Bachelor of Science in Business Administration: Concentration in General Business – Business Administration Associate Degree for Transfer (ADT) with 18 Lower-Division Units (2021) Roadmap

This is a sample pathway for students who transfer to San Francisco State University in the current Bulletin year with an AS-T in Business Administration (VERSION 2.0, established Spring 2021). 18 units in the major [ACCT 100/ACCT 101, DS 110, DS 212, ECON 101/ECON 102] and all lower division GE requirements have been satisfied. Additional units in the major may have been satisfied. Check with a major advisor about the most appropriate course sequence. Degree completion guaranteed in 60 units; see the Associate Degree for Transfer (ADT) section for more information.

To Do at SF State:

Enough total units to reach 120 minimum for graduation; 30 units minimum at the upper division level; to include the following:

University-Wide Requirements: 9-15 units                                    

  • American Institutions (0–6 units): US History, US Government, California State and Local Government requirements if not met pre-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 the major with the AS-T in Business Administration with a concentration in General Business are not required to fulfill SF State Studies requirements.

BS in Business Administration: Concentration in General Business major:  48-51 units

ACCT 100/ACCT 101, DS 110, DS 212, ECON 101/ECON 102 met in transfer.

  • Prerequisites (0-3 units):  ISYS 263 if not met in transfer. See Note 1 regarding advisor approval for possibly applying these units to the Concentration requirement.
  • Upper-division core courses for Business majors (27 units)
  • Concentration (21 units) – Two non-LFCoB upper-division courses are permitted as substitutes for two of the seven with advisor approval. Up to two of the non-LFCoB courses prefix can be used to fulfill the four different prefixes requirement.

University Electives: 3 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 in the major.
