Your Admission Status
Admission decisions are typically made 8 to 12 weeks after all application materials are received. Please allow two weeks for the receipt of transcripts and test scores to be recorded under your application status. If you've already applied to the University, be sure to check your admission status in MyCSUEB.

Licensure and credentialing requirements
Admission into programs leading to licensure and credentialing does not guarantee that students will obtain a license or credential. Licensure and credentialing requirements are set by agencies that are not controlled by or affiliated with the CSU and requirements can change at any time. For example, licensure or credentialing requirements can include evidence of the right to work in the United States (e.g., social security number or tax payer identification number) or successfully passing a criminal background check. Students are responsible for determining whether they can meet licensure or credentialing requirements. The CSU will not refund tuition, fees, or any associated costs, to students who determine subsequent to admission that they cannot meet licensure or credentialing requirements.
