If you have taken "O" level examinations, CSUEB requires that five subjects are passed in one sitting or the same year, including Math and English (English as an ESL is not acceptable). Certified copies of "O" level examinations must be sent directly to CSUEB from the testing service or attested by your school; scores sent by the applicant are not official.
If you have taken "A" level and/or "AS" level examinations, CSUEB may award college credit of up to 24 semester units if you pass these exams with a "C-" or higher. CSUEB must receive "A" and "AS" level examination scores directly from the Board of Examinations. Scores sent by you or certified statements of exam results are not acceptable.
If your studies were in the International Baccalaureate (IB) curriculum program, please submit your school transcripts for evaluation. You will be required to complete four years of English and three years of mathematics and earn a passing score of "C-" or higher. For those earning scores of 4 or higher on the IB Higher Level exams, CSUEB may award college credit.
Note: The final transcript evaluation will be done at the time of matriculation. For further information on admission process, please contact international admission office "firstname.lastname@example.org".
