How to Apply

Thank you for your interest in applying to Cal State East Bay!

International Applicants are strongly encouraged to apply as early in the application period as possible. Once the applicant has been admitted and an I-20 has been issued, it can take several weeks to obtain a visa. 

Below you will find useful information to guide you through the application process.

Tip:  Check out these videos in our video gallery!   

Steps to Apply:

Step 1: Submit an application online via Cal State Apply along with a non-refundable application fee of $70.00. Be sure to retain a copy of the confirmation page for your records.

Step 2: Every applicant is given a personal CSUEB identification number called a Net ID.  This information will be provided to each applicant in an email. In order to submit supporting documents required to complete your application, you will be required to enter your Net ID. 

Step 3: To evaluate your application, you will first need to provide unofficial transcripts and test scores (we will use unofficial transcripts during the initial review, with the exception of U.S. transcripts, which must be submitted as official).  Please note: If you have submitted your academic records in the last year, please email for further assistance. Next, prepare your transcripts from all institutions attended and all applicable test scores in a digital format (pdf, jpeg or png) and submit via our documents form link. The link will be sent via email.

Note:  If an offer of admission is extended, a notification will be sent on how to submit all required official transcripts and test scores.

Step 4: Please review your Personal To Do List and Application Status on the MyCSUEB student portal. You can access the link to check your application status under the applicant tab and underneath the heading Admissions.
