Hi. I took an introduction to government class and an introduction to general psychology class this summer at a CC, but assist says that these classes don't have an articulation with CSULA POLS 150 and PSY 150. The learning outcomes are similar as well as the course description. All other CSUs, and UCs, accept it. Can I get credit for it? Where do I go to make sure it transfers over?


If there is no direct articulation on and the course is transferable it is recommended you visit your major advisor and request a GE petition. 

Print out the course description from that school’s catalog                       (no copy and paste). Your advisor will then review the description and compare it to our university catalog. You may want to compare the descriptions as well.

Cost per unit for an Undergraduate/Resident student?


Information on tuition is found in the following link below:

Is Econ/Math 109 one class or is it two, Econ 109 & Math 109?


Econ/Math 109 is what is known as a Cross-listed course. It is considered one class.

When in doubt looking at the course description in the E-catalog will help. Using Econ/Math 109 as the example:[27]=MATH&filter[29]=&filter[course_type]=-1&filter[keyword]=&filter[32]=1&filter[cpage]=1&cur_cat_oid=10&expand=&navoid=702&search_database=Filter#acalog_template_course_filter

Can I call to speak with an advisor or do I have to go in person?


Communication with an Academic Adviser is very important. If you have a declared major it would be recommended for you to contact your college advisement Center. This will allow you find out who is the adviser assigned to your major and what is the best way to get in touch with your adviser.

If you are an undeclared student you can contact the University Academic advisement center (323) 343-3160

Hello, I have provided a little more information about the WPE exam

How do students register for UNIV 400 (WPE/GWAR)?

  1. Check the Schedule of Classes under UNIV 400 WPE/GWAR listing and select a section.

Hello! :) For new students, do we deduct $100 from the tuition fee because of the enrollment deposit? Thanks

Hello there,

Yes, they submit $100 less.

Hello, is it recommended that students pay for tuition online or in-person? Thanks in advance :)


Both are good options. Choose what feels comfortable to you. Keeping in mind tuition should be paid 3 business days prior to your designated registration date.

Hi, I was granted provisional admission as a transfer student for fall 2014. My application still states 'complete" not "admitted". My orientation is in one week, and I have yet to received the orientation packet. I understand that students have to pay tuition before registering for classes. Even though I am not officially a student, should I pay the tuition fee prior to my orientation date or do new students pay later? Thank you so much!

Hi Happy Friday!

Very good question, one way to verify your admissions status is by contacting the admissions office by email. Their friendly staff is very good at responding to your questions in regards to the status of your application. Make sure to include your CIN# in your email or

If you are paying tuition out of pocket then it is recommended you pay the full amount 3 days prior to your Registration date in your case 3 days prior to your Orientation date.

If you have any questions regarding your Orientation you may contact their office at (323) 343-3195
