Transfer Undergraduate Student FAQ
Yes. The speech pathology major is not an Impacted Program at Cal State East Bay.
While our major course sequence starts only in the Fall, you may transfer in Spring, at which time you could focus on completing degree requirements such as Upper Division GE.
For the major, the usual lower division courses that are completed by the time you start at Cal State East Bay are: Human Anatomy and Physiology with Lab (BIOL 270), General Statistics (STAT 100), and General Psychology (PSYC 100) Please use the ASSIST website or the TES website to select transferable coursework. Note that if Human Anatomy and Physiology is offered as two separate courses elsewhere, you only need to take the Anatomy course. Be sure to check with your college counselors to verify you are completing the required number of units and content to successfully transfer in to a four-year CSU. You can also call Cal State East Bay's Welcome Center to arrange for preadmission advising, at 510/885-2556.
You should be able to still start the major, but you will need to play close attention to your roadmap to be sure you complete required lower division coursework in time to stay in sequence.
If you plan to apply to grad school, take advantage of all the tools available to you to achieve a strong overall GPA. Additionally, you can look for volunteer opportunities with either a speech pathologist, special education program, literacy program, or senior center.
