CI reviews all applications and transcripts for CSU eligibility. If after review of all submitted documents a student is deemed not admissible, the student can elect to appeal the decision. Students will have 15 business days from date of denial of admission notification to submit an appeal. In addition, students can only submit one appeal per academic term.

The student must complete the following steps:

1. Download and complete the form appropriate for the appeal.
