General Graduate/Post Baccalaureate Admission Requirements

The minimum requirements for admission to graduate or post baccalaureate studies at a California State University campus are in accordance with university regulations as well as Title 5, chapter 1, subchapter 3 of the California Code of Regulations. Specifically, you will qualify for admission if you:

  • have completed a four-year college course of study and hold an acceptable baccalaureate degree from an institution accredited by a regional accrediting association, or shall have completed equivalent academic preparation as determined by appropriate campus authorities,
  • are in good academic standing at the last college or university attended,
  • have attained a grade point average of at least 2.5 in an acceptable earned baccalaureate degree,
  • have attained a grade point average of at least 2.5 (A = 4.0) in the last 60 semester (90 quarter) units attempted,
  • meet the professional, personal, scholastic, and other standards for graduate study, including qualifying examinations and specific course and/or grade prerequisites, as appropriate campus authorities may prescribe.

In unusual circumstances, a campus may make exceptions to these criteria.

If you meet the minimum requirements for graduate and post baccalaureate studies, you will be considered for admission in one of the four categories detailed in the Categories of Graduate Students section.

Due to enrollment demands, some campuses do not admit 2nd baccalaureate degree students.
