Students applying after the initial filing period should consult the campus admissions office for current information. Similar information is conveniently available at

Application Acknowledgment

On-time applicants may expect to receive an acknowledgment from their first-choice campus within two to four weeks after filing the application. The notice may also include a request that applicants submit additional records necessary to evaluate academic qualifications. Applicants may be assured of admission if the evaluation of relevant qualifications indicates that applicants meet CSU admission requirements, and in the case of admission impaction, campus requirements for admission to an impacted program. An offer of admission is not transferable to another term or to another campus.

Undergraduate Requirement Deadlines

Prior to matriculation (official registration as a CSULB-admitted student), students must complete, in a timely manner, admission requirements — including subject requirements, unit minimums, grade-point averages, final transcript and testing requirement.
