CAL POLY SLO TRANSFER STUDENTS 2019-2020

radicalhuman111radicalhuman111 Registered User Posts: 18 Junior Member
For those planning to apply this fall 2018 to transfer for next fall 2019. I know it’s early but it’s better to be prepared than not to be!


Hi Everyone,
I know it is early but might as well get this started! Good luck everyone.

My stats:
Major: Political Science (emphasis on Law)
Current College: CSUN
IGETC: Will be done by Spring 2019
Major requirements: 1/3 done, spring 2019 all done
GPA: 3.3
ECs: 2 internships, 20+ hours work for CSUN ASSOCIATED STUDENTS , and RA for freshman suites.
In-State, Out-of-State: In state, San Diego
Credits after Spring 2019: 67

Anyone know if some courses don’t articulate if they will still take them and find a way for us to get credit for it so we don’t fall behind?

    @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.
  • 90smix90smix Registered User Posts: 195 Junior Member
    @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.
  • XOcrew75XOcrew75 Registered User Posts: 24 Junior Member
    @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.
  • XOcrew75XOcrew75 Registered User Posts: 24 Junior Member
    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.
  • 90smix90smix Registered User Posts: 195 Junior Member
    @ XOcrew75 Thank you!
  • radicalhuman111radicalhuman111 Registered User Posts: 18 Junior Member
    Good luck to everyone! I have submitted everything now for the most stressful part. . . waiting.
