As a redirected applicant, you will be conditionally admitted to Cal State East Bay based on self-reported information when you previously applied to our sister CSU campus.  This information, however, has not been verified and you MUST submit official transcripts to verify your eligibility before you can register for classes at Cal State East Bay no later than 5/15/2021.  Fall 2021 registration starts mid-April so the earlier your transcripts are received, the earlier your hold will be cleared in order to register for classes.
