Students planning to enter the CSU can apply though the online application tool,
CSUMentor, at www.CSUMentor.edu.
CSUMentor is also designed to help students and their families in
choosing a CSU campus, planning to meet admissions requirements, and getting
answers to frequently asked questions.
The CSU accepts the top third of all high school graduates—the equivalent of a B
average. Students with a grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 and above automatically
qualify for admission. Students with a GPA below 2.0 do not qualify for regular
admission. The admission of students falling between these two cutoff points 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
languages, one year of visual and performing arts, and one year of college
