After you Apply

**Please note that these next steps serve as a guide. It is your responsibility to check your Horizon email ( and your MyCSUEB To-do list, regularly for official university notices and updates.

Next Steps

Students may have received an email message from Cal State Apply to update academic information in their applications.  East Bay makes initial admission decisions based on the information originally submitted and does not consider or review the updated information from Cal State Apply.  Please contact if you feel changes in your schedule negatively affect your admission decision.

Cal State East Bay uses self-reported information and a review of partial transcripts with in-progress coursework to determine initial admission eligibility. All initial admission offers are conditional and contingent upon the completion of in-progress coursework and final review of all admission requirements, including evaluation of all official transcripts.  

Most applications meet the conditions of admission but occasionally some may not.

Common reasons are:  

– Official final transcripts that do not reflect the courses and grades indicated on your admission application  

– Failure to complete planned or in-progress courses  listed on your admission application 

– Your cumulative grade point average falling below the required minimum 

Be sure to submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) application as soon as possible at Use the Cal State East Bay School Code 001138 when applying.

Request that your institution send electronic transcripts to accelerate processing time.  Previously opened, scanned transcripts or transcripts emailed directly from students are considered unofficial and cannot be used to fulfill admission requirements and evaluated for transfer credit. Only transcripts sent directly from the institutions or a 3rd party vendor on behalf of the institutions are accepted.

The Office of Admissions does not accept composite transcripts. Courses that appear on one transcript but were taken at another institution are invalid.  Student will need to have transcript sent from that original institution.  

Institutions that can send official transcripts electronically may send them to

Official documents in sealed envelopes can be delivered in-person to the Enrollment Information Center in the Student  Services and Administration building on the Hayward campus or at the Academic Services Center on the Concord campus.  They can also be mailed to:
