More About Academic Costs

Program Length

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 four-year bachelor’s degree awarding institution will need to complete 50 units at Sac State to reach 120 units to graduate. Total program costs will vary depending on transferable credits, if any. Please contact the program for more information. 

Cost of Books and Materials

Book costs vary for each program and may fluctuate. Please contact the program for more information.
