Requirements/Considerations, Fees and Expenses

General Requirements and Considerations:

  • Course and GPA Requirements—To receive approval to participate in one of the exchange programs, you must have at least a 2.75 cumulative GPA and have completed ALL lower division business.
  • Health Insurance—Students must arrange for their own health or medical insurance.
  • Course Approval—Any course that you want to be included in your CSUSM GBM Option program must be approved by the GBM Option Director. Courses at the universities are planned ahead of time and every attempt should be made to get prior approval. Not doing so is taking a risk that the course will not count toward your degree.
