Template Overview

The Quarter to Semester Course Template provides a list of quarter courses together with their corresponding semester equivalents. It depicts how courses taken under the current quarter system at California State University, Los Angeles will be applied to degree requirements under the new semester system and vice versa.

Many of the courses have a simple course-for-course corresponding equivalent. However, there are some exceptions. For example, course sequences can vary where two quarter courses may equal one semester course, or three quarter courses may equal two semester courses, etc. Also, some courses may have no semester system equivalent.

Please fill-out the conversion table template(s) for your academic program(s) and send an electronic copy to the Q2S office. Students will work with their academic advisors to identify how courses taken on the quarter system and courses to be taken on the semester system will be used to satisfy their degree requirements. The tables will be posted on the academic program and Q2S websites.
