Undergraduate Graduation Requirements

The following sections include important graduation requirements for undergraduate studies.

­­Test Requirements

Freshman and transfer applicants who have fewer than 60 semester or 90 quarter units of transferable college credit are strongly encouraged to submit scores, unless exempt (see “Eligibility Index”), from either the ACT or the SAT of the College Board. Persons who apply to an impacted program may be required to submit test scores and should take the test no later than November or December. Test scores also are used for advising and placement purposes. Registration forms and dates for the SAT or ACT are available from school or college counselors or a CSU campus testing office.

Assessment of Academic Preparation and Placement

Summary

As of Fall 2018, students are no longer required to take the Entry Level Mathematics Exam (ELM) or the English Placement Test (EPT). 

Based on the multiple measures described below, students will fall into one of four categories for English and math:

  • Enrollment Category 1: Exempt from A2 and/or B4
  • Enrollment Category 2: Placed into A2 and/or B4
  • Enrollment Category 3: Placed into A2 and/or B4 with support with recommended Early Start
  • Enrollment Category 4: Placed into A2 and/or B4 with support with required Early Start

Details of the scores, enrollment categories, and pathways follow. Summary flow charts and other details can be found at the Developmental Studies website.

Details

The CSU requires that all entering freshmen students be evaluated in terms of their preparation to complete first-year courses in written communication and mathematics/quantitative reasoning. This evaluation will utilize the broadest set of multiple measures including high school grades as well as performance scores on standardized exams such as the ACT or SAT. This evaluation of academic readiness is not a condition for admission to the CSU, but it is an important step for determining the best course placement for entering students.

Successful completion of general education (GE) written communication and mathematics/quantitative reasoning courses in the first year of CSU enrollment establishes a foundation for continuous learning. Unless the requirements have been completed, freshmen shall enroll in GE written communication and mathematics/quantitative reasoning courses appropriate to each student’s major and skill level, as demonstrated by applicable systemwide standards utilized in the review of academic preparation.

Students whose skill assessments indicate academic support will be needed for successful completion of GE in written communication or mathematics/quantitative courses shall enroll in appropriate college-level, baccalaureate credit-bearing courses that strengthen skills development to facilitate achieving the appropriate general education student learning outcomes. Supportive course models may include, among others, co-requisite approaches, supplemental instruction or “stretch” formats that extend a course beyond one academic term. In these approaches, instructional content considered pre-baccalaureate may carry a maximum of one unit and shall be offered concurrently with a college-level, baccalaureate credit-bearing course.

Directed Self-Placement

While all entering undergraduates are required by the CSU to take the English Placement Test (except those with an acceptable exemption), SF State does not use test results to place students into required First-Year Composition classes (these classes are described in the section of the BulletinWritten English Proficiency Requirements”). San Francisco State University believes that with good guidance from us, the student is the best person to choose which First-Year Composition course is the most appropriate place to begin meeting SF State’s Written English Proficiency Requirement. SF State has designed an online Directed Self-Placement (DSP) application that will guide students through the steps necessary to choose their First-Year Composition Course.

All entering undergraduates are required to complete SF State’s online DSP before they attend new student orientation and before they can enroll in their first-year composition classes. The DSP application can be accessed at dsp.sfsu.edu/

Students required to participate in Early Start will complete the online DSP as part of the Early Start English course.

Early Start Program

The Early Start Program serves CSU admitted first-year students who have not demonstrated proficiency in written communication and/or mathematics/quantitative reasoning as determined by systemwide placement standards. Participation in the Early Start Program is required for students needing skills development in these areas; students will be expected to enroll in a written communication course or mathematics/quantitative reasoning course (but not both) during the summer period prior to the start of the fall term. Students required to participate in the Early Start Program may choose to enroll at any CSU campus; the earned baccalaureate credit will be transferred seamlessly to the student’s destination campus.

The goals of the Early Start Program are to:

  • Better prepare students in written communication and mathematics/quantitative reasoning before the start of the fall semester of the freshman year;
  • Add an important and timely assessment tool in preparing students for college; and
  • Improve the opportunity for students to successfully complete their college degrees

The CSU requires students in Enrollment Category 4 to complete an Early Start transition into college and start taking credit-bearing courses before their first term. Students in Enrollment Category 3 are encouraged to enroll in Early Start.

Newly admitted freshman students who are required to complete Early Start will be notified of the requirement and options for completing the program as part of campus communications to newly admitted students. Students enrolled in Early Start English will meet the Directed Self-Placement requirement as part of the Early Start course.

Composition for Multilingual Students Placement Test (CMSPT)

International students will be required to take the CMSPT instead of the DSP. Instructions for completion will be provided to them.

Written English Proficiency Requirements

All students must demonstrate competency in writing as a requirement for graduation. The following information lists the ways available to meet this graduation requirement.

Summary of Written English Proficiency Requirements

Note: Non-native speakers of English may follow a different course sequence to fulfill their Written English Proficiency Requirements, which are described below in the section titled “Written English Proficiency Requirements for Multilingual Students”.

  1. First-Year Composition (GE Area A2, Written English Communication I): Two equivalent pathways satisfy the First-Year Composition Requirement:
    1. Stretch ENG 104/ENG 105 or
    2. ENG 114.
  2. Second-Year Composition (Written English Communication II): Prerequisite is a grade of Credit (CR) or C– or better in Stretch ENG 104/ENG 105 or ENG 114 or equivalent course. ENG 214, or an equivalent course, fulfills the Second-Year Composition Requirement. For freshmen students this requirement also satisfies Written English Communication II​ in General Education.
  3. GWAR: Undergraduate students must complete the CSU Graduation Writing Assessment Requirement (GWAR). Prerequisite is a grade of Credit (CR) or C- or better in ENG 214, or equivalent course.

Written English Proficiency Requirements for Native Speakers of English

First-Year Composition for Native Speakers (GE Area A2)

All newly-admitted undergraduate students who have not yet met the first-year composition requirement must complete Directed Self-Placement to determine the pathway by which they choose to fulfill the Requirement.

Two equivalent pathways satisfy the First-Year Composition Requirement for native speakers of English: Stretch ENG 104/ENG 105 or ENG 114. Either pathway satisfies GE Area A2, Written English Communication I. Students enrolling in stretch English take ENG 104 in the fall and ENG 105 in the spring. Students who enter in spring must take both ENG 104 and ENG 105 concurrently.

Grading in all composition courses will be either ABC/No Credit or Credit/No Credit (CR/NC). A grade of CR or C- or better in ENG 104/ENG 105 or in ENG 114 satisfies the First-Year Composition Requirement. Students who receive credit for these courses will proceed to ENG 214.

Students who receive a grade of NC for ENG 105 must enroll in ENG 114. Students who receive an NC in ENG 104 in the fall term must enroll in both ENG 104 and ENG 105 during the spring term. Students who fail to complete ENG 104 within one year from the time of enrollment are subject to disenrollment from the University. They may return after completing an equivalent to First-Year Composition elsewhere within two consecutive semesters after not meeting this requirement. For more information contact the Developmental Studies Office in ADM 211. Only those students who can demonstrate one of the following are not required to take First-Year Composition at SF State:

  1. A score of 3, 4, or 5 on either the English Language and Composition or English Literature and Composition examinations of the College Board Advanced Placement Program.
  2. A score of 4 or higher on IB Language A – Language and Literature (HL) – English or IB Language A – Literature (HL) – English.
  3. Completion of an equivalent college-level course elsewhere of 3 semester or 4 quarter units with a grade of credit (CR) or C– or better.

Second-Year Composition for Native Speakers/ Written Communication II

A Written English Communication II course (e.g., ENG 214) should be taken prior to completion of 60-semester units by all students who have not received credit for an equivalent test or course.

Successful completion of ENG 104 – ENG 105 or ENG 114 is a prerequisite to all Written English Communication II courses. Area A2 and Written English Communication II courses may not be taken concurrently. ABC/NC grading is used in both courses.

Students who have received scores of 3, 4, or 5 on the College Board Advanced Placement Examination in English will receive six units of college credit and satisfy the ENG 114/A2 and ENG 214/Written English Communication II​ requirements. Students who have received scores of 4 or higher on IB Language A – Language and Literature (HL) – English or IB Language A – Literature (HL) – English will also receive six units of college credit and satisfy the ENG 114/A2 and ENG 214/Written English Communication II​ requirements.

Upper-Division Written English Proficiency Requirements for Native Speakers

Undergraduate students must complete the CSU Graduation Writing Assessment Requirement (GWAR). After passing courses in in Written English Communiction I/A2 and Written English Communication II/ENG 214 with a grade of CR or C- or higher, students then are eligible to fulfill GWAR.

Majors require a GWAR-designated course or offer one as an elective in the major. Click GWAR courses for an updated list of approved courses by major. Biology majors should consult biology.sfsu.edu/content/gwar. Students should consult with their major department if they are uncertain how their department’s GWAR designated course(s) might be used in their major program. All majors have at least one GWAR course, but since the adoption of GWAR courses is ongoing, options for completing GWAR may change. Note: Students who passed JEPET prior to Fall 2013 have satisfied the GWAR requirement.

Written English Proficiency Requirements for Multilingual Students

Non-native speakers of English must take the

  • Multilingual Students Placement Test (CMSPT) before they can enroll in any Composition for Multilingual Students (CMS) courses.

The CMSPT is an SF State requirement for placement in all CMS English courses. Placement in CMS courses is determined by the CMS coordinator solely on the basis of CMSPT scores, not on the basis of any course work or examinations taken at other colleges or universities. Consult the Testing Center for CMSPT examination times and dates.

Non-native speakers of English who are eligible to take Composition for Multilingual Students (CMS) courses must complete the sequence of CMS courses listed below as substitutes for the ENG 114 and ENG 214 requirements. In order to enroll in a CMS course, students must first take the SF State Composition for Multilingual Students Placement Test (CMSPT) and receive a qualifying score for that course. A student who satisfactorily completes a CMS course may proceed to the next level CMS course without retaking the CMSPT. Non-native speakers of English may complete the GE Oral Communication requirement by taking ENG 210.

Students on foreign visas and permanent residents may substitute the following courses for the ENG 114 and ENG 214 requirements.

Majors require a GWAR-designated course or offer one as an elective in the major. Click here for an updated list of approved GWAR courses. Biology majors should consult biology.sfsu.edu/content/gwar. Students should consult with their major department if they are uncertain how their department’s GWAR designated course(s) might be used in their major program. All majors have at least one GWAR course, but since the adoption of GWAR courses is ongoing, options for completing GWAR may change. Note: students who passed JEPET prior to Fall 2013 have satisfied the GWAR requirement.

U.S. History and Government Requirement

The California State University (CSU) system requires that all graduates demonstrate an understanding of the historical development of American institutions and ideals, the Constitution of the United States, the operation of representative democratic government under that Constitution, and the processes of California's state and local governments. Because this is a competency requirement, it may be satisfied by passing examinations, or by taking courses, or by a combination of examinations and courses. In unusual circumstances, students may be able to demonstrate competency in other ways as well.

Transfer students from other California institutions may complete the U.S. History and Government Requirement prior to transfer. Public colleges and universities in California typically cover the entire requirement, often called American Institutions, in two courses in the same way as SF State. However, transfer students from colleges and universities outside of California or from private institutions within California or students who have AP or CLEP credit in U.S. government usually have not studied California government and will therefore need either to pass the California state and local government examination (see below) or to take a course to complete the California State and Local Government component of the U.S. History and Government requirement. Students should consult their Degree Progress Report (DPR) or their Advanced Standing Evaluation (ASE) to verify completion of the entire requirement.

Students who believe that they can demonstrate a proficient understanding of any part of this requirement based on other coursework they have taken or on their experience (e.g., in state and local government) should consult with the Undergraduate Advising Center.

Students starting SF State as first-time college students in Fall 2014 or later, will satisfy this requirement by completion of Areas D2 and D3 of General Education. Transfer students who need to complete the requirement at SF State should choose from the lists below.

Satisfying the U.S. History and Government Requirement by Examination

Advanced Placement (AP) Examinations

A score of 3 or higher on the Advanced Placement examination in U.S. history will satisfy the U.S. history requirement. Students who have achieved a score of 3 or higher on the Advanced Placement examination in U.S. Government and Politics will satisfy the U.S. government component of the requirement. For more information, go to the College Board website. Satisfactory completion of AP examinations also carries college credit. See Advanced Placement Test Scores page. No AP examination will satisfy the requirement in California state and local government.

College Level Examination Program (CLEP) Examinations

A passing score (50) on the CLEP exam in either U.S. History I or U.S. History II will satisfy the U.S. history requirement. A passing score (50) on the CLEP exam in American Government will satisfy the U.S. government component of this requirement. For more information, go to the College Board website. Satisfactory completion of CLEP examinations will also carry college credit. See College-level Examination Program Test Scores page. No CLEP examination will satisfy the requirement in California state and local government.

SF State Equivalency Examination in California State and Local Government

This requirement may be met by achieving a passing score on an SF State equivalency examination. This examination may be taken only once. For information about this examination and preparation for it, contact the Testing Center.

Students may submit any combination of examinations and courses to satisfy this requirement.

Satisfying the U.S. History and Government Requirement by Taking Courses

Students who begin at SF State as first-time college students will complete the American Institutions requirements by completing Areas D2 and D3 of the General Education program. Transfer students who have completed nine units in Area D but still need to complete the American Institutions requirement may choose courses in D2 and D3. Please note, there are a few courses that meet all three requirements, and these can be taken by transfer students who have already met all nine units of Area D.  Transfer students missing the U.S. History requirement or the U.S. and California Government requirement may also select an upper division course approved as an “Additional US History” or “Additional US and California Government” course (see list below). There are a few courses that can meet all three requirements (see below).  Transfer students who need to fulfill ONLY the California Government component of the requirement may take a course from the CSLG list below.
