Important Changes in 2021


2021 Degree Requirements

If you entered SDSU during or after the Fall 2021 semester, you must use the 2021 degree requirements. The Fall 2021 semester officially starts on August 20, 2021.


2020 Degree Requirements

If, as of August 19, 2021, you have already taken classes at SDSU and the Web Portal lists your (pre)major as CS, then you may use the [slightly easier] 2020 degree requirements. This option is available if you are a continuing student and have been formally admitted to the CS program prior to the start of the Fall 2021 semester.



Everyone has the option of using the degree requirements in effect in the year they graduate, so it is possible to use the 2021 requirements even if you qualify to use the older catalog. Note also that the catalog year that governs your General Education requirements can be different than the catalog year you follow for your major requirements. The links above display the CS degree requirements, covering both the 2021 (and later) catalog years, and the 2020 (and earlier) catalog years, respectively.
