GPA Requirement to Declare CCJS Major or Minor

Do you require a minimum GPA to declare a CCJS major or minor?

Yes.  The Department of Criminology and Criminal Justice Studies currently requires a 3.00 minimum cumulative GPA to declare a CCJS major or minor, whether as a first time freshman or as a transfer student.

CCJS is an impacted major, which means that it has been officially determined to not have enough resources to meet student demand and must therefore restrict the number of students who can major in it.  This is a fact of life for many majors in the California State University system. In CCJS, this means that the department relies on a minimum cumulative GPA requirement for admitting students into the major or minor.
