@90smix I think it might be a stretch at best if you haven’t finished all of the major requirements. 7 to 8 classes missing is a guaranteed NO. I would advice that you change your major now to something that you have finished the requirements for and then once you get accepted you can petition for a major change into your desired major. Since you have a good GPA it wouldn’t be as much of an issue for you to switch once you are at the school.

@XOcrew75 Yeah I REALLY don’t want to be a business major (I was pressured by friends lol). I didn’t know I could change my major! What do you mean exactly? I thought you couldn’t change your CSU major after submitting the app?

For the two other majors I have 100% done for English and 75% done for Graphic Comm.

@90smix you can change it here: http://dots-util.calpoly.edu/transfer_changeUPDATE.php?ccsForm=dots_appchangetrans

then once you get it you can talk to your advisor to go into the major you want.

you won’t see the change on the cal state apply website but it will be visible on your calpoly student center page, it takes 2-3 weeks.

@ XOcrew75 Thank you!

Good luck to everyone! I have submitted everything now for the most stressful part. . . waiting.

So, most likely we won’t hear anything until mid-March?

It could realistically be anywhere between President’s Day weekend-mid March

Hey guys, I’m trying to fill out the supplemental application and I’m confused. Where do I list my physics courses. There is an option for physical sciences and and calculus based physics. Do I need to list it in both the section.
Same with Chemistry, I don’t know whether to put it in life science section or the chemistry section. Please help

@XOcrew75 List everything once, I would recommend putting them under their specific category (chemistry under chemistry) they will correlate it to fulfilling the physical science requirement. The physics section you need to know if you took basic general physics or a specific calculus based physics. whichever you took, put it there! If you are still under, look at your degree progress report your college provides for you and it should tell you which classes fulfill which sections. hope this helps!
