GE ADVISING

icon-advising

 

Because the health and safety of our campus community is of highest priority, and given the evidence-based measures that minimize the spread of COVID-19, all advisors are sheltering in place. However, all advisors are available to assist students remotely, through virtual appointments that can be scheduled through The Bay Advisor or via email. Click on the button below to schedule an appointment for GE advising. Follow the "Read More" link for Bay Advisor instructions.

 

Freshmen and Sophomores

Contact your FASST Advisor, OR if you are not sure who your designated advisor is, email f20frosh@csueastbay.edu

Juniors and Seniors

Contact your academic advisor, OR if you have a general GE advising question, email GEOffice@csueastbay.edu

Students with Questions About GE Credit for Transferred Courses

Courses transferred to CSUEB from an outside institution may or may not be approved for GE (including Overlay, Second Composition, or Code) credit, which is noted in your Transfer Credit Report and Degree Audit Report in your MyCSUEB portal.  If you think a course you transferred in may be eligible to clear a GE area, please reach out to your academic advisor.  Only academic advisors may submit a GE Petition on behalf of a student.  

Information About GE Credit for AP Exams

Depending on your score on a specific AP exam, you may receive GE and/or major credit.  Go to the Advanced Placement (AP) Exam Credit section of the catalog for specific details.  A quick reference chart is available here
