Admissions Requirements

The CSUSB campus policy for admission to a post-baccalaureate program is a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.50. If the cumulative GPA is below 2.50, the graduate admissions evaluators will also calculate the GPA of the last 90 units attempted. Title V regulations state that the minimum GPA for admission is 2.50; therefore, if both the cumulative GPA and the last 90 GPA are below 2.50, admission will be denied. Applications that meet the minimum GPA requirements are sent to the program for an admission decision. Please keep in mind that programs have additional admission requirements.

You have a right to appeal this decision within 15 days of this notification. Applicants must submit a written appeal to the Office of Graduate Studies. Appeals will be reviewed by the graduate program and answered before the last day of registration for the term to which you have applied.

Writing Requirement for Graduate Candidacy

Graduate students are required to complete their program’s writing requirement before being classified or advanced to candidacy. Each program determines how the requirement will be satisfied. Once admitted, students should contact their graduate coordinator to discuss options for meeting this requirement.
