Transfer from SJSU to Cal Poly SLO in one year? Help?

<p>I currently go to San Jose State right now, and it wasn't my choice of school. My parents limited me significantly in where I could have applied to last year. My top choice was Cal Poly SLO, and I got rejected. I really want to leave SJSU and go to Cal Poly. They said I can't transfer in until I have completed 60 semester credits, which essentially means I have to wait until I'm a Junior, and I don't want to wait that long. Is it possible to transfer in as a "Freshman" next year, and then see if my credits from SJSU transfers over?</p>

<p>CSUs, like UCs generally only accept transfer students who will be entering as juniors. The state requires both systems to maintain 40% of their seats for lower division students and 60% for upper division to be able to have sufficient space available for the large number of students who do their lower division coursework at community colleges and then transfer to a UC or CSU. Cal Poly SLO is also required to give admission priority to transfer applicants from community colleges over transfer applicants from other four year colleges and universities.</p>

<p>If you want to be a “freshman” transfer (i.e. you have less than 60 units completed), you will need to apply like a HS grad, which means you will need to submit your HS grades and test scores just like any freshman, along with your SJSU grades.</p>

<p>If you did less than stellar in HS, then it will be a big minus for admissions. So yes, you can do it, but it won’t be easy.</p>
