Substitutions & Articulations References

students in plaza

To check if a course is officially articulated please go first to SJSU Articulation and next to www.assist.org.  Please follow the instructions there to see if a course is articulated from the institution where you took it to our department at SJSU. 

Please note: If you received below a C in any course that you wish to have substituted or articulated, you should plan on taking the course (again!) here at SJSU.  We expect our students to produce quality work and a grade lower than a C does not illustrate quality work.

For the undergraduate program in Health Science, there are no courses that are articulated for upper-division courses.  If you are transferring into Health Science from another four-year institution, you will need to contact a faculty advisor to have the course in question reviewed as a potential substitution. 

If you have not yet submitted your Application for Graduation, any articulated courses or approved substitutions should be listed on the bottom of your purple HS major form.  When you apply for graduation as part of Faculty Advising Week, your substitutions/articulations will be reviewed and approved on the official (white copy) of your HS major form that will be submitted along with your Application for Graduation.

There are currently over 100 courses that articulate for HS 001 – Understanding Your Health.  Although many of these arrangements are new, if you earned a C or better in a course that is listed on transfer.sjsu.edu for HS 001 – that will count as an equivalent course and can be listed as a substitution on your HS major form.  There is no equivalent course at SJSU for HS 001.

  There are currently about 80 courses that articulate for HS 015 – Human Lifespan.  Similar to HS 001, as long you earned a C or better in the course, the course will be an acceptable substitution.  If you earned a C or better in CHAD/KIN 067 at SJSU, this course will count as an equivalent course for HS 015.  In either of these cases, you would list the course as a substitution on your HS major form.

  On transfer.sjsu.edu and assist.org, there are currently very few courses listed as articulations for HS 067 – Introductory Health Statistics.  If you earned a C or better in a course that articulates for STAT095, this course will count as an equivalent course for HS 067.  If you earned a C or better in STAT095 at SJSU, this will count as an equivalent course.  In either of these cases, you would list the course as a substitution on your HS major form.
