Extension and Professional Development Credit
Extension credit course work is recorded as transfer credit and is included in the student’s overall grade point average, not in the student’s SDSU scholastic average. The maximum amount of extension credit which may be accepted toward the minimum requirements for the bachelor's degree is 24 semester units. Extension credit is not counted in satisfaction of the minimum residence requirement. For graduate students, extension courses at SDSU may be accepted as fulfilling no more than 30% of the requirements for an advanced degree or advanced certificate, subject to limitations described in the Graduate Bulletin. For more information, contact the Division of Graduate Affairs at firstname.lastname@example.org, visit admissions.sdsu.edu/graduate or call (619) 594-5213.
Students enrolled in courses numbered 397, 997, and 01 through 79 earn professional development credit. These courses are designed to meet specific professional curricula and are not applicable to an SDSU degree.
Professional development courses numbered 01 through 49 are designated as lower division and 50-79 are designated as upper division. All records of extension and professional development credit are kept by the SDSU Office of the Registrar.
There is no limit to the number of certificate courses you may take. However, courses numbered 01 through 79 are professional advancement units offered to meet specific academic needs. Courses 01 through 49 are designated as lower division and 50 through 79 are designated as upper division. It is the prerogative of the academic department/college to determine if 01 through 79 level courses are applicable to a major, a minor, or toward specified electives. These courses are not acceptable toward advanced degree programs. All records of certificate credit are kept by the SDSU Office of the Registrar.
Special session course credit is resident credit and may be applied toward SDSU degree requirements. For undergraduate degrees, no more than 24 units may be taken prior to admission to SDSU; for advanced degrees or advanced certificates, no more than 50% of the program of study may be taken prior to matriculation. For more information, contact the Division of Graduate Affairs at email@example.com, visit admissions.sdsu.edu/graduate or call (619) 594-5213. Once you are matriculated, there is no limit to the number of special session courses you may take. Consult your advisor about the applicability of a specific course. Special session grades are included in the student's SDSU scholastic average. All records of special session credit are kept by the SDSU Office of the Registrar.
Noncredit courses receive no academic credit and are used for personal enrichment only. We cannot confirm completion of noncredit courses. If you plan to ask your instructor for verification of participation, you must attend all sessions and complete all assignments.
Continuing Education Units
The SDSU Global Campus awards Continuing Education Units (CEUs) to persons enrolled in, and completing certain noncredit programs. One continuing education unit is defined as ten contact hours of participation in an organized continuing education experience under responsible sponsorship, capable direction, and qualified instruction.
The primary purpose of the CEU is to provide a permanent record of the educational accomplishments of an individual who has completed a non-credit educational program. This record can be used to give employers and professional associations and societies a uniform measure of short-term educational programs completed by an individual. CEUs are not academic units and cannot be applied to degree work at institutions of higher education.
Open University Course Credit
Open University course credit is non-matriculated resident credit. Twenty-four units of Open University credit may be applied toward an SDSU undergraduate degree. For graduate students, not more than 30% of coursework taken in Open University prior to admission to an advanced degree or advanced certificate are acceptable on a program of study. For more information, contact the Division of Graduate Affairs at firstname.lastname@example.org, visit admissions.sdsu.edu/graduate or call (619) 594-5213.
Auditors must pay the same fee as those taking the course for credit but will not be required to take examinations and will not receive a final grade. You may change from credit to audit, or letter grade to CR/NC, only during the first half of a credit course. To change status, complete an audit card at the SDSU Global Campus registration office. Classes offered credit/no credit only may not be taken for a letter grade. For Open University grade change deadlines see Open University Registration Information.
Only a limited number of extension credits may be applied toward a teaching credential. If you need assistance in your choice of courses, contact the College of Education. While most extension courses are acceptable toward teachers' salary advancement requirements, teachers should contact their district office regarding the applicability of specific courses.
Courses numbered TE X-397 or ED X997 are not acceptable for degree or credential pattern requirements but may be used as in-service credits only.
Courses numbered 80-99 are non-baccalaureate level and are not acceptable for a bachelor's degree or general education requirement. Those numbered 100 through 299 are lower division (freshman and sophomore years); those numbered 300 through 499 are upper division (junior and senior years) and are intended for undergraduates. Those numbered 500 through 599 are upper division and also apply to advanced degrees when taken by students admitted to graduate standing. Those numbered 600 through 799 are strictly graduate courses; those numbered 800 through 899 are doctoral courses. Course numbers at the 900 level are reserved for graduate courses in certain professional curricula as part of advanced certificate, credential, and licensure programs and are specifically intended for students admitted to the University with post-baccalaureate classified standing.
Courses numbered at the 900 level are not applicable to other graduate programs. Courses numbered 01 through 79, 397, and 997 are professional advancement units offered only through extension to meet specific academic needs of community groups.
Courses 01 through 49 are designated as lower division and 50 through 79 and 397 are designated as upper division. It is the prerogative of the academic department/college to determine if 01 through 79 level courses are applicable to a major, a minor, or toward specified electives. The 01 through 79 level courses are offered in conjunction with certificate programs only. Courses at the 01 through 79 level are not acceptable on advanced degree programs. Courses offered as 397 and 997 are not acceptable toward an undergraduate or graduate degree.
SDSU Global Campus students who eventually plan to pursue an undergraduate degree at SDSU should consult the sponsoring academic department to ascertain the applicability of 01 through 79 level courses offered in any certificate program toward their proposed course of study.
All transcripts come from the SDSU Office of the Registrar. To obtain an official transcript, order online through my.SDSU. The fee for each transcript is $15, additional mailing fees may apply. On Demand transcripts can be obtained in person at the SDSU Office of the Registrar for a cost of $20 each. If you have taken extension courses, indicate this on your request. Unofficial transcripts are also available free through my.SDSU.
To request an enrollment verification, complete the SDSU Global Campus enrollment verification request form and submit via secure email to the SDSU Global Campus Registration and Enrollment Services office. Contact (619) 594-5152 or email@example.com for assistance with a secure email link. Please allow 10 business days to process the request.
If your check or charge is returned by the bank for any reason, the cashier's office will send a letter requesting payment for the amount of the original dishonored item plus a $35 dishonored payment charge. A $25 late fee will also be charged if applicable. The student has five days to pay the amount in cash, cashier's check, or money order to the cashier's office. Nonpayment of fees may result in cancellation of your registration and/or withholding of further services until all financial liabilities have been met. The state has the authority to withhold amounts owed to the University from any future state tax refund to which you may be entitled.
Students who have had checks returned may also be prohibited from writing checks in the future. If you have previously had a dishonored check, no personal checks, even from another person, are acceptable on your behalf.
For the SDSU parking fee refund schedule, see the SDSU catalog. Refunds can be obtained at the University cashier's office. The amount of refund is rounded down to the nearest dollar. No refund is made for amounts of less than $10. Refunds may be applied against other amounts due the University.
All veterans must certify that they are aware that any registration changes may alter the payments the VA will award, and understand that they will be liable for any overpayment which they may receive from the Veterans Administration.

Within SDSU Global Campus, I-20 forms may only be issued to eligible students enrolled in the American Language Institute (ALI).
Beginning in fall 2021, parking is not included with enrollment in any SDSU Global Campus course. As an SDSU Global Campus student, you’ll need to purchase an SDSU Student Parking Permit through San Diego State University in order to park your vehicle on campus.
To purchase an SDSU Student Parking Permit, please visit the Aztec Parking Portal using either Mozilla Firefox or Microsoft Edge and purchase your parking permit. Please view the downloadable PDFs below for instructions:
- Student, Faculty, and Staff Cheat Sheet to Purchase a Permit
- Visitors First Time Login to Purchase a Permit
- How to Link Permit to Vehicle Cheat Sheet
If you have any outstanding citations associated with your vehicle in the Aztec Parking Portal, you won’t be able to purchase a permit until all citations have been paid. Additionally, you will always need to link your permit to the vehicle you are driving. If you get a new vehicle, entering the vehicle into the portal is not enough - you’ll also need to link your current permit to the new vehicle.
If you have a rental vehicle, please do not enter it into your account. Doing so may cause any outstanding citations on that vehicle to transfer to your account.
California is now issuing temporary plates for new cars. Please enter this as your temporary license plate in order to not receive a citation. Once you’ve received your physical plate, please contact Parking Services at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can change your vehicle to the correct plates.
Please email email@example.com with any questions or issues.
California State University is accredited by the Senior College Commission of the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC). California State University monitors developments in state laws in every state. If authorization or licensure is necessary or becomes necessary, California State University will seek out the required additional approvals. Pursuant to the United States Department of Education's Program Integrity Rule, each institution of higher education is required to provide all prospective and current students with the contact information for the state agency or agencies that handle complaints against postsecondary education institutions offering distance learning within that state. For more information see calstate.edu/acadAff/state-regulatory-authorizations.
The Office of the Ombudsman, (619) 594-6578, and the Office of Employee Relations and Compliance, (619) 594-6464, have been designated to coordinate the efforts of SDSU to comply with all applicable federal and state laws prohibiting discrimination on these bases.
Race, Color, Ethnicity, National Origin, Age, and Religion
The California State University does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, ethnicity, national origin, age, or religion in its programs and activities, including admission and access. Federal and state laws, including Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the California Equity in Higher Education Act, prohibit such discrimination.
The California State University does not discriminate on the basis of disability in its programs and activities, including admission and access. Federal and state laws, including sections 504 and 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, prohibit such discrimination. Students should address inquiries concerning San Diego State University’s compliance with all relevant disability laws to the director of Student Disability Services (SDS), Calpulli Center, Room 3101, San Diego State University, CA 92182, or call (619) 594-6473 (TDD: (619) 594-2929).
Sex/Gender/Gender Identity/Sexual Orientation
The California State University does not discriminate on the basis of sex, gender, gender identity, or sexual orientation in its programs and activities, including admission and access. Federal and state laws, including Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, prohibit such discrimination. The California State University is committed to providing equal opportunities to male and female CSU students in all campus programs, including intercollegiate athletics.
Discrimination on the basis of sex, including sexual harassment and sexual violence, is prohibited by Title VII of the Civil Rights Act and Title IX of the Education Act. Sexual harassment refers to the unwanted imposition of sexual attention, usually in the context of a relationship of unequal power, rank, or status, as well as the use of one’s position of authority in the university to bestow benefits or impose deprivations on another. This policy applies equally to all students, faculty, and staff. Sexual harassment, or other harassment based on a person’s "protected status" includes verbal, nonverbal, and/or physical conduct that has the intent or effect of unreasonable interference with individuals’ or groups’ education or work performance. This may also include actions that create an intimidating, hostile, or offensive working, or learning environment. Both men and women can be the victims of sexual harassment or harassment based on a "protected status."
Complaints Alleging Discrimination and/or Harassment
Students, faculty, and staff who believe they are victims of discrimination and/or harassment, including sexual harassment and sexual violence, should contact the Office of Employee Relations and Compliance, (619) 594-6464. The staff can explain the complaint procedures available to students, faculty, and staff on our campus. Students, faculty, and staff may also contact Jessica Rentto, SDSU Title IX coordinator and associate vice president for administration, located in Administration, Room 320, (619) 594-6017, firstname.lastname@example.org. University policy, as well as state and federal law, prohibits retaliation against an individual who files a complaint of discrimination or harassment or who participates in the investigation of such a complaint. More detailed information regarding SDSU nondiscrimination policies and instructions on filing a complaint can be found at https://oerc.sdsu.edu.
