The California State University (CSU) system is taking all necessary steps to mitigate the disruptions caused by COVID-19 while ensuring the health and safety for our students, faculty, staff and communities. With the advent of the COVID-19 pandemic, it became necessary to adjust some CSU admission requirements for Fall 2020 incoming students. As the pandemic continues to exert significant impacts on California communities, the CSU will be providing accommodations for Fall 2021 and Fall 2022 incoming students.
The CSU system and CSU campuses are prepared to continue exercising flexibility and accommodation when working with our educational partners and Fall 2021 and Fall 2022 applicants in meeting admission requirements and the subsequent steps toward matriculation.
The following information is provided for school districts, schools, community colleges, colleges, educators, prospective students and applicants regarding CSU admission and provides a high-level overview of the guidance.

CSU will consider course grades of “credit” or “pass” as fulfilling “a-g” requirements for those courses completed during Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall 2020 terms and during Winter, Spring or Summer 2021 terms. All other coursework must be graded and a grade of C- or better must be earned for the course to satisfy “a-g” requirements. Grades of credit/pass or no credit/no pass will not be included in the calculation of high school GPA.
