 units) if not taken before transfer
  • American Institutions (0-6 units) - US History, US Government, California State and Local Government. See next bullet if not completed before transfer.
  • Upper Division GE, areas B, C and D (9 units) – UD-B met in major (see grid above).
  • Students entering this major with the AS-T in NUTR are not required to fulfill SF State Studies or Complementary Studies requirements.

Nutrition and Dietetics major – Concentration in Foods and Community Nutrition:  27 - 31 units

University electives: 12 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. in both UD GE and the major.
