Hello, I am really confused on the whole concept of transferring to be honest..
I am trying to transfer into Cal Poly SLO from a community college as a Physics major . Their transfer criteria consists of all these classes that support the Physics major such as english comp, critical thinking, speech, (the usual) AND THEN it says I need physics, math, chem..and GE requirements of course. The criteria can be found here Transfer Selection Criteria -Admissions- Cal Poly
But when I go to other colleges' sites like San Fransisco State's, they say all you need is 30 sem units of GE including:
1. One course in oral communication
2. One course in written composition
3. One course in critical thinking
4. One course in mathematics or quantitative reasoning, with intermediate algebra as a prerequisite
Am I understanding this right? Some colleges only need GE requirements plus the 4 basic skills courses, but others (like CalPolySLO) require additional courses that support the major?
