Several CSU campuses make preliminary offers of admission to first-time freshman applicants whose high school grade point average (based on "a-g" college preparatory courses) is 3.00 and above on the basis of information provided on the application for admission.
For applicants with a GPA of lower than 3.00, test scores are required. Applicants for whom admission decisions cannot be made on the basis of information submitted for initial admission processing will be notified of additional information requirements by the campus. Thorough and accurate completion of the application will expedite initial admission processing. Academic performance information provided on the application and final CSU admission eligibility are verified following receipt of the official high school transcript showing date of graduation.
All campuses require submission of a final high school transcript showing date of graduation. In the absence of final high school transcripts, which indicate the date of graduation, offers of admission, schedules of classes, financial aid awards, and/or housing contracts may be subject to cancellation.
