College admissions

To be eligible for admission to a four-year university, students must meet subject requirements. These requirements represent the minimum academic standards for eligibility. Meeting the minimum eligibility requirements does not guarantee admission. Admission to the campus and program of choice often requires students to meet more demanding standards including high entrance examination test scores. All courses taken to satisfy college admission requirements must be completed with a semester grade of C or higher. 

high school subject requirements

The CSU requires a minimum 15-unit pattern of courses for admission as a first-time freshman. Each unit is equal to a year of study in a subject area. A grade of C or higher is required for each course you use to meet any subject requirement.  The minimum GPA requirement for CSU is a 2.0 (C average).  For more information regarding CSU campuses, areas of study and the eligibility index please visit the CSU website.

Want to PLAN ahead?  Access the High School Planner through CSU Mentor:  Explore campuses, check into financial aid programs, enter your high school classes and grades (A-G requirements).  The high school planner is interactive, and will help you stay on track for meeting admission requirements.
