Request an equivalency review for a course taken at another college or university

  • Continuing students - following these steps will lead to faster results:

    • Before submitting a request, carefully review your Degree Progress Report to see what requirements you have already met.

    • Consult with a faculty advisor in your major about transfer courses that you think could meet major requirements.

    • Consult with a staff advisor at one of our campus advising centers about transfer courses that you think could meet GE and other graduation requirements.

  • New students: After receiving your official transcripts, Undergraduate Admissions will evaluate your transfer credit for meeting General Education, US History, and US/CA Government requirements. Course equivalency is not required. View your Transfer Credit Report in your Student Center to see how your previous coursework has been evaluated to meet GE requirements.

  • All requests submitted on this site must include course documentation (syllabus or other institution-approved document) and will be forwarded to the appropriate SF State department chair for review and approval. A course description is insufficient.

  • Only requests regarding baccalaureate-level courses taken at regionally accredited U.S. institutions can be considered.

  • Submit multiple requests if needed - one SF State course per submission.

  • After review, the submitter will receive an update. 

  • SF State faculty or staff: if you are submitting on behalf of a student, please include the student's ID number in the Comments.
