CSUSM believes strongly in preparing its students for the demands of a diverse and globalizing world. Here are benefits of LOTER for CSUSM Graduates, and specifically for STEM Majors. Language proficiency should always go on your resume, for example: Certified, academic, intermediate written and spoken [language] .
 

Unit Load

If you complete 12 units per semester, it will take in-coming first-years 5 years to graduate.
If you complete 15 units per semester, it will take in-coming first-years 4 years go graduate. 
Adding courses in Winter and Summer can reduce semester load while keeping your 24- or 30-unit goal per academic year.
