Effective for Incoming Students in the 2008/2009 Catalog Year

Students choosing the undergraduate major in Hospitality and Tourism Management are first admitted to the pre-HTM major for their first two years of university work. During these two years, students should complete general education courses and the 30 unit lower division preparation for the major courses. These prerequisite/preparation for the major courses may not be taken CR/NC; the minimum grade in each class is C. In addition, students must have completed a minimum of 60 transferable semester units. To complete the major, students must fulfill the degree requirements for the major described in the catalog in effect at the time they are accepted into SDSU (assuming continuous enrollment.) Supplemental admissions criteria must be met before students may declare an upper division major and be eligible for upper division courses. For current information concerning admissions criteria and procedures, contact the School of Hospitality and Tourism Management Office (PSFA building, room 436).
