How to Apply

To apply for admission as a transfer student, complete the following items by the deadlines for the semester to which you are applying.

  • Submit an application for admission online via Cal State Apply and pay the $70 nonrefundable application fee. Be sure to print the application submission confirmation page for your records.
  • Request official final transcripts from all colleges and universities attended to be sent to Cal State East Bay. Official transcripts must be received by the published admission document deadlines. Transcripts will be accepted if submitted electronically or mailed directly by the college or university, or if hand-carried in their original sealed envelope to Cal State East Bay's Enrollment Information Center on the First Floor of the Student Services and Administration (SA) Building on the Hayward Campus, or to the Academic Services Center on the Concord Campus.

Before you begin, have the following items on hand:

  • Unofficial transcripts. You’ll be asked to enter all courses you’ve completed, those currently in progress, and any you plan to take
  • Your Social Security number, if you have one
  • Your Citizenship Status
  • Application fees are due at time of submission and are paid by credit card
  • Annual income of your parents if you are a dependent, your income if you are independent
  • CCCID and Campus ID Required for ADT applicants from a California community college. These numbers should be printed on your transcript
  • Your parent’s employment background and two recommendations (applies only if you are applying to the Educational Opportunity Program or EOP).
