Step 1: Meet with an Advisor
Before applying, we highly recommended you make an appointment (in-person, by phone or online) with a program advisor. The application requires information from your transcripts, and our advisors can review those to ensure you meet all business course requirements before applying. They can also answer any questions you have about the program or application process.
Step 2: Submit online application
The online application generally takes less than an hour to complete and can be saved anytime. You will need to provide information on previous courses you have taken on the application, so we recommend you have a copy of your unofficial transcripts while completing the application.
While applying, please select the following options:
You will receive a confirmation email after successfully submitting your online application.
Step 3: Submit official transcripts
Fall applicants should submit official transcripts with final fall grades. Spring applicants should submit official transcripts as soon as possible, regardless of course completion. Complete your application by ordering and submitting all official transcripts and official AP scores from all institutions attended directly to the office of Office of Admissions at:
California State University, Fullerton
Office of Admissions
P.O. Box 6900
Fullerton, CA 92834-6900
Step 4: Login to your Student Portal
Once you have submitted your application, you will receive an email with information on setting up your Student Portal and student email address. Login as soon as possible, as you will receive any further admissions instructions only through your Student Portal and student email address.
Step 5: Check your email
You will need to check your email regularly for application status updates, as well as any additional information and instructions.
Step 6: Wait for an admissions decision
After you submit your online application and the Office of Admissions receives your supporting documents, the official review of your application begins. Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis and the processing time may take several weeks. The earlier the official transcripts are received, the earlier an admission decision can be made.
