If you are required to participate in Early Start, then you must do so in order to enroll in fall classes. Your admission is subject to cancellation for failure to enroll in and satisfactorily complete the Early Start Program by the established deadlines (see “Early Start Deadlines” section).

Students who are unable to participate in Early Start because of extenuating circumstances must submit a request to be exempted from the requirement. Failure to routinely review your myCI student portal, read email messages sent by the University, or adhere to deadlines are not likely to be viewed by the Admissions Appeal Committee as being extenuating reasons to grant your appeal. Requests must be received in the Admissions Office by June 15. Please email Admissions (admissions@csuci.edu) and include the following information:

  1.  Full Legal Name
  2. Dolphin ID Number
  3. Briefly explain why you are unable to participate in Early Start. Attach any documentation that might help us to better understand your extenuating circumstance.

We will email our decision within 10-business days.
