The Criminal Justice B.S. program welcomes students returning to school who are interested in earning a degree to assist in furthering their career goals. To apply to SDSU visit the Admissions Website.
The Criminal Justice program is an impacted program. To be admitted to the major students must meet the following criteria:
Students must fulfill the premajor requirements described in the catalog in effect at the time they declare the premajor OR New Majors must complete the following:
At the end of each semester (after grades are posted), CJ pre-majors are evaluated by the Office of Advising and Evaluations and will be automatically declared a CJ major if all pre-requisite requirements have been met. Students who are not automatically declared a CJ major, may request major status by completing the “Declaration or Change of Major”(DCM) form. You must complete the Declaration or Change of Undergraduate Major form. This form can also be obtained by visiting http://arweb.sdsu.edu/es/registrar/changemajor.html or in the PA Center lobby (PSFA 100).
Please Note Transfer Student Policy: Transfer students cannot change to a new pre-major/major from the designated pre-major/major they were admitted to unless all pre-requisites for the new major have been met.
When submitting the DCM Form please attach a Degree Evaluation, which can be retrieved from your webportal, AND place in the drop box in PSFA 100. Be sure to highlight all 4 required courses on the evaluation. After the form has been submitted it may take up to a week to process. If you are changing your primary major, your current major department will need to sign this form as well. If the form is approved, it is the student’s responsibility to take the form to the Office of the Registrar.
Students may consult with a CJ Adviser regarding their major courses. CJ Major coursework must conform to the requirements on the Degree Evaluation depending on your catalog year. If courses are not shown on your Degree Evaluation, submit the Major Outline/Advising Guide to your Adviser for formal approval at least one semester prior to graduation. If you declared the major in a different catalog year and there is a conflict see your adviser to resolve the conflict.
