First-Time Freshman Admission Requirements Do I meet minimum eligibility requirements for the CSU? You are eligible for admission if you:

• Have or will have graduated from high school. • Meet the eligibility index with your grade point average and test scores (see the formula below). • Have or will have completed with a grade of C or better a pattern of courses that total 15 units (see below). A “unit” is one year of study in high school. You may be required to meet higher admission requirements for impacted programs or campuses (see page 5). What is the eligibility index?

Use this formula to see if your grade point average and test scores meet the required eligibility index: SAT Scores:

GPA x 800) + your SAT Total* (________ Your high school GPA (All approved college prep “a-g” courses

My index is taken in 10th, 11th, and 12th grades) __________ GPA x 200) + (10 x ACT Composite)* ACT Scores: (________ Your high school GPA (All approved college prep “a-g” courses My index is taken in 10th, 11th, and 12th grades) __________ *The CSU does not include the SAT or ACT writing scores in the Eligibility Index.

California residents must have a minimum index of 2900 using SAT scores or 694 using ACT scores. Non-California residents must have a minimum index of 3502 using SAT scores or 842 using ACT scores. California Resident Eligibility Index Examples GPA 3.0 2.8 2.6 2.4 2.2 2.0

ACT Composite SAT Total Score Score No minimum score required 14 660 18 820 22 980 26 1140 30 1300

GPA below 2.00 does not qualify for CSU regular admission. The complete Eligibility Index tables for California resident and nonresident students are available at www.csumentor.edu.

What are the 15 units of courses I need?

You must complete with a grade of C or better the following pattern of college preparatory subjects totaling 15 units: 2 years: 4 years: 3 years: 2 years: 2 years: 1 year: 1 year:

Social Science, including one year of U.S. History or U.S. History and Government English Mathematics (Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II; or integrated mathematics including these topics) Science with a laboratory (one year biological and one year physical) Foreign Language (the same language) Visual and Performing Arts: Art, Dance, Theatre/Drama, or Music** Elective chosen from the subject areas listed above or approved college preparatory elective courses

**One year of one discipline, e.g., art, drama, dance, or music. How do I report my courses if my school is not on the semester system?

If your school uses a calendar other than the traditional semester system (two terms per academic year), report all terms and grades earned. For example, if your school is on a trimester system, enter the three grades in the three columns. If your school is on a block system or you receive more than three grades for the year, you may enter the fourth grade to the right of the summer/term column. If your school is on a trimester, quarter, or block calendar, you may need to make an adjustment when you record the total units in each academic area. For

THE CALIFORNIA STATE UNIVERSITY Undergraduate Application

example, “Total English” should be translated into a number that will reflect the number of semesters of that subject if it had been completed on a traditional semester calendar. That is, for a full year of study, the number would be 2 for each year and a total of at least 8 for four years of English. Remember, you can count only courses with grades of C or better. How will the CSU campus know if all admission requirements have been completed?

As a first-time freshman applicant, you are required to submit a final high school transcript after you have completed your senior year of classes. The high school transcript must have a graduation date posted on it. A final review of the transcript will be done to verify that you have completed successfully all required courses and maintained the eligibility index required. The final review may result in a change in admission status. When should I send transcripts?

The campus(es) to which you are applying will inform you when to submit your official high school transcript. Transcripts must be received in sealed envelopes directly from the high school. Is the foreign language requirement ever waived?

If you can demonstrate competency in a language other than English that is equivalent to or higher than that expected of students who have completed two years of foreign language study, you may be allowed a waiver. For further information, contact the CSU campus where you are applying. Are students with disabilities expected to complete the 15 units of college preparatory subjects?

All applicants are encouraged to complete the 15 units of college preparatory subjects. If you are unable to complete certain subjects because of your disability, you should contact the Director of Services to Students with Disabilities at the CSU campus(es) you wish to attend to receive further information about your eligibility to attend the university. Do I have to declare a major to apply to a CSU campus?

Most CSU campuses allow you to apply as an “undeclared” major. You should check with the campus to which you are applying. Do I have to take any placement tests for the CSU?

The results of the English Placement Test (EPT) and the Entry Level Mathematics Test (ELM) are required of all incoming students PRIOR to enrolling in classes; therefore, you will need to take the tests before you attend the CSU unless you are exempt. How can I be exempt from the placement tests?

English Placement Test (EPT): • A score of 550 or higher on the SAT (critical reading) or 24 on the English part of the ACT will exempt you from the EPT.* • A result of “exempt” on the CSU Early Assessment of Readiness for College English based upon the 11th grade augmented CST. This test is often called the EAP (Early Assessment Program). Entry Level Mathematics Test (ELM): • A score of 550 or higher on the SAT Mathematics or 23 on the Math part of the ACT will exempt you from the ELM.* • A result of “exempt” on the CSU Early Assessment of Readiness for College Math, or a result of “conditionally exempt” if you successfully completed an approved mathematics or Advanced Placement (AP) physics course in 12th grade. This test is often called the EAP (Early Assessment Program). Can I take the EPT/ELM tests at any CSU campus?

You may schedule and take the test(s) at any CSU campus. Just indicate on the test form the CSU campus(es) that should receive your scores. For more information about the CSU EPT/ELM tests including test dates and test centers, visit www.ets.org/csu. *Other ELM/EPT exemptions are described in individual CSU campus catalogs, as well as the www.csumentor.edu website.


What does my score on the English Placement Test (EPT) and/or the Entry Level Mathematics Test (ELM) mean?

Depending on your scores on the EPT and/or the ELM, you may be required to complete one or more specific remedial courses upon enrollment as indicated by the campus. Remedial classes must be completed satisfactorily within one academic year. Where can I learn more about CSU admission, placement, and testing requirements?

There are a number of websites that contain more information about CSU requirements related to admission and required competencies in English and mathematics: CSUMentor: www.csumentor.edu CSUMentor allows you to explore campuses; find matches with campuses that meet your needs for academic major, location, and other criteria; learn about admission requirements and services available to students; learn about financial aid; and communicate directly

with campuses when you have specific questions or would like further information.

English Success: www.csuenglishsuccess.org The English Success website provides information and authoritative advice on how to meet the CSU English Placement Test (EPT) requirements and includes practice tests to help students get ready for college-level English.

Mathematics Success: www.csumathsuccess.org The Math Success website offers authoritative advice and information on how to meet the CSU Entry Level Mathematics (ELM) requirement, and provides access to preparatory tools such as online tests, personalized assessments, and real-time online math tutoring.

Transfer Admission Requirements Lower-Division Transfer Admission Requirements

Some campuses restrict enrollment of lower-division transfer students. California residents may be eligible for CSU admission with fewer than 60 transferable semester units (90 quarter units) if they: • Have a college grade point average of 2.00 or better in all transferable college units attempted. • Are in good standing at the last college or university attended, i.e., eligible to re-enroll. • Meet the admission requirements for a first-time freshman or have successfully completed necessary courses to make up the deficiencies they had in high school if they did not complete the 15-unit (a-g) pattern of college preparatory subjects. • Meet the eligibility index required of a freshman. Some campuses may require lower-division transfer students to have completed English composition and general education mathematics prior to transfer. Some campuses do not admit lower-division transfer students. Contact your campus of choice to determine whether there are admission limits on the number of lower-division transfer students. Students who completed college units before they graduated from high school or during the summer between high school graduation and CSU enrollment are considered first-time freshmen and must meet those admission requirements. For more information regarding general education and pre-major requirements, please consult your community college counselor and visit www.assist.org. If I am a lower-division transfer applicant and I do not meet the eligibility index from high school, what do I do?

It is highly recommended that you continue your education at a community college and complete 60 or more transferable semester units (90 quarter units) before attempting to transfer to a CSU. You should complete as many of the general education and pre-major requirements as possible. Upper-Division Transfer Minimum Eligibility Requirements

You are eligible for admission with 60 or more transferable semester units (90 quarter units) if you:

• Have completed or will complete prior to transfer at least 30 semester units (45 quarter units) of courses equivalent to general education requirements with a grade point average of C or better. The 30 units must include all of the general education requirements in communication in the English language (English composition, oral communication, and critical thinking) and at least one course of at least 3 semester units (4 quarter units) in college-level mathematics. What happens if I do not complete the admission requirements?

As a transfer applicant, you are required to submit final college transcripts prior to attendance in CSU classes to verify your successful completion of courses. If you did not complete the courses needed for admission, the CSU campus to which you applied may delay or cancel your admission or enrollment until you successfully complete the required course(s). Note: Some CSU campuses will admit transfer students based on courses “in progress,” and some will not. Please consult the specific campus(es) or their published or electronic materials for specific campus information. When should I send transcripts?

Simultaneous to your applying for admission, request that official transcripts be sent directly from all colleges and universities that you previously attended, even if no course work was completed. If transferring with fewer than 60 transferable semester (90 quarter) units completed, you also must submit your high school transcript and official test scores. Transcripts must be received in sealed envelopes directly from each institution you attended. Do transfer students have to take placement tests in English and math?

Upper-division transfer students who have completed English composition and college-level math courses with grades of C or better are exempt from the English Placement Test (EPT) and the Entry Level Mathematics Test (ELM). Transfer students will be required to take the placement tests if they are not exempt based on their SAT or ACT scores (see the freshman section on EPT/ELM exemptions) or if they have not completed an appropriate English composition course and a college-level math course with grades of C or higher.

• Have a college grade point average of 2.00 or better (2.40 for non-California residents) in all transferable college units attempted. • Are in good standing at the last college or university attended, i.e., you are eligible to re-enroll.

Which application do I fill out if I want to pursue a second bachelor’s degree?

You should complete the online undergraduate application for admission to apply for a second bachelor’s degree. However, applicants for second bachelor’s degrees are considered undeclared postbaccalaureate students even though they will not be pursuing a graduate objective. You will qualify for CSU admission if you: (1) have completed a four-year college course of study and hold an acceptable baccalaureate degree from an institution accredited by a regional

accrediting association or have completed equivalent academic preparation as determined by appropriate campus authorities; (2) are in good academic standing at the last college or university attended; and (3) have attained a grade point average of at least 2.5 (A=4.0) in the last 60 semester (90 quarter) units attempted, or a 2.5 GPA on units included in your bachelor’s degree. Some campuses or departments restrict or prohibit enrollment of second bachelor’s and undeclared postbaccalaureate students.

Undergraduate Financial Aid Information What kind of financial aid is available?

California Domestic Partner Rights and Responsibilities Act

The CSU provides financial assistance in the form of grants, scholarships, loans, fellowships, and part-time employment for students who meet financial aid program eligibility requirements.* If you believe you and your family will not be able to pay for all your educational costs, you are encouraged to apply for financial aid.

If you or your custodial parent are registered with the California Secretary of State’s office as a domestic partner, your eligibility for statefunded financial aid is determined by including consideration of your domestic partner or your parent’s domestic partner and their financial circumstances. However, the income and assets of domestic partners are not used in determining eligibility for federal financial aid and are not reported on the FAFSA. Therefore, after you have completed and filed your FAFSA, you must consult the campus website or contact the financial aid office for additional information and the form required in California in order to recognize the domestic partnership for state and institutional aid purposes.

*CSU financial aid awards are contingent upon continued funding from federal and state government programs. International students who are in the United States on F-1 or F-2 student visas and students who are not citizens or eligible noncitizens are NOT eligible to receive federal or statefunded financial aid and should not apply. How do I apply for financial aid?

You must complete and submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) each year between January 1 and March 2 to be considered for priority filing for the fall term.* All campuses will continue to accept applications after the priority filing date and will make awards as long as funds are available. The FAFSA and other student aid information is available at the U.S. Department of Education’s website, www.fafsa.ed.gov. The FAFSA can be accessed through www.csumentor.edu. Undergraduate California residents must also apply for a Cal Grant from the California Student Aid Commission. Undergraduates applying for a Cal Grant must complete and mail the FAFSA by the March 2 deadline and have their school counselor submit a verified grade point average (GPA) to the commission by the March 2 deadline. Students who graduated from high school or received a GED in 2000-2001 or later are entitled to a Cal Grant if they meet the basic financial requirements, have at least a 2.0 high school GPA, and apply within one year of high school graduation. Community college transfers who graduated from high school during 2000-2001 or later may be eligible for an entitlement grant upon transfer from a community college if they maintain a 2.4 GPA and meet other eligibility criteria. Information on Cal Grants is available at www.csac.ca.gov. What about scholarships?

The number and types of scholarships available vary from campus to campus as do application procedures. If you are interested in applying for a scholarship, you should contact the campus Financial Aid or Scholarship Office to obtain application forms and additional information. Selective Service Registration

The federal Military Selective Service Act (the “Act”) requires most males residing in the United States to present themselves for registration with the Selective Service System within 30 days of their 18th birthday. Most males between the ages of 18 and 25 must be registered. If you were born after December 31, 1959, you may be required to submit a statement of compliance with the Act and regulations in order to receive grant, loan, or work assistance. Selective Service registration forms are available at any U.S. Post Office, and many high schools have a staff member or teacher appointed as a Selective Service Registrar. You can also request that information provided on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) be used to register you with the Selective Service. Information on the Selective Service System is available and the registration process may be initiated online at www.sss.gov.

*Applicants entering in the winter or spring terms should apply for financial

aid as soon as possible after January 1, 2010, for winter or spring 2011.

THE CALIFORNIA STATE UNIVERSITY Undergraduate Application

What if I decide to change my financial aid application to another CSU campus?

You must notify the FAFSA processing service of the name, address, and federal code of your alternate campus if you did not originally include it on your FAFSA. You may do this by accessing your FAFSA online and add institutions on your school list. Can I estimate how much financial aid might be available to me?

Use the CSU Cost Calculator (CSUCC) to estimate how much financial aid might be available to you. You will find the CSUCC form on the Web at www.csumentor.edu. Click on the “Financial Aid” bar and then click on “CSUCC.” Average Costs of Attendance

Following are estimated costs for the 2009-2010 academic year (9 months) for undergraduate students enrolling at CSU campuses.

*$4,026 is the amount undergraduates enrolled in more than 6 units pay; undergraduates in 6 or fewer units pay $2,334. Graduate and postbaccalaureate students enrolled in more than 6 units pay $4,962, and those in 6 units or fewer pay $2,880. Students enrolled in teaching credential programs for a Multiple Subject, Single Subject, or Special Education credential pay $4,674 if they are taking more than 6 units and $2,712 if they are taking 6 or fewer units. **The cost of meals, housing, and personal expenses for students who continue to live with parents or relatives are not expected to increase because of college attendance. Transportation expenses for commuting students will vary depending on the type of transportation used and the distance traveled. Students not classified as California residents must pay nonresident tuition. Nonresident tuition for 2009-2010 is scheduled at $372 per semester unit (or $248 per quarter unit) in addition to the fees listed in the table above. Tuition and fees are subject to change by the Trustees of The California State University without advance notice.


General Information for All Applicants How much does it cost to apply to the CSU?

What is the TOEFL? Who needs to take the TOEFL?

An application processing fee of $55 in U.S. funds, payable to The California State University, is required for each new application filed. The fee is nonrefundable and may not be transferred to another term at any campus. The fee is required for each campus to which you apply.

The Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) is required of all students whose native language is not English and who have not attended schools at the high school level or above for at least three full years of full-time study where English is the principal language of instruction. The TOEFL exam may be taken as a paper exam, or via computer or the Internet.

The application fee for up to four campuses may be waived if you are a California resident from a low-income family for whom the application fee would be an extreme and undue hardship. Both the application fee waiver form and/or payment by credit card are available when you apply online at www.csumentor.edu. What other programs and services are available at the CSU campuses?

Educational Equity Programs, Child Care Centers, Services to Students with Disabilities, Academic Services, Veterans Affairs, Troops to College, and the Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) are among the programs that are available at most campuses. Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) Admission Requirements

Each CSU campus (except California Maritime Academy) has an Educational Opportunity Program for undergraduate students who are California residents and are disadvantaged because of their economic and educational backgrounds. Students with a history of low income who need academic and financial assistance may apply for the program. EOP accepts students who do not meet regular admission criteria, as well as those who qualify for regular admission.Because acceptance to the EOP program is limited, you should file your application for admission to the campus and complete your EOP forms early in the filing period. Please note: The criteria for acceptance to the EOP program at the CSU are more restrictive than those of the EOP&S program at the California Community Colleges. Therefore, you may not be accepted to an EOP program at the CSU, even though you may be an EOP&S student at a California Community College.

What are the CSU immunization requirements?

All students are required to present proof of immunization against measles and rubella, and all students 18 years of age or younger are required to present proof of immunization against hepatitis B (up to three timed doses) before enrolling. The campus will provide you with information on how to complete the requirements. In addition, the campus will provide to first-time freshmen who will reside in on-campus housing information about meningococcal disease.

*Candidates for a second bachelor’s degree must have a TOEFL score of 550 on the paper version, 80 on the Internet version, or 213 on the computer-based exam. Are there opportunities to enroll at more than one campus while I am a CSU student?

Students enrolled at any CSU campus will have access to courses at other CSU campuses on a space-available basis unless those campuses or programs are impacted. The programs include the Concurrent and Visitor Enrollment programs within the CSU and the Cross Enrollment program between the CSU and the California Community Colleges and the University of California. Additional information about these programs is available from the campus admission office. The CSU designates major programs as impacted when more applications are received in the initial filing period from CSU-eligible applicants than can be accommodated by the campus. The initial filing period is defined as the first month(s) of the filing period (October 1 through November 30 for fall terms).

The Office of Services to Students with Disabilities Program provides educational support services to help students with documented physical, perceptual, psychological, or learning disabilities. Services may include registration assistance, campus orientation, disabled person parking, note takers, readers, sign language interpreters, test-taking assistance, supplemental assessment of learning disability, real-time captioning, transcription, disability-related counseling, assistive technology, and referral information. For additional information, contact the Office of Services to Students with Disabilities at the CSU campus you are interested in attending. Contact the Housing Office at the campus you wish to attend to learn about housing on and off campus. Housing applications should be submitted at the same time as your admission application. Some campuses may have additional requirements or early deadlines for campus housing.

Some CSU campuses or particular majors require higher score results than these minimum scores. Please check with the CSU campus in which you are interested for the required scores.

What is an impacted major or program?

What if I require accommodations or support services due to a disability?

Where do I find information about housing at the campuses?

A minimum score of 500 on the paper exam, 61 on the Internet version, or 173 on the computer-based TOEFL is required.*

If you are interested in an impacted major, you must apply during the initial filing period. You will be subject to supplementary admission criteria and may not be accepted into the program. In order to maximize your opportunities, you may wish to consider as a second choice a campus that will continue accepting applications beyond the initial filing period. When CSU-eligible applicants are not accommodated for admission to one impacted CSU campus, they may be re-routed one time to an “open” campus without having to pay another application fee. Which campuses have impacted majors?

Many campuses have some impacted majors that require additional admission criteria. Several majors are impacted at one or more but not all of the campuses offering the major. Generally, the majors remain the same from one year to the next, but the criteria are subject to change, and you should contact the campus directly for the most current information or go to www.csumentor.edu (search for “impacted programs”). Detailed information about the 2010-2011 CSU impacted campuses and programs/majors can be accessed at www.calstate.edu/impactioninfo.shtml. All majors at San Luis Obispo (SLO) and most majors at San Diego (SD) as well as Long Beach (LB) are impacted. As a guide for 2010-2011 admission, the following majors are impacted at presstime at one or more campuses in addition to San Diego and San Luis Obispo: Animal Health Science (Pomona) Animal Science (Pomona) Apparel Design & Merchandising (San Francisco) Architecture (Pomona, SLO) Art (Long Beach, SD, SLO) Biology (Long Beach, SD, SLO)

Residence Classification

Generally, to be eligible for California resident classification, an adult applicant must have established and maintained permanent residence in California at least one year prior to the applicable residence determination date. A minor’s residence classification is based on the permanent residence of his or her parents. Residence determination dates for each academic term are:

Nonresident tuition may be waived for certain nonresident students who have attended high school in California for at least three full years and have graduated from a California high school or received the equivalent. Students applying for the exemption should request from the campus Admission Office the “California Nonresident Tuition Exemption Request” form, complete the document, and show proof of attendance and graduation from a California high school. Students without lawful immigration status also must declare on the request form with a CSU campus that they have filed an application with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) to legalize their immigration status or that they will do so as soon as they are eligible to do so.

Residence Determination Dates

Resident Classification Appeal Process

Residence Classification Information

Under California law, campuses must determine the residence status of all new and returning students. Nonresidents are required to pay nonresident tuition and meet other conditions, unless an exception applies.

Quarter Calendars Fall: September 20 Winter: January 5 Spring: April 1 Summer: July 1

Semester Calendars Fall: September 20 Winter: January 5 (Stanislaus only) Spring: January 25 Summer: June 1

Proof of residence requires evidence of both physical presence and intent to remain indefinitely in California established at least one year before the residence determination date. In addition, other rules and exceptions apply. Failure to provide requested information or complete all residence questions may result in a nonresident classification or denial of admission. The rules and regulations that govern residency classification are subject to change, e.g., between the date of publication and the time that a residency classification decision is made. Applicants whose residency status for fee purposes may be uncertain are encouraged to check with the residency clerk for the campus(es) to which they are seeking admission.

If you disagree with a campus decision regarding your residence classification, your appeal must be received by the Office of General Counsel at the address below within 120 days of the final campus decision regarding your residence status. That office may make a decision on the issue or send the matter back to the campus for further review. To file an appeal of residence classification, write to: The California State University, Office of General Counsel, 401 Golden Shore, Long Beach, California 90802-4210. If you have questions about the regulations that govern residence determination or your status under those regulations, refer to the summary of the regulations that appears in the campus catalogs, or consult a campus residence clerk.
