2018-2019 CSU East Bay Semester Catalog (beta)

To the Readers:

Thank you for visiting the Cal State East Bay Catalog.  The 2018-19 Catalog you are viewing has been published so that current and potential students can plan for their programs under the new semester-based calendar.  At this point, the catalog is not considered official and some changes may occur between this initial, “beta version” publication and the official publication on July 2, 2018.  This catalog includes courses and policies approved and information provided on or before September 1, 2017.  Subsequent approvals and information will be inserted into the catalog before official publication.

Changes on Rules and Policies

Although every effort has been made to assure the accuracy of the information in this catalog, students and others who use this catalog should note that laws, rules, and policies change from time to time and that these changes may alter the information contained in this publication. Changes may come in the form of statutes enacted by the Legislature, rules and policies adopted by the Board of Trustees of the California State University, by the Chancellor or designee of the California State University, or by the President or designee of the campus. It is not possible in a publication of this size to include all of the rules, policies and other information that pertain to students, the institution, and the California State University. More current or complete information may be obtained from the appropriate department, school, or administrative office.

Nothing in this catalog shall be construed as, operate as or have the effect of an abridgment or a limitation of any rights, powers, or privileges of the Board of Trustees of the California State University, the Chancellor of the California State University, or the President of the campus. The Trustees, the Chancellor, and the President are authorized by law to adopt, amend, or repeal rules and policies that apply to students. This catalog does not constitute a contract or the terms and conditions of a contract between the student and the campus or the California State University. The relationship of students to the campus and the California State University is one governed by statute, rules, and policy adopted by the Legislature, the Trustees, the Chancellor, the Presidents and their duly authorized designees.
