CSU Facts 2008

Students planning to enter the CSU can apply though the online application tool, CSUMentor. 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.
