Transfer Agreements

Program to Program

To assist students in the transfer process, SDSU has partnered with technical institutes, community colleges and other universities to provide program-to-program articulation agreements.  While we make every attempt to keep agreements current, it is possible that program requirements change and thus, these should be used as a guide.  Once admitted to SDSU, an official evaluation of transfer credits will take place.  Should you have any questions about a program articulation agreement or wish to create a new program articulation agreement with SDSU, please contact the Office of Academic Affairs at 605-688-4173 or by email
