Freshman Admissions

CSU Channel Islands welcomes first time freshmen applicants! A student is considered a first-time freshman if they have graduated from (or are still in) high school and have not enrolled in a regular (non-summer) session at any college or university following graduation. If you have already graduated from high school and have attended a college/university after your high school graduation, you may be considered a transfer student. Refer to the Transfer Admission Website to determine admissibility.

When to Apply:

  • Fall 2023: application filing period is from October 1, 2022 - January 31, 2023 at 11:59 p.m. PST. (new extended deadline, not available for Mechatronics Engineering for Freshmen)
