Transfer Course Credits

Course credits from Community Colleges:

  • We accept only our 4 lower division courses, General/Intro Psych, Psych Stats, Research Methods, and Psychobiology/Biopsych from Community Colleges. Check Assist.org to see if your courses count!

  • We do NOT accept any other psychology courses from CCs. We cannot accept abnormal, social, development, etc. from CCs, because they are all lower division courses- our CSULB psychology courses are upper division.


Transfer course credits1

Transfer Course Credits

  • Course Credits from Out of State, Private, or other Four Year schools must be individually reviewed!

  • To get course credits reviewed you should start by contacting ATLAS to make an appointment to see an adviser

  • Make sure you have documentation of what your courses covered (syllabus is best, sometimes the catalog description will work)
