Admissions & How to Apply

Centralized Applications to All CSUs

Cal State Apply is a Centralized Application Service (CAS) that simplifies the process of applying to California State University (CSU) programs. 

You start by selecting the programs you wish to apply to; then, you submit one application that includes all necessary materials. Once received by Cal State Apply, your application and materials are transmitted to all of your selected programs. 

Cal State Apply is a website designed to help students and their families learn about the California State University (CSU) system. The CSU is comprised of 23 excellent campuses. Cal State Apply assists students in planning for college, selecting the appropriate CSU campus to attend, planning how to finance their education, and applying for admission.

Cal State Apply is free to use. The student will only pay the application fee charged by the CSU campus when an application for admission is submitted. All personal data entered by the user is not released without the user's express consent, and data entered in a planner can be transferred easily to an online application for admission.
