Transfer Credit & Degree Applicability

Within SF State: For matriculated SF State students, Winter Session course credits are transferable and degree-applicable, as in any other term.

Non-matriculated students may apply up to 24 units toward a bachelor's degree and 6 units toward a master's degree, with the approval of the relevant department chair, should they matriculate into an SF State degree, credential, or credit certificate program.
