Fall 2010 Admission

Fall 2011 Admission Process

First-time freshmen applicants are admitted to the pre-major (including undeclared) in which they apply.

There is a limited number of enrollment slots in each pre-major.

Applicants will be ranked by their Eligibility Index, which is a combination of GPA and SAT/ACT test scores.

Students must complete the pattern of college preparatory curriculum ("a-g" courses) by the end of spring 2011.

First-time freshmen from outside the SDSU service area are required to live in on-campus residence halls their first year.

Students are in SDSU's service area if they graduate from a high school in San Diego County located south of state route 56 and extending eastward AND Imperial County high schools.


Fall 2011 Admission Process

CSU Grade Point Average

All grades earned in the 15-unit college “a-g” preparatory pattern of approved courses taken in 10th -12th grades are used to calculate your grade point average.

Honors points for “A,” “B” and “C” grades will be awarded for a maximum of eight semester courses taken in 11th and 12th grades, including up to two IB or AP courses, or honors courses with 11th or 12th grade content taken in the 10th grade.


Fall 2011 Admission Process

First-Time Freshmen Eligibility Index

The Eligibility Index is the combination of the high school grade point average and test score on either the SAT Reasoning Test or the ACT.

The Eligibility Indexis calculated by multiplying the grade point average by 800 and adding the combined critical reading and math score on the SAT Reasoning Test.

For the ACT, multiply the grade point average by 200 and add ten times the composite score from the ACT.

SDSU does not include the writing scores from either tests in the computation of the Eligibility Index.


Fall 2011 Admission Process

Fall admission is based on self-reported information and the major to which students apply.

Students cannot change their major during the application process.

Admission is provisional pending verification of the self-reported information on the application from official transcripts.

Admission will be rescinded if the GPA, test scores or course grades are lower than what is reported on the application.

Students must receive "C" or higher grades in all coursework taken during senior year or their admission will be rescinded.


Fall 2011 Admission

Communication Process

Applicants receive the following notifications.

E-mail from SDSU within two weeks after CSUMentor application is filed. This e-mail contains their SDSU RedID that students will use to set up their SDSU WebPortal.

Students can check the status of their application in the “Admission Status” section of the SDSU WebPortal.

Applicants are encouraged to read the SDSU “I Have Applied” Web site for “next steps” in the admission process.

Admission and denial notifications – along with enrollment instructions – will be sent via hard copy letter in March.
