| The first step in the application
When the Physics and Astronomy Department Office receives this information, the completed file is forwarded to the graduate admissions committee, which evaluates the applicant's file and recommends admission or denial based on the following criteria:
A conditionally classified student must meet
as specific course equivalencies) as stated in the letter of acceptance
the Graduate Program. Any specific conditional course requirements must
taken on a letter grade basis and may not be used as part of the
Master's course requirements. Students are advanced to candidacy (and
full classified status)
upon filing the graduate approved program (GAP)- usually at the
beginning of your final year of study. Other than
conditions that must be satisfied prior to filing their GAP,
conditionally classified graduate students have the full privileges and
opportunities of all graduate students.
All students will take a placement test prior to enrolling in classes. After the test each student will meet with the graduate coordinator to work out an appropriate program of study.The Graduate Studies section of the San Francisco State University Bulletin is a comprehensive source of all the Master's degree requirements.
