Courses to take the summer before your first semester at SDSU
If you missed a prerequisite course, or your school didn’t offer an SDSU equivalent, you should consider taking the course prior to the beginning of the fall semester. Taking any outstanding prerequisite courses allows students to declare the upper-division major sooner, resulting in the ability to take upper-division Nutrition (NUTR) and ENS courses.
Please be aware that students must earn a C or better in BIOL 212 & ENS 200 in order to declare in the upper-division major in KINESIOLOGY PRE-PHYSICAL THERAPY. If you are missing either of these courses, consider registering for these courses at SDSU during the summer.
