Pre-Approved Undergraduate Course Substitutions for EPC Prerequisites for the program

Note: Please use the table below to help you identify courses offered at other institutions that have been approved as substitutes for the required EPC prerequisites at CSUN. If there is a course or combination of courses that is not on our list but that you believe, based on a comparison of the course descriptions, could serve as a substitute, please email the EPC Department Office at epcadmin@csun.edu to request a review. In your email, please include the EPC course you are hoping to substitute; the course name, number, syllabus copy, and catalog description for the course or courses you are inquiring about; and the name of the institution where the course is being offered. For planned courses, please request approval before enrolling

All prerequisite courses must be a minimum of 3 semester/4.5 quarter units and completed within the past seven (7) years with a grade of 'B-' or better to be considered as a prerequisite substitution.
