1

ENG 114 can only be taken if you complete Directed Self-Placement (DSP) and select ENG 114; if you choose ENG 104/ENG 105 through DSP you will satisfy A2 upon successful completion of ENG 105 in the second semester; multilingual students may be advised into alternative English courses.

2

To avoid taking additional units, it is recommended that you meet LLD and SF State Studies requirements (AERM, GP, ES, SJ) within your GE or major.

3

GE Area A: Critical Thinking (A3) is satisfied upon completion of ENGR 205 and ENGR 201 or ENGR 213.

4

Students must complete 21 units of upper-division engineering units before registering for ENGR 696.
