Bachelor of Science in Statistics – MATH Associate Degree for Transfer (ADT) 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 Mathematics. At least 12 units in the major (MATH 226, MATH 227, and MATH 228) 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 taken before 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 Mathematics are not required to fulfill SF State Studies or Complementary Studies requirements.

Statistics Major: 40-43 units

MATH 226, MATH 227, and MATH 228 met in transfer; CSC 210 may have been met in transfer.

  • Core (31-34 units)
  • Guided Electives (9 units) in one of the following areas: Science, Economics, Business: Decision Sciences, or Business: Information Systems. Consult with a department advisor.

University Electives: 2 or More Units

Depends on the number of units transferred, course choices made at the community college, and how transferred units are applied to the requirements above.
