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.

2

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.

3

Consider taking a class combined with a laboratory or a separate lab to fulfill B3 if not already satisfied.
