Should I declare a double major or a minor before I apply?

YES! If you are planning to work on a double major or minor, including a language, while studying abroad, you should declare as soon as possible so that it will appear on your transcripts for your application. You will also need to speak to an advisor in that department before departure.

For CSU International Programs, all units earned on these programs are displayed on your transcript as RESIDENT CREDIT, though you need to make sure you are taking the right classes while studying abroad by working with your academic advisor throughout the process.

For National Student Exchange/NSE Study Abroad, all units earned on these programs are guaranteed to transfer back, though you need to make sure you are taking the right classes while studying away by working with your academic advisor throughout the process.
