About the Program

Academic Pathway Program (APP) is designed for international students who want to begin their undergraduate degree program, but do not have required 2.5 high school Grade Point Average (GPA) for California State University, San Bernardino (CSUSB) admission.  The APP program allows students to be conditionally admitted to a CSUSB undergraduate program so you can earn university credits for full undergraduate degree study at CSUSB.

Participants will receive 24 academic credits for completed courses which will transfer towards their undergraduate degree requirements.

Participants that complete APP with a GPA of 2.75 or higher will be fully admitted to their bachelor degree program at CSUSB.

Why Choose APP?

  • Earn your CSUSB bachelor’s degree in 4 years
  • Guarantee to transfer to CSUSB bachelor’s degree programs after successful completion with a 2.75 GPA
  • 24 units of academic courses that are transferable to CSUSB and U.S. universities.
  • Take courses with other CSUSB students
  • Fully access to CSUSB campus resources and facilities
