The California State University is committed to helping high school and community college students to overcome college admissions challenges presented by the physical closures of schools. The CSU has taken steps to ensure students are not adversely impacted by these disruptions and can achieve their CSU education as scheduled.
The CSU has temporarily relaxed some undergraduate admissions standards for both newly admitted students and prospective students to account for changes in grading and administration of standardized tests.
The information below provides guidance for incoming First-Time First Year Students for Fall 2020 and beyond.

CSU will consider course grades of “credit" or “pass" as fulfilling “a-g" requirements for those courses completed during winter, spring, or summer 2020 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.
