Read the university catalog for detailed information about the university degree requirements and speak to your major and GE advisor.

Lower division GE, Second Course in English Composition (ENGL 200), and U.S. History, Constitution & American Ideas Code (US1, US2, US3) can be fulfilled from transferred community college courses. Upper division GE and fulfillment of the USWR cannot be met at a community college because they do not offer upper division coursework.
The USWR can be fulfilled via the Writing Skills Test (WST) and/or a combination of one or two courses. For information on the WST, registration (on MyCSUEB), test dates and locations go to the Testing Office website. It is highly recommended students attend WST preparation workshops provided by Student Center for Academic Achievement (SCAA). For more information visit Student Center for Academic Achievement.
