Transferring into Facilities Engineering Technology

 

Summary of Major

Semester-by-Semester Curriculum

Fall 2021

The application period is October 1, 2020 through December 4, 2020. Apply online at www.calstate.edu/apply during that application period. There is a $70.00 application fee required when you submit the online application. Official academic transcripts from all colleges attended are also required.

Students with any number of college transfer units can be admitted. Note that only the first 70 community college semester units (105 quarter units) can be used toward the total needed for graduation. Any remaining community college units can fulfill specific requirements but not add to the total number of units required for graduation.

While your GPA must be above 2.00, there is no grade point average (GPA) that guarantees admission.  Admission is competitive.  The applicants with the strongest applications will be offered the limited number of spaces for new students in the program each fall.
