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 preparatory electives.
