Students planning to enter the CSU have a valuable online tool, CSUMentorTM,
which is designed to help students and their families in choosing a CSU campus, planning
to meet admissions requirements and getting answers to frequently asked questions.
CSUMentorTM is designed to be useful throughout the admissions process, from
the time students begin their research in middle school or high school through the time
they’re ready to apply to the school of their choice.
The site is accessible at www.csumentor.edu.
The CSU accepts the top third of all high school
graduates, which is the equivalent of a B average.
Specifically, students with a grade point average of
3.0 and above automatically qualify for admission.
Students with a GPA below a 2.0 do not qualify for
regular admission. Admission of students with a GPA
between 2.0 and 3.0 is determined by a combination
of GPA and standardized test scores.
Entering freshmen are required to have completed a
college-preparatory curriculum which includes four
years of English, three years of mathematics, two
years of U.S. history/government, two years of
laboratory science, two years of foreign language
study, one year of visual and performing arts, and one
year of college preparatory electives.
