Application Tips

  • Make sure you have all of your unofficial transcripts available when you fill out your Cal State Apply application. You’ll be asked to fill out all your coursework with grades as part of the application. Please use the Freshman Course Entry Guide  or the Cal State Apply Transfer Credit Entry Guide at the bottom of the page when filling out this section of the application.
  • Read instructions on how to submit your official SAT scores or ACT scores to Cal State Apply, and be sure to request your scores be sent using the CSU code 3594 for SAT and the HSU code for ACT which is 0286. Make sure your name, birthdate, and College Board ID and/or ACT ID match what’s on your test results.
  • If you’re eligible for a CSU application fee waiver, an additional section will appear when you submit your application.
