Program Pre-Requisites

The ASBSN Program does not provide pre-admission advising (review of transcript or courses). The official evaluation is conducted when you apply to the program; this is a part of the application fee. In other words, to determine whether you are eligible for the ASBSN Program, you must apply to the program.

Provided below are some tools and guidance that will help determine if the courses you took at your institution satisfy our pre-requisite requirement:

  1. Course Equivalence Grid – course agreement that only pertains to the following colleges:
  • Columbia College
  • Merced College
  • Modesto Junior College
  • San Joaquin Delta College
  1. – course agreement for other colleges
  • Select your institution and CSU Stanislaus to see the course agreement between the two institutions.
  • Note that not all colleges are available on In addition, not all colleges will have course agreement with CSU Stanislaus.
  1. General Guidance – if your college is not on, please use the below information to guide you in applying to our program:
  • Your courses will transfer over to our university/program as long as, your institution is regionally accredited.
  • The pre-requisite requirements are lower GE courses only.
  • We do not accept any substitutions, and we only accept the general and/or fundamental course for our pre-requisite requirements:

Example: the Introduction to Sociology requirement should be: Introduction to Sociology, Principles of Sociology, Sociology 1, Foundations of Sociology, Fundamental Sociology, and/or General Sociology. Each college name their courses differently, however, the theory here is that we only accept the genera/fundamental (basic) course.
