Change of Graduate Objective

Continuing students may apply for a Change of Graduate Objective ONE TIME after their first term of attendance if they are in one of the following academic categories:

  • You are a continuing CSUEB post-baccalaureate student who wishes to change your degree or credential program.
  • You are a CSUEB credential graduate or master’s graduate who wishes to continue into a new credential/master's degree program the following term.
  • You are a continuing student requesting to add a second master's program (dual master’s request).

Prior to submitting this request, you must consult with your prospective academic program regarding departmental application deadlines, terms of entry, and supporting documents which may be required for admission consideration.

The timeline for a Change of Graduate Objective application is as follows:
