Program Prerequisites


Prerequisites may be taken at California State University Fullerton, or at any accredited graduate, undergraduate or community/junior college. Several different course titles may meet the content areas we require. In some cases, a combination of several courses may be deemed equivalent to a single prerequisite course. It is the student's responsibility to provide relevant information (e.g. syllabi, course descriptions, and assignments) when requested.

Highlighted courses are prerequisites available in CSUF undergraduate Departments.
