IV.  Academic Credit
.  The exact language from Cal State University East Bay is as follows:

 Courses numbered 7000-7799
(NOTE: all of our courses are in this series).

"These courses are upper division undergraduate or post-baccalaureate level courses that have been structured in accordance with requirements for the Cal State University East Bay (CSUEB) regular academic programs and are usually transferable for elective-units credit toward the Bachelor's degree (with a 36 unit maximum) and educational credentials at CSUEB. Their applicability for any other programs (e.g. graduate course work, programs at other universities) is determined by that department or University. 

"Generally, these courses are accepted by school districts for advancement on the salary scale and are used as elective units toward this State's Preliminary and/or Clear teaching credential or Supplementary Authorizations."

 V.  Conversion Chart from Quarter to Semester Units. 

CSUEB courses are "measured" in quarter units of credit, convertible to semester units of credit by multiplying quarter units by 2/3.

1 2/3
2 1 and 1/3
3 2
4 2 and 2/3
