Please Note:

  • AS-T degree holders in Computer Science automatically satisfy the BSCS requirements for CS 46A, 46B, and 47; MATH 30, 31, and 42; and PHYS 50 and 51.
  • Courses listed in parentheses are also acceptable equivalents for the SJSU course, although they may no longer be offered. A course listed outside of parentheses is recommended over a course listed in parentheses.
  • Equivalencies on this form are guaranteed only for use for the BS in Computer Science (BSCS) at SJSU . They will not necessarily be accepted for other majors, unless they are formally articulated. Articulated courses not listed above will be accepted as equivalencies. Unarticulated courses are sometimes accepted for the BSCS; it's safest to get advance approval from the Computer Science Department. Articulated courses are listed at http://info.sjsu.edu/web-dbgen/artic/all-course-to-course.html.
  • All courses require a grade of C- or better.
  • Students planning to count any of the community college courses listed here toward the BSCS degree at SJSU should fill out a Course Equivalency Form in their first semester at SJSU. It is not enough just to take these courses without filling out this form.
  • Any of the courses listed under Chem 1A, Phys 50, Phys 51, or Phys 52 may count toward the 5 units of approved science electives for the BSCS at SJSU, if it is not also counted toward General Education. The same is true of a biology course if it is (1) articulated with Biol 30 or 31, or (2) part of a sequence that is articulated with Biol 30-31.
  • DeAnza and Foothill are on the quarter system; the other colleges are on the semester system.
  • * Community college courses in linear algebra do not count toward the upper division unit minimum for the B.S. in Computer Science.
  • ** SJSU uses Java in CS 46A and 46B. A course does not need to use Java to be equivalent to CS 46A or 46B. But note that knowledge of Java equivalent to that of CS 49J is needed to succeed in CS 146 and CS 151 at SJSU. A first course in Java does not normally provide this knowledge.  A single course cannot be used to satisfy both the CS 46A requirement and the CS 49C requirement.
  • J: The course is taught in Java according to the official catalog.
  • C: The course is taught in C++ or C according to the official catalog.
  • U: The programming language is unstated in the official catalog.
