Substitutions & Articulations References
To check if a course is officially articulated please go to SJSU Articulation or 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: Our degree requires students to complete an articulated course with a C or better. If you received below a C in any course that articulates, you will still need to take the course at SJSU to meet the grade minimum requirement.
Please note that courses taken at community college all transfer as lower division courses to SJSU. If you are transferring into Public Health 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 your major form. When you apply for graduation, your substitutions/articulations will be reviewed and approved on the major form that will be submitted along with your Application for Graduation.
There are currently over 100 courses that articulate for PH 001 – Understanding Your Health. If you earned a C or better in a course that is listed on transfer.sjsu.edu for PH 001 – that will count as an equivalent course and can be listed as a substitution on your PH major form. There is no equivalent course at SJSU for PH 001.
There are currently about 80 courses that articulate for PH 015 – Human Lifespan. Similar to PH 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 70 at SJSU, this course will count as an equivalent course for PH 015. In either of these cases, you would list the course as a substitution on your PH major form.
On transfer.sjsu.edu and assist.org, you will note that any course that articulates to STAT095 can count to fulfill PH 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 PH 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 major form.
