Students planning to enter the CSU have a valuable online tool, CSUMentor,TM 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.

Beginning with the fall 2005 academic year, all students will apply online through CSUMentor. 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 (GPA) 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 that 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.
