check Assist.org to see if your courses count.

CCs, we cannot accept abnormal, social, development,
etc. from CCs because they are all lower division
courses. Our CSULB psychology courses are upper
division. To get credit for a course the level must be
the same.
• Course Credits from Out of State, Private, or other
Four Year schools must be individually reviewed.
• To get course credit you can email the course
descriptions from the other school’s catalog (syllabi are
required for Stats & research methods courses) to the
PRO Supervisors at [email protected] for review.
Please do not send links, copy/paste into the email.
