Returning Students

Readmission Categories

The following readmission categories pertain to former CSU, San Bernardino (CSUSB) students who successfully completed at least one semester in a degree-seeking baccalaureate program. Readmission consideration is based on both the academic standing when they left as well as whether they have attempted units since their enrollment in CSUSB degree program. Degree-seeking students who are on an approved leave of absence one or two consecutive semesters do not need to reapply for admission. For more information about a return from a leave of absence, please visit the Office of the Registrar website.
