Steps After You Are Being Admitted to CSUSB

Now that I have been admitted to Cal State San Bernardino, what am I supposed to do next?

Here are steps to guide you beyond the admission process and into the registered student phase.

  1. Clearing Admission Requirements/Qualifying for Full Admission:

    In order to be considered fully admitted to Cal State San Bernardino, you must submit official transcripts with final grades and course work that reflect you have maintained your eligibility to the university. For first-time freshmen and lower division transfer students, this includes a transcript that reflects graduation from high school. All transfer students must submit a final college transcript. If there are any courses still in progress on a college transcript, you will not qualify for full admission.

    Applicants will be considered fully admitted when an admissions officer verifies that the student has completed all coursework in progress at a satisfactory level.

    Failure to submit final transcripts will result in a hold being placed against registration for subsequent terms and the processing of transcript requests from Cal State San Bernardino.

    All official transcripts for undergraduate students may be mailed to:

    California State University, San Bernardino Center for International Studies and Programs
    International Admissions
    5500 University Parkway CE-356
    San Bernardino, CA 92407
    U.S.A.

    OR

    you may deliver sealed official transcripts to the CSUSB Center for International Studies and Programs in College of Education building, Room 356.

    All official transcripts for graduate students may be mailed to:

    California State University, San Bernardino Center for International Studies and Programs
    International Admissions
    5500 University Parkway CE-356
    San Bernardino, CA 92407
    U.S.A.

  2. EPT/ELM Testing & Exemptions:

    The California State University requires each entering undergraduate, to take the CSU English Placement Test (EPT) and CSU Entry Level Mathematics (ELM) examination prior to registration. These placement tests are not a condition of admission. They are designed to identify entering students who may need additional support in acquiring college entry-level English and mathematical skills necessary to succeed in CSU baccalaureate-level courses.

    Many students qualify for exemption from placement tests. The most common ways students may earn an exemption from the EPT are by presenting proof of the following:

    • A score of “exempt” in the CSU Early Assessment Program (EAP) taken in the 11th grade as part of the California Standards Test
    • A score of 500 or higher on the critical reading or verbal section of the College Board SAT Reasoning Test
    • A score of 22 or above on the enhanced ACT English Test
    • A score of 3 or higher on the AP English language/composition or the English literature/composition tests
    • A score of 4 or higher on the High-Level IB English A1
    • Completion of a transferable course that satisfies the General Education-Breadth within written communication requirement with a grade of “C” or better

    The most common ways students may earn an exemption from the ELM are by presenting proof of the following:

    • A score of “exempt” in the CSU Early Assessment Program (EAP) taken in the 11th grade as part of the California Standards Test
    • A score of 550 or higher on the mathematics section of the College Board SAT Reasoning Test
    • A score of 23 or above on the ACT Mathematics Test
    • A score of 3 or higher on the AP calculus AB, BC or statistics examinations
    • Completion of a transferable course that satisfies the General Education-Breadth within the quantitative reasoning requirement with a grade of “C” or better

    EPT/ELM testing dates and registration information is available online. (http://www-ugs.csusb.edu/testing/)

  3. Mandatory Advising at the Center for International Studies and Programs:

    The international student orientation program is held each quarter for new graduate and undergraduate students. The program provides important information to guide students toward their academic and personal goals.

    New international students must always register at our center upon arrival to the U.S.A. Registration is included as part of the mandatory new student orientation program that is offered each quarter.

  4. Health Screening / Proof of Vaccinations:

    All new and readmitted Cal State San Bernardino students are required to present proof of immunizations for measles and rubella and hepatitis B before the beginning of their second quarter of enrollment. These are not admission requirements. They are required of students as conditions of enrollment in CSU.

    For further information on these requirements and possible exemption, please contact the Student Health Center’s Immunization Hotline at (909) 537-7356, or visit the Student Health Center online or call (909) 537-5241.
