The following are the two major types of appeals that will be considered:

1. Appeals for Not Being CSU Eligible
Provisional admission decisions are based on an evaluation of the self-reported data you submitted on your application.

By the end of the spring semester (prior to fall entry), transfer applicants must:

  • Have earned 60 CSU transferable semester units or 90 CSU transferable quarter units;
  • Have a college GPA of 2.00 or better in all transferable college units completed;
  • Be in good academic standing (eligible to re-enroll at the last college or university attended); AND
  • Have completed the following classes with a grade of C or better:
    • Oral communication
    • Written communication
    • Critical thinking
    • College level mathematics/quantitative reasoning. College Algebra will satisfy this requirement only if the course is from a California Community College or a California State University campus.  The course must also appear on the community college's GE-Breadth pattern and the CSU campus's GE pattern.

2. Appeals for Missing a Deadline or Obligation
You may have been denied admission or your admission was withdrawn for failure to:

  • Submit final official transcript(s) from all colleges and universities attended by the established deadline.
