Cal State Apply Freshman


Every year, the 23 campuses of the CSU welcome tens of thousands of freshmen. This is the place to start your own journey to a successful college career —​ and a degree.

​Starting with the Fall 2020 application cycle, the fee to apply to the CSU will change from $55 per campus to $70 per campus. Some students may qualify for an application fee waiver. The increased fee does not apply to those who apply for the Spring 2020 term. ​
