Transfer Students & the Core Requirement

If you transferred to Santa Clara from another college or university, you may be wondering what you have to do to satisfy the Core Requirements in Religious Studies. The answer is based on how many units you brought to Santa Clara.

If you came in with 44 or more units, you may take any two religious studies courses in any order (intro, intermediate or advanced).

If you came in with less than 44 units, you will take three religious studies courses in order: first an introductory course (SCTR, TESP or RSOC 1-19), then an intermediate course (SCTR, TESP or RSOC 20-99), and finally an advanced course (SCTR, TESP or RSOC 100-199).
