Even if GE certified, you must still complete 9 units of Upper Division GE’s (i.e., 300 level or above) When completing upper, can also satisfy needed GE sectional credit Sometimes, may also count for major All lower division in major? All prerequisites for upper division classes in major? Specific math required in major? Completed lower division and prerequisites in major? Until all lower division are completed, many majors restrict access to Upper Division major courses (i.e., 300 levels or above)

9 Transitioning to CSUN Upper Division GEs

13 (espcially for Grad School!)
Grades, Repeating, GPA & Financial Aid Grades CSUN’s grading system includes pluses and minuses PROTECT your Major GPA (espcially for Grad School!) Grade Points Grade 4 A 3.7 A- 3.3 B+ 3.0 B 2.7 B- 2.3 C+ 2.0 C 1.7 C- 1.3 D+ 1 D 0.7 D- F In Com Disrd = F Be very careful…some majors have additional grade requirements! In some majors = F In most majors = F

14 Grades, Repeating, GPA & Financial Aid
Most Graduate Programs require at least a 3.0 GPA (or higher GRE’s if below). Protect your major GPA! Be sure to balance your course load with your academic and life demands, to help maintain your GPA and your sanity If either your CSUN or Overall GPA go below 2.0 you will be placed on Academic Probation (it may jeopardize your financial aid) Once on probation, if either your CSUN (or Overall) GPA drops below 1.85 you can be Academically Disqualified (i.e., kicked out, and possibly not able to come back for at least a year – in some cases it can happen if you go below 1.95)* *Therefore, Disqualification could result even if entering with an almost 4.0 overall GPA, and then having a CSUN semester of C’s & C- followed by another 2.0 semester.

15 Grades, Repeating, GPA & Financial Aid
Repeating Classes – Grade Replacement Must be repeated at CSUN (Must wait until 2 days before class to register Up to 16 units Classes with grades of C- or below only 2nd Time only, only one chance (if must take again, will go into GPA) Forgiven but not forgotten (remains on transcript although not calculated in GPA). Financial Aid will not cover repeats for passed classes (i.e., any grade above an F). They may count against your Satisfactory Academic Progress calculation.

16 Grades, Repeating, GPA & Financial Aid
Financial Aid: Satisfactory Academic Progress Satisfactory Pass Rate – Ratio CSUN Units Earned (UE) to CSUN Units Attempted (UA). Students must have passed at least 80% of all Units Attempted (UA). (Transfer units are not included in this calculation). Repeated CSUN course work are included, F’s, I’s, NC’s, W’s, and WU’s count as UA with zero UE). Satisfactory Pass Rate = UE/UA ≥ 80% Part Two: Satisfactory Grade Point Average – Students disqualified ineligible for financial aid based on grade point average standards. Students are not eligible for financial aid until they are officially readmitted to Cal State Northridge. Readmitted students must meet all other SAP policy standards Unit and Time Limits – 150 attempted units (125 percent of units required to graduate) are the maximum Other Provisions – See Financial Aid site ( There opportunities to appeal, though limited. 

17 Fees & Payment Options Students must pay registration fees by deadline or be disenrolled (look for due dates when enrolling) Part time (0-6 units) – $2, * Full time ( units) – $3, * Installment plan is available If you are paying out of state tuition, and have attended at least 3 years of California high school, you may have some other options (talk with us after the presentation) * Does not reflect possible increases proposed by CSU Board of Trustees

18 Joining Learning Communities for Academic Success & Professional Development
Get connected at CSUN: With your Major, other students, and your Department! Tutorial and Informal Study Groups Student Clubs and Organizations Professional Organizations – Student Chapters Meet your professors, rely on them for professional development, & mentoring Department events and opportunities

20 Graduation Requirements
3/31/2017 Graduation Requirements Lower Division (100 & 200 coursework – can be completed at community college) Freshman 0-29 units Sophomore units Upper Division ( level coursework – can only be completed at a university) Junior 60-89 Senior 90+ A Bachelors Degree Requires a Minimum of 120 Units (Cannot Exceed 140) Course Priority is: Math in Major Lower Division Major (especially sequenced courses) Prerequisites for Upper Major Upper Major (if eligible) GE’s (especially to help balance schedule) If we are building toward reading the DPR, we can say that it is set up in this manner and order (GEs, Major, 120 Units and other requirements). Also need to remind them for the first time, no UD classes

21 What is a Degree Progress Report (DPR) or My Academic Planner (MAP)?
Snapshot of was has been completed – at that moment Along with the Catalog, It’s the Roadmap/Blueprint of how to Complete your Degree

22 Degree Progress Reports & My Academic Planer
Need help getting your DPR or MAP? Admissions & Records has “How To” guides that take you through a step by step process. Using the CSUN “Search” is probably the fastest way to get to them. (You can also find them through the Registration Guide on Quick Links or in your portal in the My Path To Graduation section).

23 My Academic Planner & Degree Progress Reports
My Academic Planner (MAP) – (aka Interactive DPR) The DPR & MAP allow you to view all required classes. You can see what classes you need to complete your degree, the classes you have taken, and which transfer classes have been evaluated. You should bring a DPR to advisement. Degree Progress Report (DPR)

24 My Academic Planer The MAP also is the quickest to determine prerequisites to classes in your major – they are linked to catalog descriptions which note any pre-reqs (especially helpful for majors with classes from many departments). My Academic Planner (MAP) – (aka Interactive DPR)

25 My Academic Planer My Academic Planner (MAP) – (aka Interactive DPR) The MAP can help you plan out the classes in your major and track your progress.

This area indicates how many units have been taken of the 120 units needed for graduation Only 70 units from a community college can count toward the 120 units. However, additional community college coursework can satisfy degree requirements, and all will become part of total GPA. 50 units CSUN 120 units 70 units Community College

36 Reading a Degree Progress Report (DPR)
This section lists courses that aren’t used for any specific requirement, however the units are still being counted towards the 120 total units needed for graduation
