Application Process

Applications for Spring 2020 will be accepted beginning August 1, 2019.

Admission Requirements

Admission to the program is based on the standard CSU transfer requirements: 60 semester units of transferable college-level work with a C average, completed by the end of the semester before enrollment in the program. (Summer and Winter Intersession not included). Thirty of these units must be in general education at a C or better, including A1 (Speech), A2 (Composition), A3 (Critical Thinking) and B4 (Math/Quantitative Reasoning), plus B1 Physical or B2 Biological Science with Lab. Entrance requirements can be in progress or planned when you apply, but they must be completed by the end of the Fall or Spring semester preceding enrollment.

Pre-Admission Advising

Prospective students are strongly encouraged to seek advising before submitting an application. As of August 1, 2018, we are revising our assessment processes and our response to evaluation requests may be delayed for a time.

In the meantime, you can visit your local community college's Transfer Center for an assessment of your CSU transferability and to work out a plan to take care of any missing requirements.

You will need to supply complete transcripts from all colleges attended. Unofficial transcripts are fine for general assessment purposes but current official transcripts are better, as they will contain all coursework taken and more detailed information is coded on official transcripts that may be necessary to get a complete picture of your situation.
