Preparing to Transfer to the University of San Diego

Recommended USD School of Business Prerequisites

It is strongly recommended to complete calculus prior to transferring to USD, and at minimum college algebra, if you are coming in with sophomore standing or higher. 

We recommend students do not take statistics and information systems prior to attending USD. Due to the USD School of Business’ content and structure of these classes, if students take one of the aforementioned classes, it is possible it will not be accepted to transfer.

Please note, any course approved to transfer to the USD School of Business must have a minimum grade of a C or better earned. There are some courses that require a B or better. In these special cases, your advisor will discuss this with you.
