Frequently Asked Questions

Cal State East Bay considers in-progress coursework when making initial admissions decisions. However, all offers are provisional until your final transcripts and degree confirmation are received. This includes a final review to ensure you meet all admission requirements.

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

Here are some common reasons that may affect your admissibility:  

  • Missing Documents: Deadlines matter! Ensure you submit all required documents, like transcripts, by the specified dates. 
  • Academic Requirements Not Met: For graduate programs, fulfilling specific criteria is crucial. This includes completing the courses you listed in your application and providing a degree transcript by the deadline.
  • Falling GPA: Maintaining a strong academic record is key. Make sure your cumulative GPA remains above the minimum requirement throughout the application process.
  • Not Maintaining Good Academic Standing: If you left the last institution you attended in less than Good Academic Standing, our office reserves the right to withdraw your application.

Incoming Graduates must submit all final, official transcripts from all colleges or universities attended. Transcripts with final grades for all courses must be submitted to clear any admission conditions (holds) and maintain your eligibility to enroll. If a degree is in progress, please make sure that the degree is recorded on your transcript prior to submitting your transcript to our campus.

Please refer to the Graduate student application and document deadlines page for final transcript deadlines.

The University requires applicants to submit official final transcripts from all colleges and universities attended be sent to Cal State East Bay’s Office of Admissions. This includes all institutions before and after your bachelor’s degree. The Office of Admissions does not accept composite transcripts.  Courses that appear on one transcript but taken at another institution will need to have transcript sent from that original institution.
