Transcript and Test Score Requirements

Self-Reported Grades/Information
Transfer admission offers are normally based on self-reported information provided in the Supplemental Application for Transfer Applicants. Those who are offered admission will need to submit official documents, including transcripts from all schools attended, in order to verify the information reported. Applicants must contact the campus office of admission directly regarding final deadline of official transcripts for submission for fall term and for more detailed information in completing their application process. It is the applicant’s responsibility to request transcripts from all institutions previously attended as well as other required documents such as test scores.

Conditional Admission Based on Transcripts or Work-in-Progress

All 23 CSU campuses will offer "conditional admission" based on transcripts or work-in-progress. For CSU Channel Islands, only the most recent attempt will be used for unit and grade calculations.

All 23 campuses reserve the right to cancel admission for failure to submit documents by the posted deadlines. Applicants are encouraged to contact their campus office of admission directly for more information.
