Criminal Justice is now an impacted major. Please see our site on impaction and the current requirements for admission to the major.
The Criminal Justice minor is currently suspended; no new minors are being accepted at this time.
Orientation is mandatory for students who wish to later declare Criminal Justice as a major. You will learn about program requirements; and meet the staff of the Criminal Justice Advising Center.
Transfer students should familiarize themselves with the current requirements for admission to the Criminal Justice major. Because in-progress grades are no longer acceptable, students should be sure to complete the lower-division course requirements at least one semester prior to their transfer to Sac State. Students who have the required lower-division coursework in progress at the time of admission to Sac State will not be eligible to apply to the major until the next major admission cycle; this does not affect the student's admission to the University, but will delay progress in the major.

Students who have been accepted to the major will be assigned an advisor. Meeting with your assigned advisor for course planning during your first semester at CSUS will greatly assist in shaping your program to your career goals and in charting the shortest course to graduation.
