The process of applying to a university in the United States can be confusing at times. We are here to help.
A freshman student is a student starting university for the first time and has not completed any courses after completing their secondary school. Usually the student is enrolling directly out of high school/secondary school with no previous university experience.
A student who is coming to SDSU from another university (whether based within the United States or not) or has completed any course work at the post-secondary level is considered a transfer student.
A student who has obtained the equivalent of a U.S. bachelor's degree and is planning on pursuing education beyond the Bachelor's degree at the Master's level should apply as a graduate student. (Previous degree students who wish to add an additional undergraduate major should apply as a transfer student.)
