Student Resources

Important Resources

The course requirements for our programs are stated in the University Catalog. Note that students graduate based on the catalog year they entered (archive catalogs can be accessed through the main Catalog webpage, top right).

The Handbook for Music Majors, the University Catalog, semesterly course schedules, course syllabi and other important sources of information will be powerful tools for you to use in your journey on the way to successfully completing a degree program at CSUEB. It is the student’s responsibility to clearly understand all degree requirements.
