Meeting English Composition Coursework Requirements

其中的一个 入学要求 for all transfer students is two transferable courses in English composition with letter 成绩 of C or better. If you are applying to transfer directly from an international college or university where English is not the language of instruction, it is very unlikely that any of your English courses will transfer to 加州银河游戏官方网. 然而, we strongly encourage you to take as much English as your curriculum will allow. If English is not the primary language of instruction at your school, you will need to demonstrate your 英语水平 with one of the approved examinations. 参观 考试和签证页面 的更多信息.
