  • Be sure to list every course on your transcript, even if it isn't transferable.

Next Steps

  1. Check your email regularly!  You should get an email from CalStateApply immediately after submitting your application.
  2. Within a week of submitting your application, you should receive an email from the CSU campus.  This email usually gives you instructions on setting up a student account with their campus, which includes a new email address.  Start checking this email often!  If you don't receive an email from the CSU campus, call their admissions office to confirm that they received your application.  
  3. Be aware of transcript deadlines.  The CSU will need 2 transcripts from SCCCD: one will be due now and one will be due at the end of the in-progress semester.  Every CSU that you apply to will need a set of transcripts from each college you've attended and transcripts for any test credit such as AP, IB or CLEP.
  4. Once admitted you will need to accept your conditional admission.  
  5. Each CSU may have different requirements and deadlines.  Be sure to check your email regularly and stay on top of this information!
