Admission - CSU Application Procedures and Policies for Graduate and Post-Baccalaureate
All graduate applicants and post-baccalaureate (e.g., Ed.D., joint Ph.D applicants master's degree applicants, those seeking educational credentials or certificates, and where permitted, holders of baccalaureate degrees interested in taking courses for personal or professional growth through regular or special session but not through Open University, students who have stopped out for more than one semester, students who have been disqualified) must file a complete graduate application as described in the graduate admission materials at www.calstate.edu/apply.
Applicants who completed undergraduate degree requirements and graduated the preceding term are also required to complete and submit an application and the $55 nonrefundable application fee. Because applicants for graduate programs are limited to the choice of a single campus on each application, the university will not re-route applications to alternate campuses or make later changes in programs, with few exceptions. To be assured of initial consideration by more than one campus, it is necessary to submit separate applications (including fees) to each. Applications submitted by way of www.calstate.edu/apply are expected unless submission of an electronic application is impossible. An electronic version of the CSU graduate application is available at www.calstate.edu/apply.
