GRADUATE TRANSFER UNITS BY EXTENSION

At the option of the college/school or department offering an advanced degree requiring a total of 30 units, up to six units of approved extension/continuing education or transfer credit may be used on a graduate student's programs. At the option of the college/school or department offering a graduate degree requiring a total of 30 units, this limit may be raised to 9 units of extension/continuing education credit if taken at CSULB. These limits may be increased further for graduate degrees requiring more than 30 units, provided that (1) no graduate degree may be awarded by CSULB unless at least 24 units are taken in residence, and (2) no graduate student program may use either extension/continuing education or transfer credit to satisfy the requirement that at least 60 percent of the total units be taken at the 500 and 600 levels. Extension courses completed at campuses including California State University, Long Beach shall be acceptable within the six-unit transfer limit, provided the work can be properly evaluated and the course is acceptable as graduate work for an equivalent graduate degree on the campus where taught. Extension/continuing education and transfer course material shall be evaluated and approved by CSULB faculty teaching in the topic area in conjunction with the department graduate advisor and college/school dean or director of graduate studies. Final approval/disapproval shall be the responsibility of the Dean of Graduate Studies.
