Course credits earned in universities abroad may be accepted for degree credit at CSULB subject to evaluation by the cognizant department or program upon admission of the student to the University. CSULB students who desire, subsequent to admission, to take courses at a foreign university for degree credit must have each such course approved in advance in writing by the Chair of the appropriate department or program.
The Center for International Education administers many international education and exchange programs. Students fully accepted into one of these programs may, in most cases, continue CSULB residency while studying in the approved foreign institution. Some courses taken through these programs do not have to be approved in advance.
