At this time, Cal State East Bay does not accept applications from students wishing to pursue a second bachelor’s degree. However, second bachelor’s degree applications are accepted for students interested in pursuing Nursing (submit a university application as Undeclared-Interest in Nursing) or the online Business Administration degree completion program administered through Continuing Education.
If you are not admitted to the Nursing B.S. major for Fall, then you will have until the beginning of the next Fall to gain admission to the Nursing B.S. major, or you will not be permitted to continue enrollment at Cal State East Bay. This policy applies up through the Fall 2018 admission cycle. We encourage you to seek academic advising services to ensure that you are completing the necessary coursework to make you eligible for the Nursing major.
Effective Spring 2019, If a student is not admitted directly to the Nursing B.S. major, he or she will not be permitted to continue enrollment at Cal State East Bay.
If you are admitted to the Nursing B.S. major, changing your major is not permitted after being admitted into this discipline by the Nursing Department.
