When should I apply for graduation?

You may apply for graduation once you have declared a major and completed 90 units (including work-in-progress) or approximately one year prior to your planned graduation date. At least one semester of work must be completed in residence at CSUN before Undergraduate Degree Services can complete your graduation evaluation. Economics majors should consider applying for graduation once ECON 310 has either been completed with a C or better or is in progress.

For more information on applying for graduation, see Your Path to Graduation here http://www.csun.edu/admissions-records/uds.

How do I change my major or minor to economics?

For students with under 90 units, you may request a change of program in your student portal. See this step-by-step tutorial http://www.csun.edu/anr/soc/guides/major-minor.html. 

For students with 90 or more units, you will need to fill out and submit 2 documents to the Economics Department; they are the Change of Major  (.pdf) or Change of Minor (.pdf) form and your My Academic Planner. (For detailed instructions on these, please see [insert page of step-by-step instructions and helpful hints on graduation applications].

Will my course transfer?

To find out if a course you've taken at another institution will transfer to CSUN and meet CSUN requirements in the David Nazarian College of Business and Economics, please fill out a Course Substitution-Waiver form. Send an email from your CSUN account with the Subject Line "Course Substitution Request" to the appropriate department chair with: (1) a completed substitution/waiver form, (2) a current DPR, and (3) supporting documents (i.e. course descriptions and/or syllabus, etc.) as attachments. A scanner is available for student use in computer lab JH 2129. 

Once approved, we will send an email to your CSUN email address.

Note: you will need to do this twice if you've changed your major or if you first sent the substitution form while the course was in progress, and have since earned an official grade.
