Transferring to CSUCI

CSU Channel Islands welcomes applications from transfer students. A student is considered a transfer student if they have enrolled at a community college/university. Typically, CSU Channel Islands accepts upper division transfer students who have completed a minimum of 60 or more semester transferable units or 90 or more quarter units. These students are admitted in both the fall and spring semesters with the exception of Nursing majors, which are only admitted in the fall.

When to Apply:

  • Fall 2022 application filing period is from October 1 to the extended deadline of December 31, 2021 by 11:59 PM PDT  (for all non-impacted majors)
    • Admissions application for Nursing for Transfer for fall 2022 is closed. 

CSUCI offers only one stateside second-baccalaureate degree program, which is in Nursing. When applying to this program (fall enrollment, only) students will select “BSN-Nursing (2nd Bachelor). Refer to for details.

CSU Channel Islands also offers bachelor's degrees and second baccalaureate degrees through Extended University in the areas of Business, Psychology, and Nursing for those who meet qualifications. Student fees fund this program, so costs will be higher than with state-supported (“stateside”) programs. Please visit for details.
