How and when can I apply?

Applications are accepted through Cal State Apply,, from October 1 through March 30 for the following Fall semester; for Spring, August 1 through September 30.  Applications can be accepted on a space-available basis after the priority deadline. Begin your application when you are ready. You can save your progress and come back later.

We strongly suggest that students complete all 70 transferable community college units before joining the program. It can be disappointing to finish your major and still have to take care of some lower-division general education coursework before being able to graduate. However, if you are planning on transferring with 70 units, please be sure to complete an Ethnic Studies course as well as meet the US Constitution, American History, and California State & Local Government requirements.
