CSM Course Approval Form

This form is only to be submitted by undergraduate students with a major or minor in the College of Science and Mathematics (CSM) who would like to have a course taken at another institution* reviewed for a major or minor requirement here at CSUSM (not a general education requirement).

  • Please submit a new form for each course you would like to have reviewed for your CSM major or minor.
  • Do not submit a request to have a general education course reviewed.
  • Lower-division courses may not be reviewed for an upper-division requirement.
  • A request does not guarantee approval.
  • *Do not submit a request to have a course reviewed from Mira Costa College, Mount San Jacinto College or Palomar College. These colleges have detailed articulation agreements and alternate courses will not be considered.

Majors housed in CSM include Applied Physics, Biochemistry, Biological Science, Biotechnology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Mathematics and Software Engineering.

Minors housed in CSM include Biological Sciences, Chemistry, Electronics, Mathematics, Physics, and Quantitative Biology & Biostatistics.

Requests submitted by students with a major/minor outside of CSM will be discarded.
