*Program length varies based on how many existing units, if any, are transferred into the program. For first bachelor’s degrees, all students must have 120 units total to graduate; therefore, some transfer students may need to take additional units beyond what is required in the major to reach 120. Generally, transfer students who enter an undergraduate degree completion program without prior units from a 4 year bachelor’s degree awarding institution will need to complete 50 units at Sac State to reach 120 units to graduate. Please contact the program for more information. 
**Books vary for each course. Please contact the program for more information. It is estimated that the average student spends approximately $484 per year on books (National Association of College Stores); however, actual book costs depend on the academic program and may fluctuate. 
***Total program costs will vary depending on transferable credits, if any. Please contact a program manager for more information.
