Candidates for degrees in Master of Science programs must apply separately to both the university and the program by posted deadlines. Applications should be submitted at the same time. Program application deadlines may vary. Visit the College of Education website for program details, application guidelines and materials, and application deadlines (www.ced.csulb.edu/academic/masters.cfm). All university regulations governing the master's degree apply to college programs. Program requirements published in the university catalog in effect during the year a candidate advances to candidacy are the requirements the candidate will be held to (catalog rights).
