Meals or light refreshments may be permitted if the expenses occur infrequently, are reasonable and appropriate to the business purpose in accordance with campus policy.

This should be documented in the campus procedures.

Infrequent is defined by the IRS as no more than 12 times per year per group.

  1. Gift card, gift basket, flowers or other non-cash gift as a thank you to consultants, guest speakers, or employees at another campus
  2. Gifts for employee birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, baby showers, etc.
  3. Farewell gatherings and retirement parties.
  4. Bereavement or sympathy gifts.
  1. Awards to students to participate in a non-researched (grant) funded survey. (Subject to IRS tax laws)
  2. Incentives to anyone, including employees, to participate in a research funded survey or study, within the terms of the grant and the grant serves an instructional purpose. (Subject to IRS tax laws)
  3. Awards and recognition to students
  4. Decorations purchased as part of a ceremony at a public event.
  5. Expense related to Fundraising in support of providing a better student experience.

Typically no. Employee meetings that are carried out on a regular or frequent basis are not permitted under this policy. Additionally, public expenditures that are driven solely by personal motives are an impermissible use of state funds. However, if the business purposes for such an expense complies with campus, CSU, IRS and Government Code restrictions then it could be allowed.

No, parties are not allowed. An employee can be recognized for superior accomplishments, within specified campus guidelines.

When a meeting takes place over an extended period and the agenda includes a working meal, there may be justification that the meal is integral to the business function. Considerations include: 
  1. Meals or light refreshments provided to employees on a frequent or routine basis are considered taxable income by the IRS and are therefore not permitted under this policy.
  1. Meals or light refreshments should be limited to no more than twelve times per year, per group.
  2. Meals or light refreshments provided to a group should be counted on an event basis, e.g., a two-day meeting should be counted as one event in determining compliance with these guidelines.


 Examples where food and beverage may be permitted include:

  • A meeting where there is a scheduled speaker during the meal period;
  • A meeting where the participants work through the meal period; or

Circumstances where it would be too time-consuming or disruptive for participants to take a meal break away from the meeting location.

Typically no. Reimbursement for meals are not permissible when there is solely a personal benefit. In general, business meeting with individual colleagues is not permitted. There may be justification if the business purposes for such an expense complies with campus; CSU, IRS and Government Code restrictions then it could be allowed. Campus procedure to define.

State University Trust fund (state fund 0948) is continuously appropriated by the legislature (EC§89700-89726) and therefore all CSU funds within state fund 0948 are state [public] funds. This includes, but is not limited to, State University Parking Revenue Fund (EC §89701(b)), State University [Health] Facilities Revenue Fund (Education Code §89702(c)), State University Continuing Education Revenue Fund (Education Code §89704(a)), CSU Dormitory Revenue Fund (Education Code §90036) and Lottery (Government Code 8880.5).

Typically, no, Gifts or flowers are not permissible when there is solely a personal benefit. There may be justification if the intended business purposes complies with campus, CSU, IRS and Government Code restrictions. Campus procedure to define.

An employee can be recognized for superior accomplishments, within specified campus guidelines. Life transition events like birthdays, weddings, and the like, occur to everyone so cannot be considered superior accomplishments. Awards are permitted within the campus defined monetary limits and subject to IRS reporting requirements. Awards may be given to recognize years of service at the time of retirement, but the statutory authority to make awards does not authorize paying for a “retirement party”.

The California gift of public funds doctrine set forth in the California Constitution, Article XVI, § 6, prohibits the giving or lending of public funds to any person or entity, public or private.
 
“In determining whether an appropriation of state funds or property is to be considered a gift, the primary question is whether the funds are to be used for a “public” or “private” purpose. If they are for a “public purpose”, they are not a gift within the meaning of [§6 of art. XVI]. If an expenditure serves a primary public purpose, it is not a gift even if it incidentally benefits an individual.

Meal swipes do not roll over onto the following week or quarter. The swipes per week reset to the number on your meal plan at 12:00 AM on Sundays.  

Dining Dollars expire when you are no longer actively enrolled.

Unfortunately, we can't allow you to take food out of the dining hall as they would not be packaged appropriately and would not maintain the high food safety temperature standards we have in place.  Your best bet for quick food would be at Howl & Growl or the Coyote Market on the other side of the building for sandwiches, salads, snacks, beverages, burgers and much more!

Yes!  Come connect and dine with friends and faculty.  You can pay the listed door price or, if you purchase one of the Commuter Meal Plans or one from this list, then you’ll have swipes to use throughout the academic year.  (At the door price varies by meal time).

We are happy to help.  If you have a special diet or food allergy, contact the Coyote Dining office to schedule a one-on-one consultation at (909) 537-5917.  We can help you find the right foods and enjoy dining with friends.

Once you purchase a meal plan, it will be loaded onto your Coyote OneCard within 24 hours. Just present your Coyote OneCard at the time of payment to take advantage of your meal plan.

Go to Campus ITS to request a new Coyote OneCard.

Dining Dollars act like cash (dollar for dollar) and can be redeemed at all campus food service locations, including Starbucks, Einstein Bros Bagels, Howl & Growl, Coyote Markets and much more!
 

All-you-care-to-eat (AYCE) allows you to eat what you want from different stations within the new University Dining Hall at CSUSB, located within the Coyote Commons at the cost of one meal swipe, or the listed door price.

Compliance trainings are courses and/or workshops where every CSUSB employee is required to complete. These trainings do not count towards learning activity hours.

If the conference topics are unique, then yes, the conference may count as credit hours in two separate months. If the conference topics are identical, then no, the conference will only count in of the months of your choosing. 

Since most courses or classes focus on one subject, the course or class will not count as credit for multiple months.

First-time facilitation/co-facilitation of content to an audience may count towards monthly learning hours. 

While much of your professional development will take place outside of your normal work hours, learning activities you choose to participate in during your work hours will require you to request release time from your supervisor.

Since the two-hour workshop takes place within the same 24 hour period, then no, this workshop will not count for two months of learning.

If a workshop or training for which you are registered is cancelled, those hours may not be counted towards your monthly totals.

The GE structure document provides an overview of the semester-based GE program with information about the new features.  The GE proposal guide provides information about proposing a course to each of the required categories of GE and provides information about the required GLOs.  The GE addendum form is the blank form that should be completed to address the required questions for GE.  Answers should demonstrate how the GLOs and Title V are fulfilled at the course description level, regardless of differences that may occur across instructors or sections.

CSUSB will be in sync with other semester campuses so that students may participate in the curricular and co-curricular activities offered by campuses.  Some of these activities may include study abroad programs, internships, and National Student Exchange Programs.

Over the academic year, the student services provided will not be interrupted. On the contrary, offices will make adjustments to ensure that students are supported before, during, and after the conversion to semesters.

Semester conversion should not affect your financial aid package. While the semester schedule will decrease the number of financial aid check disbursements, your financial aid is awarded for the academic year regardless of whether the school’s calendar is quarter or semester based. Financial aid recipients will see an adjustment in their award packages to accommodate this difference. The Office of Financial Aid will advise students on the impact semester conversion may have, if any, on their financial aid eligibility.

The cost per term will be higher because there are only 2 terms (semesters) vs. 3 terms (quarters); however, the cost for the annual academic year will not be affected by the semester conversion.

No. Regardless of whether it is a quarter or semester academic schedule the rent/meals are based on a similar amount of days in the academic year. Student Housing and Residence Life will continue to contract with students from the start of school and the contract will run through the last day of finals. Housing and Residential Education is committed to offering continuous housing to ensure our students will retain the right to stay on campus during the break period with full access to their residential hall. Contact Housing and Residential Education.

No. For undergraduate students, under the semester system the same fee structure will apply. See CSU Fee Schedules. The annual cost of your education will not be impacted by the quarter to semester transition. However, the cost per term will be higher on semesters because there are only 2 semesters, which means annual fee is divided in half (as opposed to the quarter system, where the annual fee is divided into thirds because there are three quarters).

For graduate students, the amount of tutition will vary depending on your program.

See your academic advisor to determine if the conversion will affect your program of study.

Yes. Please see our Student Pledge, which pledges that a student's earned credits will not be lost in the conversion.

In order to plan a course of study that leads to successful completion of your degree, without loss of credit, you should meet with your Graduate Coordinator or Graduate Advisor as soon as possible.  If you are nearing completion of your degree, make every effort to graduate prior to the conversion in Fall 2020.  If you are not nearing completion, work with your Graduate Coordinator or Advisor to develop a plan of study to make the transition. If there are quarter courses that will not have a semester equivalent, either plan to take those courses prior to Fall 2020 or work with your coordinator/advisor to determine an acceptable semester course substitution.

You can find out who your academic advisor is by going to this link: https://www.csusb.edu/advising/services/who-my-advisor

myCAP is an academic planning tool, which allows students to plan courses to take throughout their academic career.

Associated Students Incorporated officers serve as members of the Q2S steering and subcommittees and they participate fully in the process.  We also included both graduate and undergraduate students who are not members of ASI in focus groups and information sessions to ensure that the student voice and perspective is included and helps to shape decisions regarding the conversion.

The last summer on quarters (Summer 2020) will be a 5-week session, from June 22, 2020 through July 23, 2020, with finals on July 27-28, 2020.

Two commencements will still be offered. Fall commencement ceremonies will be held in December while Spring commencement ceremonies will be held in May.

If an issue or conflict arises stay calm and communicate with the trip leaders. The trip leaders will do their best to accommodate you and the other individual. The goal is to respect one another,
as well as use compassion and kindness in dealing with resolving conflict.

Depending on the location there will be different types of wildlife - leaders are trained during their briefing to know what to do in case we come across wildlife.

There is generally a variety of meals; we always try to include deliciousness and nutritional values for meals. If you have any suggestions or allergies please inform Adventure staff, we also accommodate
Vegans, milk-intolerant and vegetarian individuals. 

Leaders are trained for a whole quarter and complete extensive workshops where they will become competent enough to lead these trips. They also get these certifications: Wilderness First Aid, CPR,
Smith’s Driving and Food Handlers. 

Every quarter we offer an Adventure Leadership Program (ALP). Check out the Leadership Program link to the left more current information.
 

Trips are led by CSUSB students, faculty and staff. All leaders have go through the Adventure Leadership Program and are trained is first aid, CPR, emergency response, and driving safety.

Transportation, most meals, equipment, and amazing memories.  The trip participants are responsible for their own transportation to and from the meeting location on the first and last day of the
trip, which is generally the SRWC on the San Bernardino campus.  

Yes we do. Check out the Adventure Rental webpage for a complete list of gear available as well as rates and rental policies.

We have a strict no drugs, tobacco, smoking or alcohol policy for the duration of all our trips. We also do not allow pets, fireworks, or firearms.

With camping trips we usually stay in designated campsites with running water and toilets. With backpacking trips we may spend days at a time without a toilet and will learn to use the woods as
our restroom. See specific trip for more on specific accommodations. 

Don’t count on it. We encourage you try to spend some time away from your phone and laptop.

It depends on the location. We recommend leaving your phone on airplane mode and use it for taking pictures.

Yes. Non-CSUSB students can be sponsored by a SRWC member or someone eligible to be a SRWC member.

Depends on the trip that you sign up for. Camping and backpacking trips sleep in tents at a campground. Urban trips may stay at hostels. Some camping trips we do stay at cabins, but that depends
on the trip. 

No, the only people that drive are the leaders of the trip.
 

Most trips range from 5-12 people including leaders. Occasional trips have up to 24 people. Group size for custom trips range.

Yes we offer custom trips. If you’re interested please email adventure@csusb.edu to schedule a meeting to discuss your group’s needs.

All trips meet at the Student Recreation and Wellness Center on the San Bernardino campus unless otherwise noted.

You do not. All our trips include instruction, however some trips require various levels of fitness.

Trips are open to CSUSB students, faculty, staff, Alumni Association members and affiliates (those who live with a member). These people are also able to sponsor up to 2 adults to join them on the
trip at the community rate. Community members are only eligible to go on trips if sponsored by a trip participant.

Trips include camping, backpacking, hiking, cultural, service, rafting, surfing, kayaking and snowboarding to name a few. Adventure is also proud to sponsor TRACKS, the Alternative Break Program.
TRACKS stands for travel, recreation, adventure, culture, knowledge, and service.

Class sizes are dependent on a wide range of factors including pedagogy (teaching practices), department full-time equivalency targets, availability of instructors, and numbers of students needing to take the course.  The same factors will be at play with the semester system and will inform class size and number of course sections.

Currently, undergraduate students need to complete 180-quarter units to graduate. That works out to 45 units per year for four years, or 15 units per quarter.  Most quarter courses are 4-units, so a student will typically take four (4) courses per term to graduate in four years.

Under the semester model, students will need to complete 120-semester units to graduate. That works out to 30 units per year for four years, or 15 units per semester.  Most semester courses are 3-units, so a student will typically take five (5) courses per term to graduate in four years.

The length of a semester is 15 instructional weeks, as compared to 10 instructional weeks in the quarter model.  Class sessions will be shorter but the time over the entire term will be longer, 45 hours for a 3-unit semester class whereas it is 40 hours for a 4-unit quarter class.

Yes, although we will continue to admit the majority of our undergraduate students during the fall admission cycle, while graduate programs, self-support programs, and special populations may include a spring and/or summer admission cycle.

Both the quarter and semester models require at least 147 instructional days during the academic year. The semester system divides the year into two terms of 15 instructional weeks, typically beginning in August and ending in May. An optional summer term is also available. The quarter system divides the academic year into three terms per year of 10 weeks each, typically beginning in September and ending in June, plus an optional summer term.

Fall 2020 - August 24, 2020 (Saturday classes begin August 22, 2020.)

Pre-designed interval class that requires no equipment and is based on the principles of MAX Interval Training. Be prepared to work hard for short, time-based intervals followed by recovery.

Graduate Programs

Please visit the Office of Graduate Studies website for a list of graduate coordinators.

An 'Overaward' exists when a financial aid recipient has received more money from the financial aid programs (and other programs - like DOR assistance for non-disability related expenses) than they should, they have exceeded the absolute ceiling (or cap) set in the federal regulations (either the Cost of Attendance' or student's 'Need'). If the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships has an Overaward, they have a serious problem. The Federal government requires the institution to repay the 'over-awarded amount' out of institutional funds or to collect it back from the student.

The DOR regulations and the Title IV regulations have similar sounding phrases in them. However, the Title IV regulations at 34 CFR 673.05 (e) require ...'The institution shall take into account those resources it -- I) Can reasonably anticipate at the time it awards. , or (iii) Otherwise knows about.' Further specific guidance has been provided to the Financial Aid community in the Federal Student Aid Handbook (03-04, page 1-124, paragraph 2), which goes on to direct the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships, that it' ...must coordinate funds available from the vocational rehabilitation agency and from institutional, state, and federal student financial assistance programs to prevent an over-award. The amount of assistance from the vocational rehabilitation agency must be documented in the student's file.' What the Title IV regulations mean specifically is that the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships should ignore DOR funds paid to or on behalf of students for expenses related to their disability. So, if the DOR purchases a special device (like a wheel chair or a hearing aid) or pays another disability related expense, the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships does not consider that kind of assistance as a 'resource,' nor does it consider the cost of that device in the student's 'Cost of Attendance allowance'. However, when the DOR is paying for something that all students (including non-disabled students) must pay, (for example, tuition fees, books, ordinary transportation expenses) then the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships is mandated by the Federal regulations that govern the Title IV Financial Aid programs to 'resource coordinate'. This means that it must look at other sources of funds available to students to assure that students do not receive more than the total 'Cost of Attendance', or an 'Over-award' and document that in the student's file.

We prefer the DOR Counselor fax it to us. We don't know the DOR Counselor's signature but we will recognize the Fax identification line on the fax and will know that a DOR staff member and not the student completed the 'DOR' info exchange form.

The DOR counselor cannot retrieve a copy of the student's grant award letter, unless the student authorizes it. The student's been instructed to provide the (DOR) counselor with the item necessary to evaluate their DOR file. In order for the student to retrieve a copy of his/her grant award letter, they must go to http://finaid.csusb.edu and click on 'Check Status' under 'My Financial Aid'. Once they have downloaded the grant award letter, they then proceed to 'Download' forms under 'Bulletin' to download the 'DOR Info Exchange' form. Both grant award letter and DOR Info exchange form is to be provided to the DOR counselor for evaluation.

The Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships has completed the process of awarding grants. The student will not be considered for any further financial aid other than what they have been awarded.

The Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships prefers the DOR Counselor completes the form on an annual basis. However, we understand that the DOR can't always predict a student's situation. Therefore, if the DOR Counselor make the best guess possible, and needs to revise or cancel the estimated DOR amount at a later date they can forward a new form to us and we will revise the award appropriately.

The form is completed by the DOR Counselor to assist in the processing and determining the student's true eligibility for grant, work and loan programs.

The DOR Counselor retrieves obtains the form from the student or can also download the form from the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships website. The DOR Counselor completes the form and faxes it to the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships at 909-537-7024.

A selection committee comprised of faculty and administrators will review applications and choose applicants for interviews. Applications are typically due in early April, and decisions made at the end of April. Four students are selected as Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellows.

Applicants are selected based on the following criteria:

  • Academic promise;
  • Potential for a faculty career in academia in core Mellon fields of study, and particularly in the arts, humanities and social sciences;
  • Contribution to diversity in their designated fields of study;
  • Demonstrated commitment to understanding the barriers faced by underrepresented minorities, breaking down stereotypes, and increasing understanding across racial and ethnic groups;
  • Commitment to participating fully and enthusiastically in all aspects of the MMUF program, including attendance at conferences and meetings; and
  • as a U.S. citizen, permanent resident, undocumented or DACAmented status.

All students who are at least Sophomores and who have at least 2 more years left in their academic career at CSUSB are welcome to apply for MMUF, though applications are particularly encouraged from African-Americans, Latinos and Latinas, Native Americans, and other under­represented minorities (URM).

The time commitment varies as your research projects progress. Typically, fellows should anticipate spending approximately 10 hours/week attending workshops and activities and working on their independent projects. Fellows will meet weekly at Mellon workshops. Also, fellows are expected to meet regularly with their Mellon faculty mentor. Throughout the academic year, fellows will work on making active progress on their independent research and preparation for graduate school. Summer months should be dedicated to research or other professional development opportunities related to these academic goals, such as the First Summer Fellowship Program (FSFP) in June, and the CSUSB Extended Summer Opportunity in August.

Students must be sophomores/juniors and must have at least 2 years left, though the Mellon funding will only cover 2 years, even if they stay on longer. 

Sophomores or juniors, who:

  1. Have a passion for research, teaching, mentorship, and genuinely open to a career in higher education
  2. U.S. student (citizen, permanent resident, DACAmented ,or undocumented)
  3. Genuinely considering graduate study in a Mellon designated field,
  4. Committed to the goals of MMUF.
  5. A minimum GPA of 3.5

Yes! The MMUF program is seeking students who enjoy research and want to get the most out of their education.

A fellowship is an agreement to conduct research and participate in a program. In exchange, fellows receive financial support, mentorship, and other benefits.

This refers to students who have not been able to realize their fullest potential because of their educational background. Students from low income backgrounds go to schools that may not be as well-equipped as those in more affluent communities, therefore, not affording them the same educational opportunities.

No, EOP is an admissions program and once admitted you will remain in EOP status throughout your undergraduate education. Students previously admitted through regular admissions at CSUSB cannot be admitted to EOP.

If you were previously an EOP student at another CSU campus, you will need to contact our office to complete a CSU EOP Transfer Verification form.

EOP and EOPS share the same goals and objectives in assisting low income, first generation college students.

However, EOP is an admissions program that provides admissions assistance and academic support services.

You must apply EOP and be admitted before enrolling in your first quarter at the university and adhere to EOP admissions deadlines.

No, it is not too late to apply to EOP.

You need to log back into your Cal State Apply account and click on the Apply Online tab. Then click on the Supporting Information Tile and then on the Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) link. Follow the online prompts for the rest of the application. Remember to hit “SUBMIT” upon completion.

Please note, the CSUSB EOP Application deadline is November 30.

EOP admits a limited number of applicants each year that do not meet all of the requirements for admission.

Applicants that are considered for an 'exception admission' must demonstrate the motivation and potential to succeed in obtaining a baccalaureate degree.

No. Not all EOP students receive the EOP grant.

The EOP Grant is part of the total financial aid award and is determined by the Financial Aid Office.  The EOP Grant is awarded based on the availability of funds, as well as the student's financial need and class level.

It is highly recommended that students submit their FAFSA or their CA Dream Act application early because awards are based on a first-come, first-served basis.

An EOP student must be responsible for the following:

  • Maintain good academic standing
  • Complete a minimum of 12-16 units per quarter with a 2.0 GPA
  • Meet quarterly with their counselor
  • Utilize academic and student support services
  • Maintain current email, a mailing address and phone number with the EOP office

No. EOPS students have an advantage over other applicants because they are familiar with an academic support program, but that does not guarantee admission.

EOPS students are asked to declare their affiliation with EOPS on the Cal State Apply application, but must complete the same application process as everyone else.

No. The EOP determination is set at the time of admission only.

Although lunch is not provided, all attendees are encouraged to bring their lunch to each Literature Circle meeting.

We will utilize resources from the university's eLearning system, Skillsoft, for most discussion sessions. Resources can be downloaded from Skillsoft as an eBook or audio book at no cost to the CSUSB employee.

Being on the semester calendar, which will begin in August and end in May, will put us in alignment with the other California State University campuses, our California Community Colleges, and more than 90% of colleges and universities nationwide.  This will make it easier for transfer students to apply course credits toward degree completion.  It will also make it easier for all students to compete on the summer job market because CSUSB students will now be available at the same time as those attending other universities.  The semester calendar will also align better with the K-12 school-year calendar, supporting those of you who are also caregivers or parents of younger children.

In addition to aligning our calendar with other schools, semesters will also create more opportunities to participate in internships, field experiences, and community engagement projects on and off the campus and more time to absorb and learn course material.

Another benefit will be that students will only need to register for classes, pay fees, and complete other administrative tasks twice a year rather than three times a year.

Applications that meet the minimum GPA requirements are sent to the program for an admission decision. Please keep in mind that each program may have additional admission requirements.

You will receive an email from the university containing your student email and ID number.

If you have further questions or concerns please contact us.

COMMUNICATION WITH OFFICIALS - Only the team captain/coach is allowed to have communication with the game officials. Should a certain player(s) have questions/concerns, they should be directed to the officials via the captain/coach ONLY.

Sec. 1 The notification of the intent to protest must be made immediately before the ball is put into play, or the play will no longer be protested.

  1. The captain of the protesting team should immediately notify the official(s) that the game is being continued under protest. Officials will notify the opposing team captain or manager.
  2. All interested parties shall take notice of the conditions surrounding the making of the decision that will aid in the correct determination of the issue.

Protest shall be handed in writing to the Recreation Office the next working day. Failure to do so will also negate the protest.

Every participant (faculty, staff and students) must provide evidence that they are members or have paid for a day pass.  All participants will be required to go to the gym and receive a wristband after passing through the turnstiles before their games. In an effort to simplify and make participation more accessible to all, the Intramural department of Recreational Sports requests that all team captains completes their rosters for each sport they are participating in (Names and Student ID number for each player) before the first week of contests. All players must also fill out a waiver form before they are allowed to play.

  1. ROSTER SIZE - Rosters will be allowed an unlimited amount of players.
  2. SIGNED ROSTERS – Captains are responsible for making sure that each player signs their roster, registers his/her social security number and supplies a valid Coyote One card at game time. The captains also understand and realize that the Department of Campus Recreation DOES NOT HAVE OR PROVIDE MEDICAL INSURANCE in the event a player is injured during the course of the season. In addition, the team captain is responsible to assure that each player reads and fully understands the entire waiver form and that each participant signs and completes the waiver form. Players not filling out their roster sheet or waiver form will be ineligible for that week's game.
  3. ADDITIONAL PLAYERS - Teams may add or delete players on their rosters until the end of the third week of the season. These changes must be made the day prior to your game.
  4. MINIMUM PLAYERS (Men division) - 6 rostered players shall constitute a full team. Teams may start with 2 players and must maintain a minimum 2 rostered players in the game at all times, otherwise a forfeit will occur.
  5. MINIMUM PLAYERS (Coed division only) - 6 rostered players shall constitute a full team. Teams may start with 2 players and must maintain a minimum 2 rostered players in the game at all times, otherwise a forfeit will occur. The following are the only combinations allowed:
Women Men
4 1 or 2
3 1, 2 or 3
2 1, 2 or 3
1 1

 

All teams that fail to show up for their games automatically forfeit the game.  Teams that do not inform the Intramural department at least one full day before their game that they are unable to attend will be assessed a forfeit fee.  Teams will not be allowed to play in the league until that fee has been paid.  Two forfeits from a team regardless if they are consecutive or not will result in that team being removed from the league.

  1. Pants, shorts, sweats, etc. may be worn with pockets and belt loops as long as safety is not put at risk. In general, any kind of attire is acceptable to participate in as long as the safety of the individual and other participants is not put in question.
  2. Jewelry is not allowed - PERIOD! Placing tape over any type of jewelry on any part of the body (ear, nose, eyebrow, etc.) is not allowed, as the jewelry is still present, and presents a safety concern to both the player wearing the jewelry as well as the opponent.
  3. Shoes - All players must wear an enclosed "tennis-type" shoe. Shoe that mar floors or leave marks may not be worn.
  4. The Department of Recreational Sports will provide the game balls for all scheduled games.

BOTH MEN'S AND COED DIVISIONS

  1. Serves cannot be blocked.
  2. "Dinking" the ball is allowed.
  3. A player may cross under the net as long as no physical or visual interference occurs.
  4. SERVING: a coin flip decides who serves first. In the event of a 1-1 game tie, a coin flip will decide who serves first in the rally game.

COED DIVISION ONLY

  1. The net height shall be 7' 4".
  2. Men can hit the ball at or behind the 10' line.
  3. Any player can block any non-service ball.

The Department of Recreational Sports reserves the right to ban any player, coach, spectator, or participant from further participation for an indefinite time period due to any misconduct and/or unsportsmanlike conduct.

Only CURRENT students, staff, faculty, and alumni association members are eligible to participate. A student must have paid his/her fees, which include a portion that is directed toward the Department of Recreational Sports.

A player may play for only one team per league/per day. A player who has played on more than one team without explicit authorization will have all games they played in count as losses, including games played on for their "original team".

If any player is found ineligible for any reason all of the games that he/she has participated in will count as losses.

Teams who have players on their roster who have either been a member of a collegiate team or a professional team must get approval of Recreational Sports before the season begins.

Any team with two or more current or former collegiate and/or professional players, of the sport being played, on their rosters must advise the Department of Recreational Sports in advance and before the program begins. If this is not done, all games played with or without the current/former collegiate and or professional players will be considered losses. The intent of this rule is to make all other participants aware of the circumstances, and to make modifications (if necessary) for championship awards.

Each member of the championship team will receive a Department of Recreational Sports Intramural Championship t-shirt at the conclusion of the program

Each team playing is requested to provide a person to assist the head official in calling lines. If neither team can provide a Line Judge, the head official will call lines the best as they can from their vantage point. Head official has final call over line judges.

The Referee will keep the official game score.

  1. A game consists of the first team to get 15 points. Teams must win by at least 2 points.
  2. Points may be scored only when you are serving during the first two games.
  3. A match consists of winning 2 out of 3 games.
  4. If the match goes to a 3rd game, rally scoring will be used (any team not faulting scores) to 25 points.

Any questions, problems, or further information on anything pertaining to the Softball program can be obtained by contacting us.

Teams and players are hereby notified that no such rule exists in softball, which states that a base runner "must slide". This has been and continues to be a standard misconception amongst a majority of softball players and fans alike. On page 65, under POINTS OF EMPHASIS IN the SCMAF rule book, it states under the section of COLLISIONS: "It is the intent of this rule book to avoid collisions whenever possible to prevent injury. AT NO TIME DO WE INSIST OR MAKE IT MANDATORY FOR ANYONE TO SLIDE, ONLY TO AVOID INTERFERENCE WITH A FIELDER. RUNNERS SHOULD ATTEMPT TO AVOID CONTACT WHENEVER POSSIBLE. HOWEVER, IT IS POSSIBLE FOR CONTACT TO OCCUR WITHOUT INTERFERENCE. Please refer to the definitions of interference and obstruction."

  1. Postponed or rained-out league games will not be re-played.
  2. POSSIBLE RAINED OUT GAMES: The following procedure will be followed in case there is any doubt concerning the condition of the fields immediately following or on a rainy day:

Both the home team and visiting team captains must call the Assistant Coordinator of Recreational Sports by 12 noon on the day of the game. The playability of the field will have been determined by that time.

The umpire at the field location will make any changes due to the condition of the weather AFTER the Department of Recreational Sports has made a decision.

Sec. 1 The notification of the intent to protest must be made immediately before the ball is put into play, or the play will no longer be protested.

  1. The captain of the protesting team should immediately notify the official(s) that the game is being continued under protest. Officials will notify the opposing team captain or manager.
  2. All interested parties shall take notice of the conditions surrounding the making of the decision that will aid in the correct determination of the issue.

Protest shall be handed in writing to the Recreation Office the next working day. Failure to do so will also negate the protest.

All participants must register their social security number on their roster and have their Coyote One card present at game time at every game. Proper identification consists of a valid Coyote One card and valid social security number. Faculty and staff should follow the same procedure, as do the students. Alumni Association members need a current membership card and a photo ID. The Department of Campus Recreation requires that all teams complete registration of their team before the beginning of the season.

In cases where a participant has an extenuating circumstance (recently transferred, lost ID, etc.), they may still participate. However, the participant must complete the process before their first game. If this is not done, the participant will not be allowed to play until he/she follows the proper procedure.

  1. ROSTER SIZE – Rosters can have an unlimited amount of players. A Coed roster must have at least 4 women and 4 men.
  2. SIGNED ROSTERS – Captains are responsible for making sure that each player signs their roster, registers his/her social security number and supplies a valid Coyote One card at game time. The captains also understand and realize that the Department of Campus Recreation DOES NOT HAVE OR PROVIDE MEDICAL INSURANCE in the event a player is injured during the course of the season. In addition, the team captain is responsible to assure that each player reads and fully understands and completes the waiver form. Any player not filling out the waiver or roster will be ineligible for that game.

  4. MINIMUM PLAYERS - 10 rostered players shall constitute a full team. Teams may start with 7 players, (men’s only) or 8, (co-ed) and must maintain the minimum rostered players in the game at all times, otherwise a forfeit will occur.

Game time is forfeit time. The definition of a forfeit is: THE PENALTY IMPOSED ON A TEAM FOR NOT BEING ABLE TO FIELD AT LEAST 7(men’s) 0r 8(co-ed) ROSTERED PLAYERS ON THE FIELD AT GAME TIME.

Teams forfeiting a game based on this definition will receive a loss for the forfeited game. After 2 forfeits, the team will be dropped from the program.

  1. Pants, shorts, sweats, etc. may be worn with pockets and belt loops as long as safety is not put at risk. In general, any kind of attire is acceptable to participate in as long as the safety of the individual and other participants is not put in question.
  2. Jewelry is not allowed - PERIOD! Placing tape over any type of jewelry on any part of the body (ear, nose, eyebrow, etc.) is not allowed, as the jewelry is still present, and presents a safety concern to both the player wearing the jewelry as well as the opponent.

BOTH MEN’S AND COED DIVISIONS

  1. Umpires will call ALL rule infractions (as done in National Federation Softball and Baseball). This includes not legally touching a base, not tagging up, etc. There is no need for the defensive team to make appeal plays, as the umpire will automatically apply the correct penalties as soon as all play has ceased and time is out.

  4. Automatic base on balls can be given by a defensive team requesting it at any time.
  5. One courtesy runner is allowed per inning. Courtesy runners shall be the last recorded out made by the player of the same sex. If no player of the same sex has recorded an out, the last player of the same sex listed last in the batting order shall be the courtesy runner.
  6. Teams have the option of batting any number of legally rostered players, from 8 - 16 (with unlimited defensive substitutions), with any remaining rostered players being withheld as substitutes.

COMMUNICATION WITH OFFICIALS - Only the team captain/coach is allowed to have communication with the game officials. Should a certain player(s) have questions/concerns, they should be directed to the officials via the captain/coach ONLY.

NOTE: The starting batting order must be followed, but defensive changes may be made at any time. Players arriving after the 1st pitch of the game may be added to the end of the batting order immediately upon arrival, or must be used as a regular substitute. The scorekeeper need not be notified of any defensive changes, but must be told of any substitution changes. Any batter failing to bat for any reason will be automatically out if no legal substitute is available the first time a batter fails to bat. Said player shall not participate any further in the game. This space shall be skipped for the remainder of the game with no further penalty.

BOTH DIVISIONS: All teams will use the self-pitch rule. All batters will have a maximum of 3 pitches. If by the third pitch the batter DOES NOT get a hit he/she is out. Sides will change when there are 3 outs.

The exception for this would be for the students participating in the 10 week International Student Exchange. Teams who have players on their roster who have either been a member of a collegiate team or a professional l team must get approval of Campus Recreation before the season begins.

Any team with two or more current or former collegiate and or professional players on their rosters must advise the Department of Campus Recreation in advance and BEFORE the program begins.

Teams with a winning record any winning record will qualify for playoffs. Teams will be determined at the discretion of the commissioner. All decisions are final.

**Again, any rules not specifically addressed will be interpreted along the lines of NCAA outdoor rules and common    

  1. There is no offside in outdoor soccer.
  2. There is no slide-tackling allowed. When such occurs it results in an indirect free kick at the spot of the violation, a yellow card, and a direct substitution. The only exception to slide- tackling is to save a ball from going out of boundaries without contact of another player.
  3. Defensive players must stand at least 7 yards from the ball during any free kick.
  4. Penalty kicks will be taken from above the goal box (about 36 ft away). All players other than the kicker and the goal keeper must be behind the halfway line when the penalty kick is taken.
  5. If the goalie handles the ball in any way, goal kicks and free kicks or throws by the goalie must touch the floor or be touched by a player before reaching halfway line. If a ball travels over halfway line in the air on a goal kick or goalie throw, the ball will be put in play by the non-offending team by an indirect free kick at halfway line.
  6. Rough play (fouls) will be characterized as flagrant and non-flagrant. A flagrant foul will be penalized by direct substitution. Violent, intentional violations such as pushing, tripping, etc. will bring about this penalty. After a penalty, play resumes with an indirect free kick at the spot of the foul. Continual rough play by and individual will result in a game ejection and possible suspension from the league. Non-flagrant fouls will bring about a indirect free kick at the point of the violation only. Any problems or questions which arise during a game will be dealt with by the official. One official will be present for all games and their decisions are final.
  1. When the ball is kicked out of boundary, there will be a throw-in by the opposite team where the ball was kicked out. There will be a corner kick when a defensive player kicks it out of boundary at the goal line (end line).
  2. On the kickoff to start the game or after a goal, the defending team must be behind the halfway line.
  3. If a game results in a tie, there will be a five minute overtime. Afterwards,  if the score remains in a tie there will be a penalty kick shootout.

Intramurals will provide two soccer balls, pennies (to be worn by one of the teams), and goals. Cleats and shin guards are preferred for outdoor soccer.

Games consist of two, 20-minute halves. There will be a five-minute halftime. Games will start on the hour. There will be time for warming up prior to the first game and for 5-10 minutes of warm-up prior to each successive game*(with the exceptions of incidents happening). Games use running time throughout. The clock will be stopped only for injuries or for other extraordinary reasons as the official deems necessary. Goals do not stop the clock. There is no waiting period the game clock starts on the hour.

  1. There will only be a maximum of 7 players in play during a match (including the goal keeper).
  2. Substitutions have to be notified to the referee and can only occur on a dead ball, including the goal keeper.

Outdoor soccer games are played on the soccer fields located east to the Recreational Center.

  1. The dimension of the 7 versus 7 soccer field is, 240 ft in length and 140 ft in width.
  2. There will be two 18 ft goal boxes and a halfway line at 120 ft.

Teams with a winning record any winning record will qualify for playoffs. Teams will be determined at the discretion of the commissioner. All decisions are final.

**Again, any rules not specifically addressed will be interpreted along the lines of NCAA outdoor rules and common sense.

Generally, the rules of NCAA outdoor soccer will be used to govern indoor soccer. Still, there will be a number of modifications:

  1. There is no offsides in indoor soccer.
  2. There is no slide-tackling allowed. To do so results in an indirect free kick at the spot of the violation, a yellow card and a two minute penalty.
  3. Defensive players must stand at least 4 yards from the ball during any free kick.
  4. On the kickoff to start the game or after a goal, the defending team must be behind the half court line for basketball.
  5. Penalty kicks will be taken from the top of the goalie's box (about 8 yards away). All players other than the kicker and the goalie must be behind the mid-court line when the penalty kick is taken.
  6. If the goalie handles the ball in any way, a goal kicks and free kicks or throws by the goalie must touch the floor or be touched by a player before reaching mid-court. If a ball travels over mid-court in the air on a goal kick or goalie throw, the ball will be put in play by the non-offending team by an indirect free kick at mid-court.
  7. Rough play (fouls) will be characterized as flagrant and non-flagrant. A flagrant foul will be penalized by a two-minute penalty, as in ice hockey. Violent intentional violations such as pushing, tripping, etc. will bring about this penalty. After a penalty, play resumes with a direct free kick at the spot of the foul.

SoftChalk allows you to turn your course content into web-based lessons by combining audio, video, quizzes, and other interactive elements.

Blackboard Collaborate (formerly known as Elluminate) is a web conferencing system that allows a host (or instructor) to meet, present, and/or collaborate with its audience (or students) synchronously. Blackboard Collaborate also gives the host the ability to record a session and share the session at a later time asynchronously.

Zoom gives you the power to engage users (or students) in a web conference with a variety of tools such as instant polling, whiteboard, desktop sharing, audio and video conferencing, and chatting. In one platform, you can host online sessions for small or large groups. You also have the ability to record a session and share the session at a later time asynchronously. From anywhere, faculty can meet with students using their laptop, desktop, tablet, or smartphone. Zoom is compatible with iOS, Mac, Android, and PCs.

Blackboard provides an online space to organize learning materials, student grades, and communicate. The LMS can be used to supplement a traditional class, to support a blended course, or it can be used as the main delivery structure for a fully online course.

ALL players must remain in their designated box at all times (from the 20-yd line to the 20-yd line). If a team is caught outside of this area, a 5yard penalty may be assessed. Participants may only leave their bench / designated boxed area in the following instances:

  • To enter a game
  • At the conclusion of the game

Every participant (faculty, staff and students) must provide evidence that they are members or have paid for a day pass.  All participants will be required to go to the gym and receive a wristband after passing through the turnstiles before their games. In an effort to simplify and make participation more accessible to all, the Intramural department of Recreational Sports requests that all team captains completes their rosters for each sport they are participating in (Names and Student ID number for each player) before the first week of contests. All players must also fill out a waiver form before they are allowed to play.

In the case of inclement weather jeopardizing game day both the home team and visiting team captains call the Recreation Center office by 12 noon on game day. The condition of the field will have been determined by that time.

Sec. 1 The notification of the intent to protest must be made immediately before the ball is put into play, (the next snap from Scrimmage) or the play will no longer be protested.

  1. The captain of the protesting team should immediately notify the official(s) that the game is being continued under protest. Officials will notify the opposing team captain or manager.
  2. All interested parties shall take notice of the conditions surrounding the making of the decision that will aid in the correct determination of the issue.

Protest shall be handed in writing to the Recreation Office the next working day. Failure to do so will also negate the protest.

Captains are responsible for making sure that each player signing the WAIVER FORMS understands and realizes that the Department of Recreational Sports DOES NOT PROVIDE insurance. In the event, a player is injured during the course of the season; he/she should have his/her own insurance.

Players may only play for one team during the season. Once a player has played on a team, they must play for that team the entire season. Rosters are required to be submitted into the Department of Recreational Sports by the Captains meeting. Teams may add players to their rosters up until the 3rd week of the season. ALL players must remain in their designated box at all times (from the 20-yd line to the 20-yd line).

Alcohol and tobacco products are prohibited for consumption or any other use by any participant on a flag football team. All players and participants are asked not to use any glass containers and to assist in keeping the fields and surrounding area clean by cleaning up after themselves. Any player(s) under the influence will be ejected.

  • Offensive players must have possession of the ball before they can legally be de-flagged.
  • Instances where a flag belt has been removed prior to the player advancing the ball, the ball carriers progress can be stopped by a two- handed tag between the shoulders and knees.
  • A flag belt, which becomes detached unintentionally, does not cause play to stop.
  • Circumstances where a flag belt is removed illegally, play will continue with the option of the penalty (12 yards) or the result of the play.
  • Tampering with the flag belt in any way including tying, using foreign materials, etc., will result in a 15-yard penalty from the Line of Scrimmage, loss of down, and player ejection.

A player scoring a touchdown must immediately approach the official so the official can verify the flag belt is "legal". The official will pull the player's flag with one pull. If the flag cannot be removed and the official determines the flag belt has been illegally secured, the touchdown will be negated. The player will be ejected; a 15-yard penalty will be assessed from the previous line of scrimmage and a loss of down.

Offensive lineman must SCREEN defenders. Screening is done by placing your hands and arms either at your side or behind your back. Lineman can never pass the line of scrimmage to screen. All linemen screening must occur behind the line of scrimmage. NO DOWN FIELD SCREENING is permitted. Ball carriers may not run over or through defensive players. The defensive lineman must run around offensive lineman, NOT through them.

If a team is behind by 30 points at any portion of the game, the game will be terminated.

Playoffs will be determined by various factors, including, but not limited to: number of rainouts, availability of teams to compete, and field availability. Teams with winning records will be eligible to play in the playoffs.

  • 5-yd: too many players on the field, offsides, delay of game, player with possession that dives, wearing jewelry
  • 10-yd: holding (spot of foul), down field blocking, flag guarding, tackling, offensive pass interference, hurdling
  • 15-yd: unnecessary roughness (possible ejection), unsportsmanlike conduct, defensive pass interference, and flag tampering
  • Loss of down: intentional grounding, illegal forward pass, and offensive pass interference
  • Automatic first down: defensive pass interference, roughing the passer
  • Pants, shorts and sweat pants without pockets may be worn without belts and belt loops.
  • All players must wear a shirt. Shirts must be tucked in so flag belts are visible at all times.
  • Jewelry is not allowed - PERIOD! Placing tape over any type of jewelry on any part of the body is not allowed, as the jewelry is still present, and presents a safety concern to both the player wearing the jewelry as well as the opponent. The game will not begin until all jewelry is removed.  (If not removed before game time it will result in a 5 yard penalty)
  • All players must wear a closed toe athletic shoe.
  • Cleats may be worn, cleats must be made of non-metal material and not exceed 1/2 inch in length.
  • Hats are NOT permitted due to safety reasons.

Two 1-minute time outs per team per half and are not cumulative. The clock will stop for:

  • Team time outs.
  • Official's time out (time starts on the whistle of the official).
  • Injuries necessitating time to remove a player from the field.
  • During the last two minutes of the second half.
  • A ball is dead when: removal of a flag, out of bounds, a safety, a touchdown and ALL FUMBLES.
  • A live ball that hits the ground on any play is a DEAD BALL.
  • Any fumble occurring down field or past the line of scrimmage is dead where the player loses possession.
  • Any fumble behind the line of scrimmage or on the snap the ball is dead where it lands and may not be advanced. If the ball lands in the end zone, it is a safety.
  • When a pass, that is intercepted and is fumbled the ball remains with the intercepting team and is spotted where the player lost possession.
  • Interceptions may be returned if caught in the end zone. Also a defending team may intercept and return a 1 & 2 point conversion. The score would be the exact point value of the conversion try.
  • Touchdown = 6 points
  • Point after = 1 point (from the 5 yard line run or pass)
  • Point after = 2 points (from the 10 yard line run or pass)
  • Safety = 2 points

The team that chooses to punt must announce their choice and the defensive team must have five players on the line of scrimmage. These five players may not cross the line of scrimmage. If the ball hits the ground during game time, it is dead. The punt may be returned so long as the receiver does not muff the ball or, the ball hits the ground first. In both cases the ball will be dead at the spot. * (Note that a team may throw the ball instead of kicking it during the punt)

All teams that fail to show up for their games automatically forfeit the game.  Teams that do not inform the Intramural department at least one full day before their game that they are unable to attend will be assessed a forfeit fee.  Teams will not be allowed to play in the league until that fee has been paid.  Two forfeits from a team regardless if they are consecutive or not will result in that team being removed from the league.

  • The winner of the coin toss will have the choice of possession or direction.
  • Punts (thrown or kicked) that go out of the end zone will be placed on the 20-yard line.
  • Punts that are fumbled are dead balls.
  • The center may snap the ball through his/her legs or stand beside the ball to snap it.
  • There must be a minimum of three players on the offensive line during each play before the snap.
  • All players are eligible to receive a pass.
  • There will be a 30 second play clock once the official spots the ball (places it on the ground).
  • A player with possession of the ball may NOT leave his/her feet for any reason to advance the ball (diving or hurdling).
  • The ball may be lateraled at anytime.
  • If an official blows his/her whistle inadvertently the play is DEAD and the down will be replayed or the team may take the result of the play.

Any games that are tied at the end of regulation will have an "overtime" that consists of:

  • Each team has FOUR offensive plays from the 20-yd line to score one touchdown and a 1 or 2 point conversion.
  • An interception cannot be returned for a touchdown; possession goes to the intercepting team.
  • If no one scores within the four plays of overtime, the game will remain a tie.
  • Playoffs only, if no one scores after overtime, then each team will continue the overtime format from the 10-yd line until a winner is declared.

Games consist of two 20-minute halves with a 3-minute half time. The clock runs continuously until the final two minutes of the second half.

Only CURRENT students, staff, faculty, and alumni association members are eligible to participate. A student must have paid his/her fees, which include a portion that is directed toward the Department of Recreational Sports.

A player may play for only one team per league/per day. A player who has played on more than one team without explicit authorization will have all games they played in count as losses, including games played on for their "original team".

If any player is found ineligible for any reason all of the games that he/she has participated in will count as losses.

Teams who have players on their roster who have either been a member of a collegiate team or a professional team must get approval of Recreational Sports before the season begins.

Any team with two or more current or former collegiate and/or professional players, of the sport being played, on their rosters must advise the Department of Recreational Sports in advance and before the program begins. If this is not done, all games played with or without the current/former collegiate and or professional players will be considered losses. The intent of this rule is to make all other participants aware of the circumstances, and to make modifications (if necessary) for championship awards.

Each team must consist of seven players. If a team does not have seven players, they may start with six.

All play will be based on the NIRSA Flag Football Rules, with certain exceptions, as noted herein.

The official is given sole discretion in matters of delays. The two types of delays are:

  1. Holding the dodgeball for any amount of time greater than what is needed to complete a play.
  2. Remaining out of bounds for more time or taking more time than is necessary to retrieve a ball that has gone out of bounds. The official may warn or call a player “ Out “ based, solely, on their discretion for violation of the delay rules.

During play, all players must remain within the boundary lines. Stepping on the line is considered “Out”. The midline will be treated like any other boundary line. The midline extends infinitely, and players may not cross it even when retrieving a ball that is out of bounds. There will be an entry and exit point on each side of each end of the court. Players must enter and exit through this point in order to retrieve dodgeballs that are out of bounds. A player who is retrieving a ball, outside the boundaries is not a legal target

Any player who is outside the boundary lines cannot play a ball.

The Team Bench area and “ Out Zone” (Where players are sent after being called out) are also considered boundary lines. Any player inside one of these areas, who steps on the line or outside of the area, will be penalized. Penalty: Closest player to the infraction will be called out.

The back wall is considered out. Once a ball hits the wall, that ball is treated as if it has hit the ground.

There will be no time outs during games. Teams may only substitute in between games and in case of injury

The object of the game is to eliminate all opposing players by getting them “OUT”. This may be done by:

  1. Hitting an opposing player with a thrown ball on or below the shoulders. (A player who intentionally gets hit in the head is also considered “OUT”)
  2. Catching a ball Thrown by your opponent before it touches the ground.
  3. If a player is knocked out but has already thrown a ball, that ball is live.
  4. A deflected ball can be caught, in which case the player who was hit is not OUT and the player who threw the ball is.

The Game begins by placing six dodgeballs along the centerline. Players then take a position behind their end line. Following a signal by the official, teams may approach the centerline to retrieve the balls. This signal officially starts the contest. Once a ball is retrieved, it must be possessed by a player who has one foot established on or behind the 3 meter line before that ball can be thrown.’ The first team to legally eliminate all opposing players will be declared the winner.

The official ball used in the tournament and league play will be a 7” rhino-skin foam ball. Participants must wear shoes. No black-soled shoes are allowed.

The games will be played in the Coussoulis Arena or Coyote Den. The court will be at least 50 ft long and at least 30 ft wide.

Matches will be decided using a “ best-of-nine” format in which the first team to win five (5) games will be declared the winner.

A team roster may have a maximum of 12 players on it. A minimum of 6 players is necessary to compete. The game begins with six players on either team and no one may substitute into a game after it has already started. Others will be available as substitutes. Substitutes may enter the game only in the case of injury.

Any questions, problems, or further information on anything pertaining to the Intramural Basketball season can be obtained

Whenever the difference in the score is 30 points, the game will be terminated, regardless of the amount of time played.

Sec. 1 The notification of the intent to protest must be made before the ball is put back into play, or the play will no longer be protestable.

  1. The captain of the protesting team should immediately notify the official(s) that the game is being continued under protest. Officials will notify the opposing team captain or manager.
  2. All interested parties shall take notice of the conditions surrounding the making of the decision that will aid in the correct determination of the issue.

The smoke-free policy is in effect 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Money set aside in your flexible spending account can be used for your out-of-pocket expenses toward smoking cessation paraphernalia including counseling with a doctor's prescription

Ashtrays will be removed from campus because they are a receptacle for a product that will no longer be used on CSUSB property.

CSUSB is committed to protecting the health and safety of university employees, students and visitors on the CSUSB main campus and ancillary campuses and properties. Creating a smoke-free environment allows for a healthy, comfortable and productive living, learning and working environment.

Yes. All events that take place on CSUSB property, including tailgate gatherings and outdoor events, still fall into the smoke-free zones.

There is no “right to smoke” under state or federal law.

There is no association between the adoption of a 100% smoke, vapor, and tobacco-free campus policy and a decrease in student enrollment. In fact, many colleges and universities promote a healthy and tobacco-free campus environment as a way of increasing enrollment.

For comments or questions regarding this policy, members of the campus community and the community at large are encouraged to visit the CSUSB smoke and tobacco free policy website at www.csusb.edu/smoke-free.

Yes! According to the CDC, smoking bans and restrictions lead to a reduction in the amount of daily smoking among students and employees and an increase in the number of individuals who stop smoking. Smoke/tobacco-free campuses and workplaces reduce the risk of developing heart disease and lung cancer due to secondhand smoke exposure.

CSUSB encourages all individuals to be mindful of their personal safety while on or off campus. Medications such as the nicotine patch, gum, lozenge, nasal spray or inhaler are options that can be considered to meet nicotine needs without leaving campus. Consult your healthcare provider to discuss medication options.

No. The policy prohibits smoking and using tobacco products on all CSU properties, but individuals are not required to quit. While quitting is not required, one goal of the systemwide smoke and tobacco free policy is to increase knowledge and utilization of available cessation resources in order to improve the health and well-being of our community. Environmental policy is a key public health intervention to promote behavior change over time by redirecting available resources, shifting cultural and social norms, and increasing public awareness of wellness issues.

Research shows that most tobacco users are interested in quitting but do not know of existing resources to help them to quit. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the majority of tobacco users tried to quit at least once in the past year and nearly 7 out of 10 (68.0%) adult smokers in the US report that they want to quit completely. Every attempt to quit increases a smokers’ likelihood of successfully stopping smoking, and most smokers attempt to quit at least 7 times before they are successful.

Faculty, staff, and students who see individuals smoking on University properties may (but are not required to) respectfully inform these individuals of the University policy prohibiting smoking/tobacco use anywhere on University properties. However, threatening and/or violent interpersonal conduct regarding compliance with the terms of this executive order will not be tolerated and may result in discipline pursuant to system-wide or campus policies.

Compliance is grounded in an informed and educated campus community. The success of this policy depends on the thoughtfulness, civility and cooperation of all members of the campus community, including visitors.

Members of the CSU community are individually responsible to comply with the creation of a systemwide smoke and tobacco free environment.

Educational campaigns, outreach, communication and the promotion of tobacco cessation treatment options will be the primary means to promote compliance. A comprehensive education and outreach campaign, including resources and referrals for cessation will be made available as part of campus implementation programs.

We hope civility and respect for others will guide all of us during the transitioning toward a smoke/tobacco-free campus. We realize this policy may be challenging for some smokers and tobacco users but we hope that smokers and tobacco users will respect the rights of their fellow members of the CSUSB community to breathe smoke-free air. We also hope non-smokers who remind violators of the smoke/tobacco-free policy will do so with courtesy and civility.

The communications plan will include but is not limited to:

•Notification of policy to current and prospective students and employees through communication available on University websites;

•Notification during the admission and enrollment process and/or during new hire orientation for faculty and staff;

•Informational meetings, postings, and electronic notifications

•Campus signage

•Various print and digital media

•Social media platforms

•Communications to outside groups using CSUSB facilities

•Contracts/Agreements

•Media exposure on and off campus

Signage indicating that CSUSB is a smoke/tobacco-free campus will be posted in all high traffic building entrances/exits, parking lots, and at key points across campus.

Effective September 1, 2017, all California State University campuses shall be 100 percent Smoke Free and Tobacco Free. The use of designated smoking areas are prohibited.

The University does not own the sidewalks and streets that border its campus (sidewalks and streets inside campus are University property). We ask that Cal State San Bernardino faculty, staff, alumni, students, and visitors be courteous when going off campus to smoke or use tobacco products by disposing of tobacco products and packaging in appropriate receptacles and being aware of others nearby who may not wish to be exposed to secondhand smoke.

No, a vehicle parked on a CSUSB parking lot/structure or on a street within the borders of the CSUSB campus is still within the boundaries of the smoke-free zone, and must be moved off-campus if you want to smoke within the vehicle.

Neither smoking nor the use of tobacco products are permitted within the boundaries of University properties. Once outside the boundaries of University properties, smoking and use of tobacco products is subject to local jurisdiction.

Exposure to secondhand smoke is known to cause death and disease and is the third leading cause of preventable death in this country, killing more than 40,000 nonsmokers each year. The Surgeon General of the United States has concluded that there is no risk free level of exposure to secondhand tobacco smoke and any exposure to tobacco smoke – even an occasional cigarette or exposure to secondhand smoke – is harmful. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has found secondhand tobacco smoke to be a risk to public health, and has classified secondhand smoke as a group A carcinogen, the most dangerous class of carcinogen. Furthermore, the California Air Resources Board has categorized secondhand smoke as a toxic air contaminant.

Hookah pipes (also known as water pipes, shisha) have a reputation for being the lesser of evils when it comes to smoking options, and from certain perspectives, this is true. Smoking a hookah doesn't have to mean smoking tobacco or taking in nicotine, which are common substances associated with smoking. But hookah smoking does have its own dangers — combusted charcoal — which carries health risks even when non-tobacco shisha is used.

When charcoal is burned to create the hookah effect, it releases chemicals in the process, namely carbon monoxide (CO) and polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAH). In addition to inhaling byproducts of the shisha, waterpipe smokers also inhale fairly large quantities of these combustionrelated toxins — a hidden health risk associated with hookah smoking, even for non-tobacco shisha.

•Smokeless tobacco spit is considered a biohazard and contains at least 24 carcinogenic chemicals.

•Spit tobacco often creates unwanted hazardous waste and byproducts, which then requires disposal by campus maintenance staff members.

•A dip of smokeless tobacco typically contains 3-5 times more nicotine than a cigarette. Research shows that smokers have difficulty switching from cigarettes to smokeless tobacco. Instead, many become dual users of both cigarettes and smokeless products – increasing the addiction.

•Smokeless tobacco use is a precursor to cigarette use. Specifically, adolescents who use smokeless tobacco are more likely to become cigarette smokers according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).

•Environmental concerns. Smokeless tobacco still uses the same tobacco manufacturing methods that cause deforestation, soil erosion, and poverty.

E-cigarettes have become increasingly popular, though much about the risks associated with them is unknown. Even though some users state that these devices have helped them reduce or quit smoking traditional cigarettes and helped to reduce their nicotine addiction, there is currently little evidence that e-cigarettes or vaporizers can help you quit smoking.

Neither e-cigarettes nor vaporizers are FDA approved "quit smoking" aids. If the manufacturers wanted to make this claim, they would have to adhere to specific FDA standards and clinical trials. They have yet to apply for such status. Aside from being addictive, nicotine itself is toxic to humans. The nicotine vapor in e-cigarettes and vaporizers may send a more concentrated dose of nicotine into user’s body. Choosing a lower “juice” or fluid isn't necessarily a reliable way to decrease nicotine intake as these substances are not standardized or guaranteed to contain the chemicals they advertise. FDA tests have found that similarly labeled e-cigarette cartridges released widely varying levels of nicotine per puff and that even cartridges labeled as nicotine free still contained nicotine. Another concern is that e-cigarettes and vaporizers contain toxic contaminants in the fluid and/or vapor. The short term and long term consequences of inhaling these chemicals has yet to be determined.

However, all forms of FDA approved nicotine replacement therapy such as gum, nicotine inhalers, lozenges and patches are allowed.

Tobacco products include all of the following:

◾A product containing, made or derived from tobacco or nicotine that is intended for human consumption, whether smoked, heated, chewed, absorbed, dissolved, inhaled, snorted, sniffed, or ingested by any other means, including, but not limited to cigarettes, cigars, little cigars, chewing tobacco, pipe tobacco, and snuff.

◾An electronic device that delivers nicotine or other vaporized liquids to the person inhaling from the device, including, but not limited to, an electronic cigarette, cigar, pipe, or hookah.

◾Any component, part, accessory of a tobacco product, whether or not sold separately.

 

“Tobacco product” does not include a product that has been approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration for sale as a tobacco cessation product or for other therapeutic purposes where the product is market and sold solely for such an approved purpose.

“Tobacco Free” means the use of cigarettes, pipes, cigars, smokeless tobacco, snuffs, and other tobacco products are prohibited on all University property.

“Smoke Free” means the use of cigarettes, pipes, cigars, and other “smoke” emanating products including e-cigarettes, vapor devices and other like products are prohibited on all University properties.

MailMan is designed around the idea that most lists are used for discussions between members. By default MailMan accepts mail from members and holds mail from anyone else pending approval from the owner/moderator of the list. You can change this default behavior for lists you own by doing the following.

  1. Go to the management interface for your list at

    lists.csusb.edu/mailman/admin/<list name>

    where <list-name> is the name of the list. For example, to manage my-list go to lists.csusb.eduailman/admin/my-list.

  2. Go to Privacy options... -> Sender filters.

  3. Scroll down to generic_nonmember_action and select one of the following:

  • Accept - Accepts all messages from anywhere (not recommended).
  • Hold - Ask for approval from an owner/moderator (default).
  • Reject - Send a message to the original sender and discard the message. This option disables owner/moderator approval.
  • Discard - Discard the message without sending a message to the original sender. This option also disables owner/moderator approval.
  1. Click the Submit Your Changes button when you are done.

 

Please note that accept_these_nonmembers, hold_these_nonmembers, reject_these_nonmembers, and discard_these_nonmembers options are checked before the generic action is taken.

A list that has other lists as recipients is know as an umbrella list and can be extremely tricky to set up. If you must set up this type of list read through the following instructions carefully.

Answer: Yes, some scholarships are not based on need. A student with at least a 3.0 GPA should apply. Also, there are two federal non-need based loans:

  • Federal Unsubsidized Direct Loan
  • Federal Parent Loans for Undergraduate Students

These loan programs require the submission of the Free Application For Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), and a separate loan application and/or promissory notes. In addition, all first time CSUSB students who borrow MUST complete an on-line Entrance Loan Counseling session. A reminder: first time, first year Freshmen borrowers will not receive their Unsubsidized Direct loan checks until 30 days after the start of their first term.

Answer: Eligibility for the Federal direct Subsidized Loan is based on need and is computed in the same way as eligibility for other need-based aid. The Free Application For Federal Aid (FAFSA) must be completed. Documents requested by the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships must be submitted by the student and a Master Promissory Note must be completed. It is important to start this process early. 

First time borrowers at CSUSB must complete an on-line Entrance Loan Counseling Session. First-time, first-year Freshmen borrowers will not receive their loan checks until 30 days after the start of their first term. All borrowers must attend an Exit Counseling Session upon exiting CSUSB.

Yes. Each year you must file the Free Application For Federal Aid (FAFSA) for the appropriate academic year and submit any documents that are requested. You must also meet the satisfactory academic progress requirements in order to qualify for aid each year.

Students who apply by the March 2 date and submit all requested documents and information by April 15 are more likely to receive funds by the time school starts in the fall. Applications filed after the March 2 date may not have funds ready for disbursement by the fall instruction start date.

Students who apply by the priority date are also more likely to receive all funds for which they are eligible. After the priority dates, funding in many programs may be exhausted. Applying early is always to the student's advantage.

Approximately ten days prior to the first day of each quarter. This is the earliest timeframe allowable per federal regulations. Aid disbursement methods are via Direct Deposit or mailed check. Note: Financial aid direct deposits/checks are issued to students for grants/loans with an excess credit reflected on their account balance.

The amount and type of aid offered to you is determined by your eligibility as a result of your FAFSA information and review of your file by the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships. If your aid is not enough to cover both your registration fees and campus housing costs, then you are responsible for payment of the balance. Contact Campus Housing and Student Accounts for payment of balance.

Grants/Scholarships are automatically credited towards your registration fees and applicable housing bill. Federal Loans ARE NOT automatically credited towards your registration fees and applicable housing bill. You must accept your loans on-line through myCoyote. After loans are accepted through myCoyote, they are credited towards your registration and applicable housing bill. If your grants and/or loans are less than your registration fees and applicable housing bill, you are responsible for payment of the balance. Failure to pay balance, may result in your classes being administratively dropped.

No. Nearly all financial aid notifications are sent to new admit and continuing students via their CSUSB email address.

You will be notified about your financial aid (file status, document requested, award notification, award revisions, etc.) by email at your CSUSB email address that was assigned to you by the IRT Support Center. Please check your CSUSB email address regularly for official university updates.

Yes. Students classified as nonresidents may appeal to the Chancellor’s Office within 30 calendar days of the issuance of the notification of the final campus decision. The campus decision may be appealed only if at least one of the following applies:

  1. The decision was based on:
    1. a significant error of fact;
    2. a significant procedural error; or
    3. an incorrect application of law which, if corrected, would require that the student be reclassified as a resident; and/or
  2. Significant new information, not previously known or available to the student, became available after the date of the campus decision classifying the student as a nonresident and based on the new information, the classification as a nonresident is incorrect.

Students must explain why the appeal meets one or more of the above appeal criteria and provide supporting documentation. For example, a “significant error of fact” could be demonstrated by stating that the campus incorrectly determined that a specific document, such as a driver’s license, was untimely and by providing a copy of the document establishing the error. An appeal that only states “a significant error of fact,” will be denied.

Appeals should be submitted online.

CSUSB, like all CSU campuses, determines initial residency for tuition based on the answers you provide in the admissions application.  If the residency questions asked through Cal State Apply do not provide enough information to make a residency determination you will be contacted via your Coyote email by a Residency Specialist.  In that communication, the Residency Specialist will ask for additional documentation to support your claim of California residency and will make a determination of residency status.

A past due account hold is placed when a student has a financial obligation to the University that is considered delinquent.  Please review your account via the finance section of your Student Center.  If you still have questions, you may contact our office in person, by phone, or by email.

If you select the "account inquiry" link in the finance section of your Student Center, you will see a breakdown of your charges, the amount of financial aid you are to receive, and the amount you owe will be listed in the "total due" column.  This is the amount you are responsible for paying by your assigned due date.

The Univeristy currently uses ECSI to create and send the 1098T tax forms.  The forms are not available on campus.  For more information please vist the following: 1098T forms.

To appeal charges you will need to submit an Appeal Application for Reversal of Tuition.  Please note; you must be withdrawn from the term and/or course for which you are appealing.  For more information on refund policies please visit the following; refund policies.

If you chose not to pay online, you may pay in person at the Student Financial Services Office.  Student Financial Services is located in University Hall Room 035 (lower level). Payments accepted in person include: cash, check, money order, traveler's check, cashier's check or pin-based ATM/Debit cards. Credit card payments are not accepted on campus.  

Tuition due dates can be found under the "charges due" tab in the finance section of your Student Center.  They may also be found on our website; tuition due dates.  Important: If you are a financial aid recipient you are only responsible for the portion that is not covered (if any amount remains) by your assigned due date.

After open enrollment has closed pre-payment of tuition and fees is required if you would like to enroll for the current term.  This period is notated with a pre-payment hold.  Your account will not reflect a balance for the term therefore you will need to add the terms tuition and fees to your shopping cart (if paying online). You will be required to pay all of your tuition and fees in advance prior to enrolling.  The pre-payment hold ONLY pertains to the term for which it states and will not prevent enrollment for any other term.  For more information on payment methods please visit the following; payment methods.  

When financial aid disburses to a student, it posts as a credit to his/her account.  Tuition Fees or other amounts owed are then subtracted from this aid.  The remaining credit can be sent to the student via direct deposit.  It takes approximately three working days for the balance of the aid to arrive in the student's bank account.  If for any reason a student's bank account changes or is closed, the student is responsible for cancelling or updating the direct deposit information on file.  Failure to do so may cause a delay in processing the refund. Students who have overpaid or dropped courses and need to request a refund may also use this direct deposit feature.  Simply enroll in direct deposit via MyCoyote.

Yes, there is a fee of $35 per an exam.

Starting early in 2017, certain employees may receive one or more forms providing information about the health care coverage that they had or were offered during 2016. Much like Form W-2 and Form 1099, which include information about the income you received, these new health care forms provide information that you may need when you file your individual income tax return. Also like Forms W-2 and 1099, these new forms will be provided to the IRS by the entity that provides the form to you.

The forms are:

  • Form 1095-B, Health Coverage. Health insurance providers (for example, health insurance companies) send this form to individuals they cover, with information about who was covered and when.
  • Form 1095-C, Employer-Provided Health Insurance Offer and Coverage. State Controllers Office (SCO) will send this form to certain employees, with information about what coverage the employer offered. This is for information purposes only and the employee should keep it with their tax return information.

The State Controller’s Office (SCO) will mail all 1095-Cs to the employee’s current mailing address. The SCO will pre-print the SCO address as the return address for all 1095-Cs. The SCO will send undeliverable 1095-Cs to the campus for distribution to the employees.

You will receive your award when you and the Registrar have fully completed the Certificate of Registration, and it has been received by the Society Headquarters. Fellowship recipients will receive the award in two payments, one in the fall and one in the spring. Can my award be sent to my attending university? The award will be sent directly to you. It is important that you provide us with a current address on your Certificate of Registration. It is your responsibility to update us on any changes in your current status.

No. If you are identified as having been exposed, you will receive separate notification from the San Bernardino County Department of Public Health.

Yes.  People who have received the BCG vaccine can receive a TB skin test.

The vaccine against TB is called Bacille Calmette-Guerin (BCG.) It does not always protect against TB.  It is not widely used in the U.S. but it is used in many other countries where TB is more common.

You most likely have Latent Tuberculosis Infection (LTBI.)  A person with LTBI cannot spread TB to others and is not contagious.  Only people with active TB disease can spread TB to other people. If you have LTBI you should consider treatment for this to prevent developing active TB disease.

You can have a skin test or a blood test.  If either is positive, it only tells you if you have the bacteria in your body, but doesn’t tell you if you have latent or active TB.

Further testing with a chest XRAY or a sputum sample may be needed to make the determination. 

See your primary care provider for tuberculosis testing.

The risk for developing active infection is much higher if someone’s immune system is weak.  People at the extremes of age (either very young or very old) often have weak immune systems. Medical conditions that cause a weakened immune system include:

  • Drug/substance use
  • HIV/AIDS
  • Diabetes
  • Organ transplant
  • Chronic steroid treatment for conditions such as organ transplant
  • Kidney disease
  • Certain cancers
  • Treatments for autoimmune diseases such as Crohn’s, Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis.

 

Seek medical evaluation and immediately contact your primary care provider for guidance.  You may contact your local health department

The symptoms depend on where in the body the bacteria is growing. If the bacteria infects the lungs, it can cause:

  1. A bad cough lasting more than 3 weeks
  2. Cough that brings up blood and/or phlegm     
  3. Fever and chills   
  4. Fatigue  
  5. Weight loss   
  6. Night sweats

After getting exposed to the TB bacteria, a couple of scenarios can happen. Some people may develop active TB soon (within weeks).  In others, the bacteria lays dormant.  This is the latent phase of infection.  There’s a 5-10% chance of developing an active infection without treatment.  The highest chance for developing the infection is within the first 1-2 years after getting the bacteria.  This chance decreases if you take treatment for Latent Tuberculosis Infection.

  • Close contacts of someone who is known to have active TB disease.
  • People from countries that have high rates of TB
  • People who work or live in high risk facilities such as hospitals, prisons, nursing homes, homeless shelters.
  • People who are homeless, HIV infected or inject drugs into their veins.

TB is spread through the air. When someone with active TB disease in the lungs or throat speaks or coughs, the bacteria gets into the air and can linger there for several hours afterwards.  Someone breathing this air can become infected with TB.  People with active TB disease are most likely to spread the infection to people they spend time with every day.  It spreads through close, day-to-day, regular contact.  Someone is unlikely to get infected after brief exposure.

TB is NOT spread by:

  • Surface contact
  • Touch (shaking hands)
  • Sharing toothbrush, foods or drink
  • Kissing  
  • Sharing clothing, bedding
  • Toilet seats

“TB” is the abbreviation for an infection called Tuberculosis.  Tuberculosis is a bacterial infection caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis.  Not everyone with TB gets sick.  The bacteria can lay dormant and not cause symptoms.  This is called Latent TB Infection (LTBI).  Treatment at the latent stage decreases the chance of ever developing the disease.

If not treated at the latent stage, it can progress to TB disease.  This infection usually attacks the lungs, but it can affect other parts of the body, such as the lymph nodes, spine, brain and kidneys.  If not treated, active TB infection can be fatal. 

If you are identified by county as having been exposed, free testing is being offered on June 12th and 13th. If you are not notified by county, but want to be tested anyway, please see your provider for this. (or if you are also enrolled as a student, you may use the SHC, but you will have to pay for the test.)

Testing among people who are not identified as being at risk will be handled as any other routine or elective testing.  See your primary care provider for this.  If you are enrolled as a student, you can see the Student Health Center for testing after June 16th. There will be a fee for the test.   Be aware we will be prioritizing students who have received county notification.

See your primary care provider or go to the screenings being done by county on our campus on June 12th or 13th.  The on-campus screenings will be done free of charge, on a first come-first served basis (not by appointment.)  They will take place in the Santos Manuel Student Union Four-Plex, Room 215-218 from 9:00 a.m-12:00 p.m. both days.

County will be working on notifying individuals during the week of June 5th, by either phone, email, text or USPS mail.  Here’s a list of what you can do in the meantime:

  1. Answer your phone if it rings
  2. Make sure your voice mailbox is set up 
  3. Check your voicemail messages
  4. Check your email messages
  5. Check for USPS mail at any address you have provided the campus
  • The Form W-2 Wage Statement reflects wages paid by warrants and/or direct deposit payments that were issued during the tax year, regardless of the pay period in which the wages were earned.
  • The Form W-2 includes warrants/payments dated January 1st through December 31st of each calendar year. It contains all wages and tax information for an employee regardless of the number of State agencies/campuses for which he or she worked during the tax year. (Only one (1) Form W-2 is issued for each employee).
  • All W-2 forms will be mailed no later than January 31st, directly from the State Controller’s Office (SCO) in Sacramento, to the employee’s mailing address on file with Payroll Services as of the November pay period of the calendar year 2019.
  • W-2s that are undeliverable by the United States Postal Service should be returned to our campus' Payroll Office (Sierra Hall, room 103), based on our campus’ agency code printed on each W-2 form. Payroll Services will notify active/current employees and their respective department, via email, when undeliverable W-2s have been returned to us.
  • Employees can retrieve their returned W-2 from Payroll Services (SH-103). Please bring your photo ID with you.
  • Employees, who do not receive their W-2’s within a couple of weeks from when the SCO mailed them, may request that Payroll order a duplicate W-2 on their behalf (no fee required), providing the written request is received by Payroll prior to February deadline.
  • Employees who do not receive their W-2 Wage Statement by the February deadline, and did not request that Payroll order duplicate W-2’s on their behalf, will be required to request duplicate W-2 forms directly from the State Controller’s Office W-2 Unit at a cost of $8.50. Normally, during tax time, the SCO estimates a 2 – 3 week turn-around period. The sooner the request is mailed to the SCO’s W-2 Unit, the quicker you will receive your duplicate. Payroll cannot request duplicate W-2’s on behalf of employees after February 22, 2019.
  • Prior to requesting a duplicate W-2, please contact your local Post Office to see if your W-2 Wage Statement may be there.
  • Procedures for requesting duplicate W-2s can be found at the SCO's Request Duplicate W-2 page.

The Office of the University Ombuds and the Employee Assistance Program (EAP) share several important features, namely confidentiality, high sensitivity, and a staff experienced in organizational problems.

The Office of the University Ombuds is staffed by an organizational ombuds with extensive experience in conflict management and alternative dispute resolution. The Ombuds can help you evaluate just about any kind of concern you may have regarding life, work, or school at CSUSB. Finally, the mission of the Office includes communicating trends and patterns of problems to senior officials at CSUSB so that systemic problems can be identified and addressed.

The Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is an employee benefit offered by CSUSB. The EAP is intended to help employees deal with personal problems that may adversely impact their job performance, health, and well-being. The EAP generally offers short-term counseling and referral services for employees and their family members. Community Action Employee Assistance Program (CAEAP) is the contracted provider for this employee benefit.

For complaints by students or staff members of Discrimination, Harassment, or Retaliation complaint based on any protected statuses except gender or sexual orientation, you must seek the services of the Co-DHR Officer, Alex Jajera in Sierra Hall, Room 110 or telephone 909-537-5138. Faculty with DHR complaints based on any protected statuses except gender or sexual orientation must seek the services of the Co-Deputy DHR Officer, Seval Yildirmin in AD-101B or telephone 909-537-5029.

All formal complaints regarding Discrimination, Harassment or Retaliation based on gender or sexual orientation (DHR) will be referred to the Cristina Martin, the Title IX Coordinator for investigation. The Title IX office is located in the Santos Manuel Student Union Room 103A. For more information, telephone 909-537-5669.

Yes. While the Ombuds is not authorized to receive formal complaints, the Ombuds can help you better understand processes and potential outcomes before you decide whether to file a complaint. The Ombuds can also help identify alternatives to formal grievance procedures or direct you to the appropriate procedures and office should you wish to file a formal complaint.

The Ombuds does not handle formal complaints or legal issues of any kind. You may, however, consult with the Ombuds Office before using a formal process.

You are not precluded from pursuing formal remedies if informal approaches through the Ombuds Office do not work. We will remind you of the deadlines for initiating formal options, and we can refer you to those options if necessary.

The Office Ombuds Services reports to the President of the University which helps ensure its independence and impartiality; otherwise, it is independent of all other University offices and decision-making practices and outside of existing departmental structures. The Ombuds does not make administrative decisions and does not have authority to change the outcome of formal processes such as decisions in a formal grievance. Services are visitor initiated. All processes and strategies are used at the discretion of the visitor. The Office also provides a very strict promise of confidentiality which allows you to have off-the-record conversations about highly sensitive problems. If you aren't sure where to take your concern, the Ombuds is a safe place to start.

No. By only telling a staff member in the Office of Ombuds Services about your situation, you have not formally notified any University official of your conflict, dispute or complaint. In order for the University to take official action to remedy your conflict, dispute, or complaint, you must share it with someone who represents the University. The staff members in the Office of Ombuds Services do not represent the University and therefore cannot receive formal complaints.

Meeting with an ombudsperson does not affect your ability to pursue formal complaints. The Ombuds can help you find the appropriate person to speak to in order to request that the University take some action, if that is what you want. Important rights may be affected by the actual date when formal action is initiated and/or when CSUSB is informed of allegedly wrongful behavior, and in some situations, you may wish to consult with an attorney regarding your rights.

Yes. Confidentiality is essential to the functioning of the Ombuds Office. We do not maintain identifying records. Communications with the Ombuds are made with the understanding that they are confidential and that the Ombuds will not testify with respect to confidential communications or participate in formal, grievance, or other legal proceedings. Consistent with the International Ombudsman Association Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice, the Ombuds Office also claims that these communications are privileged, with the privilege held by the Ombuds Office and not the visitor. The only exceptions to this confidentiality are when, during the course of communications with the Ombuds, permission is granted to the Ombuds to make disclosure and the Ombuds agrees to do so or, if the Ombuds determines that there is an imminent risk of serious harm.

You'll be given the opportunity to complete an electronic intake process. Completion of the electronic  intake process is completely voluntary. The office does not retain the intake form or any other permanent records.The Ombuds  is a campus resource to assist you in resolving any university-related concerns confidentially and informally. The Ombuds will listen to your concerns, ask clarifying questions and help you explore options that you may want to use to resolve your issue.

University students, administrators, faculty, and staff can contact the Ombuds regarding their campus-related concerns.

We encourage visitors to schedule an appointment by phone at 909-537-5635. Visitors are also welcome to drop-in during business hours. We want individuals to feel comfortable when they visit the office. Depending on the circumstances and willingness of all parties, visitors may bring guests. This option can be discussed at the time of the visitor's initial contact with the office.

Any kind of University-related problem may be brought to the Office by any member of the CSUSB community. You might want to contact the Ombuds when:

  • You need an impartial and confidential sounding board.
  • You think you have been treated unfairly.
  • You are having interpersonal conflicts.
  • You want to report a problem but first want to get a sense of possible outcomes or process.
  • You have concerns about career advancement and job satisfaction or security.
  • You are having problems with institutional non-responsiveness and red-tape.
  • You want to discuss a University policy or practice that you think is unfair or problematic.
  • You have concerns about procedural fairness or due process.
  • You are not sure how to interpret a University policy or procedure.
  • You are not sure which University policy applies to your situation.
  • You need assistance in identifying the formal channels you would use to file a formal notice with the University.
  • You are not sure where else to turn for help and need guidance.

"Ombuds' is the shortened, generally Americanized form of the term "Ombudsman." Here, the term "ombuds" refers to the designated Ombuds who provides problem-solving resources to the CSUSB campus community.

The term "Ombuds" is broadly understood to refer to a person who, acting in an impartial capacity, is appointed to help resolve complaints ("What is an Organizational Ombudsman?"). In North America and Europe, the role has evolved, especially in recent years, into many different forms with different missions and practice standards. Most Ombuds who work in US-based academic settings are "organizational" Ombuds, and work to address concerns and problems of their constituencies using informal means. Many Ombuds, including the CSUSB Ombuds, practice according to the International Ombudsman Association Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice.

The first place to look is at the Committee Book on the Committee Information page. If you do not find what you are looking for there, please contact the Senate office at sylvia.myers@csusb.edu with your request.

First, please try checking the Faculty Administrative Manual (FAM) page. If you do not see what you are looking for on that page, please contact the Senate office with your request at sylvia.myers@csusb.edu.

The full Senate usually meets once a month on a Tuesday from 2-4pm in the Pine Room. The EC meets every Tuesday during the AY from 2-4pm in AD-145. For further information regarding specific meeting dates of the full Senate, please view the Calendar page.

Although our student callers do an exceptional job in our calling center, they make over 20,000 calls each year and a slight possibility exists for miscommunication along the way. If you receive a reminder for a pledge that you do not remember making or for one that you have already paid, please contact us and we will be happy to make any necessary corrections for you and answer any questions you might have.

Gifts to the CSUSB Annual Fund make a significant difference in the educational lives of students. They provide support to meet the most pressing needs of the university. Your gift may provide for classroom and laboratory technology, library materials and acquisitions, faculty and student research, or special campus projects, and allows us to take advantage of unique opportunities as they arise.

When you decide to make an unrestricted gift, you provide CSUSB the flexibility to apply funds wherever they will make the greatest impact. Unrestricted gifts allow us to support the university’s areas of greatest needs and to take advantage of unique opportunities as they arise. You may, however, choose to designate your gift to a specific department or program.  From the main drop-down you may select any of the leading campus-wide areas of support that benefit every student or you may choose to refine your gift to a specific college or program. In selecting your favorite college in the drop-down menu, you will find vital programs of primary importance. If you prefer to support another area of campus, you may choose the "Other" option and key in your gift designation of choice. If you would like to find out more about a specific area on campus, please contact us for more information.

There are many different ways you can impact the lives of students at Cal State San Bernardino. Please visit our How to Give page to learn more.

The security of your personal information is of utmost importance to us. If you have decided to make your gift using a credit card, we will make sure your gift is processed as quickly as possible. Your information is briefly stored in a secure location until the transaction is successfully completed and confirmed, then it is immediately destroyed. Making a credit card gift online is equally secure as the information is processed via our encrypted secure website. Per PCI compliance regulations, we never keep credit card information on file.

Many companies will match the gifts of current and retired employees made to non-profit institutions like Cal State San Bernardino. In many cases, you can double or even triple the impact that your gift will have for the university by filling out a simple form. Please contact your Human Resources department to learn about your company’s matching gift opportunities and to obtain a form.

You can always reach out to the Office of Strategic Communication or the Athletics Department for more information. Public affairs can answer design and logo approval questions. Athletics can answer questions regarding the application process and vendor specific questions.

Office of Strategic Communication – logo@csusb.edu or (909) 537-5007

Mike Molina, Athletics Department – mmolina@csusb.edu or (909) 537-3076

All minimum size and clear space rules must be honored when producing promotional items. You can consider using an alternate CSUSB core logo that will fit the space better. If the imprint area still doesn’t allow for use of a CSUSB logo, then you can typeset the university name or use a CSUSB nameplate. See the visual identity guidelines for more information on minimum sizes, clear space and university nameplates.

If your vendor is designing the artwork or prepping a proof for you, you will need to reference the Learfield Licensing Partners CSUSB logo sheet to identify the logo number to give your vendor. Your vendor has access to all of the logos on this pdf. (Please keep in mind that not all departments are authorized to use the athletics logos or university seal.)

If you are designing your own artwork, you can request logos online

The TM symbol will need to be added into the final artwork before it is approved for all references to university names and logos.

If you would like to have your products made through a vendor that is not licensed, please have the vendor contact Learfield Licensing Partners to start the licensing process. Please note that the licensing process may take several weeks. 

For unique products or one-time orders, vendors may be granted a special license.  Please contact Mike Molina in the Athletics Department regarding special requests

Yes, but you must first purchase your permit online. On Move-In/Welcome Day be sure to pick up your Coyote OneCard prior to picking up your permit. You MUST show your Coyote OneCard to pick up your previously purchased parking permit.

We strongly encorage to check other CSUs with open registration before considering to be a walk-in: www.ets.org/csu

 

Academic advising is an educational process by which you are integrated into the university's academic community. Academic Advisors help newly admitted transfer students make informed decisions about their course selection and university policies and procedures. Coming from another institution (community college or other four-year university), you may have credits earned for courses towards your degree at CSUSB, and your Academic Advisor can assist you in that process.

During Orientation, you will participate in a group advising experience. You will learn about academic program requirements, academic policies and procedures, and other services that will help you achieve you academic success. Enrollment in courses for fall semester will take place during your assigned registration date and time. Your registration date and time will be available on your myCoyote portal. If your Orientation webinar does not occur until after your registration window begins, you will not register for courses until you complete the webinar session.
 


Registration Virtual Help Desk

To assist you with any questions you have while registering for courses, we have set up Virtual Help Desk sessions. Join us if you have questions about courses, pre-requisites, or other academic-related topics at CSUSB. You can "stop by" during any of the open times, as you need! Click Join A Session to enter the Virtual Help desk during any of the designated times.

You will receive an e-mail to your Coyote e-mail account when registration is open. Please check your CSUSB e-mail regularly for any communication from CSUSB.

Orientation Registration

Registration will be online via your myCoyote account. You may register for an orientation session once you have paid the $100 enrollment confirmation deposit to CSUSB. Once you have paid this deposit, please allow 24-48 hours to gain access to the orientation registration page.

Keep in Mind

  1. Space is limited for each orientation session. The earlier you pay your confirmation deposit, accept your offer of admission, and complete all your requirements for full admission, the more likely you are to receive the orientation date of your choice.
  2. We strongly encourage you to register for the first available orientation date that you can attend. Some of the later transfer orientation sessions might occur after your assigned fall semester class registration date and time.

The computers contain programs primarily for math and statistics courses. They are also used by tutors to pull up online course materials whenever a student needs to refer to such sources. The computers in the tutoring room may not be used for writing papers or surfing the Internet.

No. Tutors cannot be responsible for any lost or stolen items. It is your responsibility to care for your things.

No. Tutors must adhere to their work schedules because they also have classes and other obligations. Please be respectful of the tutors' schedules.

We do not guarantee to have any textbooks available for the classes that we tutor. We do attempt to obtain current textbooks from each department. However, in most cases, these textbooks are for tutor reference and for times when you may forget your own textbook. You should always bring your books and other study materials.

No. Unfortunately, tutoring is only for CSUSB students that are currently registered in the course they are seeking tutoring for. Tutors are also not able to help with course material from other colleges, regardless if you are also registered at CSUSB.

The point of tutoring is to assist you in feeling confident about tackling your subject matter and for you to develop your problem solving skills. This cannot be achieved if you use the tutor as a crutch to fall back on. In addition, your professor needs to evaluate YOUR work, not the tutor's.

Tutors are not permitted to help you with your exact homework questions/problems. Tutors will assist you with problems that are similar to your actual homework problems. In some cases, they may assist you with one or two actual homework problems to clarify any confusing points or to get you started in the right direction.

When you first enter the room, a tutor should acknowledge you to let you know that they are aware that you have just come in for help. If a tutor does not notice you entering the room, please introduce yourself to the tutor so they know that you need assistance and he/she will be with you shortly. Do not sit in the room without indicating to a tutor that you are there for assistance.

In addition to standard school supplies such as pen and paper, you should bring all the proper course materials (i.e., textbook, syllabus, handouts) so the tutor can gain a clear understanding of what you may need assistance with. You should also have specific questions for the tutor in mind.

It is necessary for Testing and Tutoring to track the number of visitors and the frequency of visits for tutoring because these numbers determine the amount of funding that the tutoring program will receive and which subjects will be tutored. So please, take a moment to sign in so our tutoring funds will not be cut.

First, you must make sure that we have a tutor for your subject. Then you must sign-in on the Testing and Tutoring check-in computer. Please see a Front Desk Associate if you need assistance with signing in.

All students must accept their offer of admission by paying their Enrollment Confirmation Deposit. The non-refundable, non-transferable deposit declares your intent to attend our campus and must be made in order to enroll in courses. You may pay the deposit through your MyCoyote account. 

ECD Tutorial 2019

Yes! You do not have to have anything written yet to have a productive writing consultation. We can help you decipher the prompt, discuss possible topics, narrow your focus, brainstorm, and help you decide where to begin. Having a conversation and bouncing ideas around with a consultant can take some of the difficulties out of starting a writing project.

We do offer group appointments. Group writing consultations are very useful when working on group projects, including group presentations and group papers. We can collaborate with your group to unify your ideas, discuss places of concern, and brainstorm. Please make sure all of your group members are at the consultation; we are only able to work on group projects if all members of the group are at the consultation.

If you know you will be late for an appointment, you can go online and cancel your appointment or move your appointment to a time that is better for you. You are also welcome to call the Writing Center at (909) 537-5232 as soon as you can, and we will try our best to accommodate you.

In addition to making appointments, you can try to get a consultation as a walk-in anytime, even if there are no appointments available. For example, if another student does not show up for their appointment, you have the opportunity to work with a consultant at that time. Walk-in consultations are available on a first-come, first-served basis. To be seen as a walk-in, please come to the Writing Center in CE-310 and speak to our receptionist. We also offer email and Zoom appointments.

If you cannot keep your appointment, please login to our appointments page, click on your yellow appointment box, and cancel your appointment. If you have questions about how to do this, please call (909) 537-5232 to speak with our receptionist.

Everyone is able to make two appointments a week. If you would like more appointments in a week, you are welcome to try to be seen two more times as a walk-in. This allows up to four appointments a week.

To make a Writing Center appointment, go to the schedule login page and create an account. Once you have done this and logged in, you can view the schedule and select an appointment time that is best for you.

We are happy to work with grammar in a writing consultation. While we do not fix your grammar for you, we will point out places in your writing where things like comma issues occur, why it is an issue, how to identify it, how to fix it, and where to locate additional grammar resources. As we read your paper with you, we will collaborate on ways to make changes to your writing.

If you do not understand your assignment, you are welcome to bring it to the Writing Centers and a consultant will collaborate with you to decipher the prompt, brainstorm ideas, and make a plan for writing. We can also work with you to develop questions about the assignment to ask your professor.  

Please bring any materials related to your writing project. These materials might include: a print or digital copy or your writing project, the writing prompt, books or articles, notes from class, or notes from your professor.

All consultants work with multilingual writers, and several of them facilitate English conversation groups.

Yes, we can work with you on any writing from any class, as well as resumes, scholarship letters, emails, etc. Our consultants are from various majors. While your consultant may not share your major, all consultants are trained as experienced readers. We can support you as you focus your ideas, address the prompt, integrate sources, and respond to your project for any class.

All writers can benefit from collaboration. By collaborating with our writing consultants, for example, we can work to identify your writing strengths, give feedback on your writing projects, brainstorm, and create an outline before you write. We can also give advice on how you can integrate sources, cite and format your paper, further develop your ideas, and strengthen your arguments.

Students are represented at the Steering Committee with a graduate and undergraduate student, in addition to working closely with the CSUSB Associated Students Incorporated (ASI). This cooperative relationship has generated a resolution endorsing the switch to a semester calendar. That resolution can be read here: ASI Resolution.  If you are interested in participating, contact ASI for more information!

The Quarter2Semester team has put this web resource together to help students understand the impact of switching to a semester calendar. It will be updated regularly as the steering committee finalizes recommendations to the president. This site will also provide students with important documents and forms, which will be helpful as the transition gains speed. If you have any questions, please contact the Quarter2Semester office.

We've put up a Question & Answer page, too.  Send us your questions!

CSUSB faculty, staff and advisors will be working to ensure that students stay on track for graduation.  If you are planning to graduate in Spring 2020 or before, you will not be affected by the change.  If you are graduating in Fall 2020 or later, you will be advised as to how to graduate on time.

Each academic department will be creating course 'equivalencies' so that students who begin on a quarter calendar can still finish their degree on a semester calendar (i.e. Course X on the quarter calendar will be Course Y on the semester calendar).  Beginning in Spring Quarter 2019, there will be much more activity, advising and information for students.  Right now, faculty are working on switching courses and degree programs, including GE, to the semester calendar.  That process will be complete by Winter Quarter 2019.  Don't worry!  There will be a lot of announcements to keep you informed!

In the meantime, see the campus Pledges to Undergraduate and Graduate students in the sidebar on the left.  You've got our promises in writing!

The Chancellor of the California State University wants to have all of our 23 CSU campuses on a similar calendar.  This will allow us to better share resources and coordinate activities.  Until recently (when conversion begain, 18 of the 23 CSU campuses used semesters and only 6 used quarters.  This is now changing with the quarter campuses converting to semester terms: CSULA and CSU Bakersfield changed to semesters in Fall 2016, CSU Pomona and CSU East Bay are moving to semesters in Fall 2018 and CSUSB in Fall 2020, respectively. 

Because community colleges also use a semester calendar, semesters will make it easier for students to transfer from community colleges to CSUSB, as well.

Beginning in Fall 2020, CSUSB will have semester-length terms rather than quarter-length terms.  In other words, the academic year will consist of two terms, rather than three:  you will register for classes twice a year, pay fees twice a year, have final exam periods twice a year.

First-Year Student admission requirements

Transfer admission requirements

CSUSB is an impacted campus. Out of local area or specific major admissions criteria may apply. Applicants who are denied admission to CSU San Bernardino may submit an Admission Appeal Request no more than 15 business days after the date the applicant was notified by email of their denial by the Office of Admissions & Student Recruitment.

On the Travel website is a plethora of applicable policies, procedures, forms, and links that will provide the individual preparing the travel paperwork with much of the information they need. However, we recognize that handling travel preparations may be daunting and we invite travelers and those making travel arrangements to contact us with their questions and special needs. We will be happy to assist in any way we can.

Frequently asked questions related to travel

All equipment which meets the property requirements will be tagged with a CSUSB bar coded identification number prior to delivery to the ordering department or shortly after it has been delivered to the ordering department. It remains so identified as long as it is in the custody of the University. Assigned property numbers are removed only when the property has been "surveyed" (See "Survey of Property from Records", below). Any additional identification by a department should be applied in a manner that avoids confusion with the State property number. Should the identification number be accidentally or mistakenly removed, the property will be tagged with a new tag and the information transferred to the new record.

Equipment is tagged and entered into the University's official inventory at different thresholds. Firearms at any value are tagged.  Computers, portable projectors, and other equipment identified as "instructional" are tagged when their value is at least $500 including tax and shipping. Other equipment is tagged at $2,500 and occasionally items valued at less than $2,500 that are determined by Property Management to be sensitive may also be tagged.

If a department wishes to identify equipment that does not qualify for inventory tagging, Property has tamper resistant non-bar-coded, numbered "Property of CSUSB" labels available for distribution. Items identified by these non-bar-coded labels will not be tracked by Property and will not be entered into the University's official inventory but can be used by the department for its own tracking purposes.

Information on how to tag campus inventory

Departments may request surplus equipment items to be moved to this storage area for sale, reuse, disposal, or recycling through the Property Coordinator. The procedures and forms for such requests are detailed in the CSUSB Property Management Handbook.

The Property Coordinator will complete the required paperwork to remove equipment items from CSUSB inventory records and will coordinate the move of the items with Custodial Services.

To arrange for the removal of non-equipment items, departments shall contact Custodial Services to arrange for the items to be moved to the Facilities Services Storage Facility. No paperwork needs to be completed for the disposal of non-equipment items. Because such items are those that, because of their lesser dollar value (under $500), are not tagged or inventoried.

As moving services are not considered to be a maintenance function, such services will be performed on a chargeback basis by Facilities Services’ Custodial Services, based on the actual costs of in-house labor or contractor pricing (per Executive Order 847).

The Recycling Coordinator and Property Coordinator will determine the appropriate final disposition of surplus items moved to the storage facility by coordinating any of the following options:

  • Offered to campus departments
  • Sold at auction or through sealed bid sale
  • Transferred to another State agency
  • Donated to a non-profit organization or a state public school
  • Redeemed for scrap value
  • Discarded properly, if item has no residual value

Departmental personnel do not have the authority to dispose of state-owned surplus items. The Recycling Coordinator and Property Coordinator must manage such disposal.

Information on property surplus.

Requests for supplies and services are initiated through submittal of an approved on-line requisition. Any special requirements or information which will assist the Purchasing Office should be included on the requisition. Instructions and procedures related to entering and inquiring against requisitions and purchases orders can be found on the Purchasing with PeopleSoft page.

A training session is required before access to enter requisitions is granted. Training is coordinated through the CMS Office.

Information on how to make a purchase.

All invoices are to be submitted directly to Accounts Payable and must reference the purchase order number issued authorizing the purchase. If a department should receive an invoice from a vendor, the department should immediately forward it to Accounts Payable in SH-105. Please ensure the purchase order is referenced on the invoice.

Invoices are accepted via regular mail, fax, or email at payables@csusb.edu.

Invoices must be addressed to the University, include the vendor name, remitting address, identify the purchase order number, and must be itemized.

Information on how to pay an invoice. 

All community members must register for a 2 unit course, pay an additional community member fee of $200, and have the professor agree to have you on their trip.

They will need to attend the Mandatory Orientation, attend all the academic portions of the trip, and stay with the group.

In addition, none of the scholarships/discounts will apply to them and will have to pay the whole program cost.

For some of the faculty-led study abroad programs, you may request any faculty with whom you are taking a Winter (for Spring break programs) or Summer (for summer programs) course to allow you to work on a Global Enhancement Contract.   A global enhancement contract is an agreement you sign with the faculty allowing you to enhance your course experience by integrating a global experience into any of the course assignments.   This contract allows you to join the faculty-led study abroad program, without enrolling for a study abroad only course.  You will need to secure and notify CGM's coordinator of the Global Enhancement Contract prior to the application deadline unless you are joining a study abroad specific course associated with that program.

No. You cannot take a study abroad class pass/fail, nor audit a study abroad class.

Sometimes, but not always. For some programs, you may not register until you get there.  Regardless of whether you can officially pre-register, you must meet with the Registrar’s office before you leave to discuss the classes you will take while abroad, to ensure they will transfer, and to confirm you understand how they will count for credit at CSUSB.  You will need to have some flexibility with courses as we cannot guarantee you can take a specific course while you are abroad. This process will take place once you are approved by CSUSB to study abroad.

The opportunity to take a Summer Term class at CSUSB before a summer study abroad program varies from program to program depending on the summer program calendar and study abroad dates. 

Some programs do require a visa. The cost of the visa as well as the application process may vary by country and type of program. Feel free to check in with the Center or speak with your embassy about visa needs abroad.

Please visit the U.S. State Department website for detailed instructions.

The local San Bernardino postal office has passport services and passport photo services. Businesses that have in-store photo processing may also have passport photo services. Note: The cost and number of pictures that you receive may vary by store.

For all CSUSB programs (programs listed on the website), grades will be transferred from abroad (with approval of the registrar) and will factor into your CSUSB GPA. 

Living arrangements vary by program and location and may include homestays, dormitories, and apartments/flats. Additionally, the type of students you live with may include other CSUSB students, American students from other universities, and students from the host country or other visiting students. Please check program webpages for more information about housing options.

Yes, there are opportunities for financial aid through CSUSB and through other means. If you are concerned about the costs of study abroad, make sure to meet with a staff member from the Office of Financial Aid who can provide you with financial planning and financial aid information.

The cost of studying abroad varies by program and term. See the individual program webpages for specific program costs-- financial information can be found on a program's budget sheets. Some programs may be less expensive than a term at CSUSB, while others may be more expensive. This is due to what the program cost covers as well as exchange rates and the cost of living in and traveling to the program location. 

All programs offered through Center for Global Management do not have a foreign language requirement.

All study abroad programs require a minimum GPA of 2.3 and good academic standing.  Our graduate faculty-led program to South Korea requires a minimum GPA of 3.0. Non-faculty-led programs may have specific requirements of which you should check with the sponsoring department or organizations for details.

Although our student callers do an exceptional job in our calling center, they make over 20,000 calls each year and a slight possibility exists for miscommunication along the way. If you receive a reminder for a pledge that you do not remember making or for one that you have already paid, please contact us and we will be happy to make any necessary corrections for you and answer any questions you might have.

Gifts to the CSUSB Annual Fund make a significant difference in the educational lives of students. They provide support to meet the most pressing needs of the university. Your gift may provide for classroom and laboratory technology, library materials and acquisitions, faculty and student research, or special campus projects, and allows us to take advantage of unique opportunities as they arise.

When you decide to make an unrestricted gift, you provide CSUSB the flexibility to apply funds wherever they will make the greatest impact. Unrestricted gifts allow us to support the university’s areas of greatest needs and to take advantage of unique opportunities as they arise. You may, however, choose to designate your gift to a specific department or program.  From the main drop-down you may select any of the leading campus-wide areas of support that benefit every student or you may choose to refine your gift to a specific college or program. In selecting your favorite college in the drop-down menu, you will find vital programs of primary importance. If you prefer to support another area of campus, you may choose the "Other" option and key in your gift designation of choice. If you would like to find out more about a specific area on campus, please contact us for more information.

There are many different ways you can impact the lives of students at Cal State San Bernardino. Please visit our How to Give page to learn more.

The security of your personal information is of utmost importance to us. If you have decided to make your gift using a credit card, we will make sure your gift is processed as quickly as possible. Your information is briefly stored in a secure location until the transaction is successfully completed and confirmed, then it is immediately destroyed. Making a credit card gift online is equally secure as the information is processed via our encrypted secure website. Per PCI compliance regulations, we never keep credit card information on file.

Many companies will match the gifts of current and retired employees made to non-profit institutions like Cal State San Bernardino. In many cases, you can double or even triple the impact that your gift will have for the university by filling out a simple form. Please contact your Human Resources department to learn about your company’s matching gift opportunities and to obtain a form.

If you are not able to identify a CSUSB study abroad program that fits your plan of studies, you may want to consider participating

 

Non-CSUSB Programs: We strongly recommend you consider CSUSB-approved programs only.  We have carefully selected the programs we offer because of their comparable academics and professional levels of instruction to our campus courses.

For information on all the current available programs listed by location, visit https://csusb-horizons.symplicity.com/index.php?au=& ck=. Once you have reviewed some of the study abroad information, we recommend you meet with Veronica Lee, study abroad programs support, about the specific program(s) in which you are interested.

Now! Early planning is essential to studying abroad. 

Yes. As long as you plan early, it’s usually possible.

When you should study abroad depends on several factors, such as your year in school, your major(s)/minor(s), graduation requirements, leadership positions and other campus commitments, etc.  Early planning is key in helping you decide when studying abroad best fits into your program plan. 

First-year students are eligible for Winter Quarter programs during their first year and for Summer programs the summer after their first year at CSUSB.

  • Study abroad is an excellent addition to any academic program, regardless of your major.
  • Study abroad is a unique opportunity to learn about the world and broaden your horizons while continuing your academic education. 
  • Study abroad gives you the chance to look at life through a different perspective, to learn more about colorful individuals and the idiosyncracies of cultures. You'll be surprised how much you learn about yourself, too.
  • Study abroad is a valuable experience that will enhance your resume. Many employers are looking for individuals who have practical experience living in a different culture. Studying abroad affirms to employers you are an independent and resourceful risk-taker who is able to deal with the stresses of uncertainty and unexpected challenges. 

The Center for Global Management (CGM)  is located in the Jack Brown Hall room JB 404.  Feel free to call us at 909-537-4362.

CSUSB is an impacted campus, receiving more applications from CSU qualified students than we can enroll. Missing a deadline, even by one day, for any reason, could result in you being blocked from registering in courses for the quarter you applied to.

If you were already registered in courses for the quarter you applied to, missing a deadline could result in your being dropped from courses and not being allowed to enroll in the quarter again. If you are not able to attend the quarter you applied to and still wish to attend CSUSB, you would need to apply again to a later, available quarter.

Generally speaking, baccalaureate-level courses from accredited institutions do transfer. Check out the ASSIST website to see what your California community college coursework transfers to at CSUSB. Another way to determine whether a course is transferable is where the course falls into the numbering system for transfer courses at your community college.

If you are transferring from another accredited university, we will use all of the units that would count toward a bachelor’s degree. Your transferable units will be determined and placed by the Office of the Registrar after you have been admitted to Cal State San Bernardino.

If you are already attending a community college or another university, please note Cal State San Bernardino will only accept upper division transfer students. This means you must be fully eligible as an upper division transfer student by the end of the spring term if you are applying for fall at Cal State San Bernardino. Lower division transfer students, or those with fewer than 60 transferable semester units, will not be admitted to Cal State San Bernardino.

An impacted major is one where more applications are received from eligible students during the initial filing period than the campus can enroll. There are four majors at CSUSB where admission requirements for the major are set higher than other majors at CSUSB. These majors are Pre-Criminal Justice, Kinesiology – Allied Health, Pre-Nursing, Pre-Psychology, and Pre-Social Work. Please visit our impaction information page for more information.

Applicants to Nursing and Social Work will be required to complete a supplemental application in order to be fully admitted into the major.

California residents are the only students who will be accepted into the Nursing major.

Most importantly, be aware that you should never have to pay anyone for information regarding financial aid. Free applications for student aid are available online or at the financial aid center on campus.

All government grants, scholarships and loan applications for financial aid are available at FAFSA.

Free federal assistance is available to all students who demonstrate financial need. Cal Grant money will help qualifying state residents. Scholarships are available to students who meet their application requirements.

Aid is also available to help students and their parents pay for any college expenses through loans.       

Our Financial Aid Office has information about Cal State San Bernardino’s own scholarship opportunities and application information.

The Campaign for College Opportunity is a scholarship contest open to all California 6th – 12th grade students.  Eligible students are allowed to enter the contest each year.

If you have a confirmation number from Cal State Apply, you should hear from Cal State San Bernardino within approximately two weeks. If you have not received any acknowledgement of your application after that time, please contact us by phone at (909) 537-5188 or by e-mail at moreinfo@csusb.edu.

You may submit an application online at Cal State Apply.

All applicants must pay a non-refundable, non-transferable processing fee of $55 for every CSU application submitted unless qualified for a fee waiver. Qualified students may apply for a need based fee waiver that may be used for up to four campuses.

The CSU undergraduate application does not require you to write an essay or submit any letters of recommendation. Students applying to our Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) will need to complete a supplemental application and additional information is necessary.

Students applying to an impacted major may have to submit additional information for full admission to the major.

Please notify the Property Management office by filling out the following form:  http://csusb.az1.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_9SSTEsPopU8FRhr .  This form will collect the necessary information needed to enter your asset into PeopleSoft.  The form is conveniently located in the Forms and Documents section of the Property Management website.

For financial aid purposes, 12-semester units is considered full-time and 6-semester units is considered half-time.

Spotlight on Technology: Virtual Reality

Time: 12-1:30 pm, light lunch will be served

Location: John M. Pfau Library, Basement PL 003

 

Virtual reality—fully immersive 3D virtual environments in which you can move around freely and even interact with objects—is poised to become a mainstream technology in higher education. Virtual reality offers students true-to-life experiential lessons in areas as diverse as archeology, history, nursing, chemistry, medicine, art, or digital humanities. Although the possibilities of this technology to produce highly interactive and impactful lessons are well recognized, we are at the very beginning of understanding how to incorporate VR elements into our courses. Join us for a lunchtime conversation on VR with instructional technologist Garrett Trask and play with our VR gear!

Location: John M. Pfau Library, Basement PL 003

 

BYOL, Bring Your Own Laptop. In this hands-on workshop, you will learn the basics of Softchalk with instructional designer Elizabeth Viramontes-Merino. SoftChalk is a platform that enables faculty to develop interactive online lessons by combining multimedia (text, video and audio material) with interactive learning activities such as quizzes or visual sorting exercises. Moreover, learning activities on the Softchalk platform “communicate” with the Blackboard Gradebook: whatever scored activities students perform as part of the lesson will automatically appear in your course’s gradebook. Softchalk is very easy to use: you can author a lesson just like you author a Microsoft Word document; the application does the heavy lifting of “translating” your content into HTML and posting it on Blackboard.

Not at all. All programs offered by CGM are programs that are presently taught 100% in English. However, if you want to learn the language of the country you will be in, there are several free and fun ways to learn languages that you can look up online and on your smartphone. 

  1. In recognition of students choosing to live in the surrounding community, any concerns regarding their efforts to be good stewards of community standards and civically responsible adults should first be directed to the students themselves. This allows for a more direct understanding of the expectations and suggestions of living within a residential community. Direct contact information should be exchanged so immediate concerns can be addressed. When complaints involve a rental property, it is also suggested to involve the property owner in all correspondence.
  2. Once it is deemed students are disregarding said expectations, neighbors are encouraged to contact the Office of Student Engagement or file an online report. At which time, the fraternity and sorority advisor will meet with the leadership of the organization to raise further awareness of the issue and consult on strategies to alleviate the concerns.
  3. In the event of a more immediate concern, the neighbor is encouraged to contact the CSUSB Police Department (UPD) for response. When responding, UPD will issue a report directly to the campus administration that will warrant a meeting with chapter leadership as described in point two. Please note that neighbors should identity when calling UPD that the complaint is regarding a residence with fraternity/sorority members to ensure they are not redirected to San Bernardino Police Department.
  4. Upon continued concerns, the neighbors’ complaints will be reviewed through a community judicial process. This process is advised directly by CSUSB staff and allows for a procedural process of determining corrective actions that will alleviate concerns. The board will make suggestions to the campus administration for final approval and can include a range of sanctions from a warning to recommendation for revocation of campus recognition. All sanctions are designed to be educational as well as punitive when warranted.

In the event that you have concerns or positive feedback, please contact any of the following CSUSB staff that work with our fraternity and sorority community.

Questions weighted "1" and "2" are also important for an online class, but many of the topics they address are things that don't automatically block a student's academic success in the class or can be remedied once the class begins.

Questions that are weighted "3" and "4" in the center column address crucial study skills needed for an online class. The most successful online students will have answered all of those questions in the left-hand column (regardless of what their total score happens to be) or will work to address them over the course of the semester.

A total score of 17 or higher in the right-hand column is a strong indication that you will likely face more challenges than may be desired in an online class.

Virtual Labs provides faculty in STEM disciplines an opportunity to integrate virtual labs (which may be half in-class and half online) into their courses, particularly if there is evidence that the lab is a primary limitation for student success. The use of virtual labs can remove some of the barriers to enrollments, such as the limited availability of laboratory space, equipment and instructional support, allowing more students to successfully complete their science labs in a timely manner.

Campus submission deadline: Feb. 15, 2017

Sustaining Success provides opportunities for campuses to continue/expand work on a prior CRT grant for Proven Course Redesign, Promising Practices, or Virtual Labs. Faculty are provided with resources and opportunities to engage in professional development activities, Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, data analytics/data analysis, and “discipline-based cohort” activities relevant to their project. Previous CRT projects must have been completed and results shown in an ePortfolio. The Sustaining Success proposal must have specific goals to advance that project to another level.

See http://courseredesign.csuprojects.org/wp/sustaining-success/

Campus submission deadline: Apr. 15, 2017 and June 15, 2017

Proven Practices Course Redesign funds faculty to adopt and adapt an already proven strategy of course redesign for already identified system-wide bottleneck classes. CSU “Lead” faculty will share their designs of their course where they have accrued evidence of the strategies’ success for improving student learning with the adopting faculty.

See http://courseredesign.csuprojects.org/wp/proven/

Campus submission deadline: Dec. 1, 2016

Promising Practices is a grant program focused on individual course redesign for courses that qualify as local campus bottlenecks. Although the definition of a campus bottleneck is somewhat vague, it generally pertains to either scheduling bottlenecks or performance bottlenecks (more than 10% in DWFI rates). Faculty accepted into the Promising Practices program receive resources and support to strengthen their course design through the Course Redesign Professional Learning Community and evidence as to their redesign effectiveness. Promising Practices are considered incubators toward future proven redesigns, financed under a separate program.

A quadrivalent meningococcal vaccine is available against four of the most common strains of N. meningitides in the United States (A, C, Y, W135). The vaccine can be used in adults and children older than two years of age and is 85 to 100 percent effective in preventing serogroups A and C of meningitis in older children and adults. The vaccine is often used to control serotype C meningococcal disease outbreaks and for pre-exposure among certain high-risk groups (e.g., immunosuppressed, travelers).

As of October 20, 1999, Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommends that undergraduate college students, particularly freshmen who live in or plan to live in dormitories or residence halls, receive information about meningococcal meningitis and the benefits of vaccination. Freshmen and other undergraduates who wish to reduce their risk for disease should be provided access to the vaccine.

As of January 2011, Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommends that persons aged 21 years or younger should have a dose of meningococcal vaccine not more than 5 years before enrollment. If the primary dose was administered before the 16th birthday, a booster dose should be administered before enrolling in college. The booster dose can be administered anytime after the 16th birthday to ensure that the booster is provided. The minimum interval between doses of meningococcal conjugate vaccine is 8 weeks.

In addition, The Center for Disease Control has recently updated their General Recommendations on Immunization. This information is available from the Center for Disease Control online.

To learn more about meningitis and the vaccine, visit the Student Health Center, or call for an appointment at (909) 537-5241. You can also visit the websites of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the American College Health Association.

Yes. A safe and effective vaccine is available to protect against four of the five most common strains of the disease. The vaccine provides protection for approximately three to five years. As with any vaccine, vaccination against meningitis may not protect 100 percent of all susceptible individuals. Currently, the Student Health Center does offer the meningitis vaccine. Call for an appointment and for current prices.

Certain college students, particularly freshmen who live in dormitories or residence halls, have been found to have an increased risk for meningococcal meningitis. Other undergraduates can also consider vaccination to reduce their risk for the disease.

Symptoms of meningococcal meningitis often resemble the flu and can include high fever, severe headache, stiff neck, rash, nausea, vomiting, lethargy and confusion.

Meningococcal meningitis is spread through the air via respiratory secretions or close contact with an infected person. This can include coughing, sneezing, kissing or sharing items like utensils, cigarettes and drinking glasses.

Meningitis is rare. But when it strikes, this potentially fatal bacterial disease can lead to swelling of fluid surrounding the brain and spinal column as well as severe and permanent disabilities, such as hearing loss, brain damage, seizures, limb amputation and even death. The State of California enacted legislation that requires all students who enroll at the California State University for on-campus housing to be provided information related to meningococcal disease and vaccination.

YES, all students must fulfill this requirement unless they were born before January 1, 1957, have a special medical condition or other exemption. If there are still questions please call for additional information. NOTE: If a student has an exemption and an outbreak situation occurs on campus, please be advised that they will be barred from attending classes for their protection and to protect the campus community.

NOTE: Certain majors may also require Vaccines and/or Immunity regardless of age.

Special clinics along with appointments for immunizations are offered. Please call the Health Center for updated clinic times or to be scheduled for an appointment.

Students may receive a temporary clearance providing time to obtain/find the immunization record. This will allow the student to register for classes. If the hold is not cleared permanently, the hold will be replaced for the following quarter. Please Note: TEMPORARY CLEARANCES ARE ONLY GIVEN ONCE!

You must hand deliver, mail, or fax your immunization records to the Student Health Center. Make sure your Coyote ID# and Date of Birth are on all records! Fax: 909 537 7027.

Students must submit an immunization record stating that they received a Rubella (German measles) and Rubeola (measles) vaccine after 15 months of age and after January 1, 1968. Prior to 1968 the vaccine did not provide adequate immunity.

t's a mandate from the Chancellor's office of California State University implemented to reduce the likelihood of an outbreak of Rubeola and Rubella on CSU campuses. It became effective Fall Quarter, 1986

Hand deliver, mail or fax to 909 537-7027 a copy of your immunization records to the Student Health Center to clear the registration hold. Please include Student ID# and Date of Birth on all documents faxed or mailed.

There is a charge for the Hepatitis B vaccines for students over 18 years of age. Please call the Health Center for updated prices at (909) 537-5241. Students with health insurance are encouraged to call their provider to see if they can get the injections for a lower fee. Students that are under the age of 18 with no insurance should call the Student Health Center for a special fee program. NOTE: Students under the age of 18 will also need Parental Consent (see the forms section to download Consent for Medical Treatment of a minor) in order to receive this vaccine.

There are 3 doses (injections) to complete the series. They are given at zero, one and sixth month intervals.

Students must begin the Hepatitis B series by the end of their first quarter at CSUSB in order to register for subsequent quarters.

As of Fall 2000, any student 18 years or younger are required to provide proof of Hepatitis B immunization.

As a result of state legislation, the Chancellor has issued an executive order requiring all first time enrollees who are 18 years or younger to present proof of immunization against the Hepatitis B virus.
