General Admissions

Entrance Requirements and Recommendations

Requirements

The following information describes the indexes used in determining freshmen admission. For information on how these are used in the process, see Freshmen Application and Admission.
Eligibility Index

The “Eligibility Index” is the result of a formula that combines your achievement in high school college preparatory courses with the results of the SAT I or ACT. The “Eligibility Index” is used throughout the CSU system to establish basic eligibility. The formula places the greatest weight on the high school grades.

The “Eligibility Index” for CSULB ranking is calculated as follows:

(College Preparatory Grade Point Average* X 800) + SAT Critical Reading + SAT Math

*Refer to the “College Preparatory Grade Point Average” section below for details on how this GPA is calculated.

Note that the SAT Writing score is not used for admission purposes. The highest individual Math and Critical Reading score are used if the SAT has been taken more than once. For applicants that take the ACT assessment, the ACT composite will be converted to an SAT total replacing both the Critical Reading and Math scores for this calculation. For applicants that take both the SAT and the ACT, the higher resulting index will be used in the admission process.

STEM Eligibility Index

The “STEM Eligibility Index” is the result of a formula that also combines your achievement in high school college preparatory courses with the results of the SAT I or ACT. The “STEM Eligibility Index” is used by CSULB for admission to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) majors. The formula places the greatest weight on the high school grades. This index places additional weight on quantitative skills required for success in these majors.

The “STEM Eligibility Index” for CSULB ranking in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) majors is calculated as follows:

(College Preparatory Grade Point Average* X 600) + SAT Critical Reading + (2 X SAT Math)

*Refer to the “College Preparatory Grade Point Average” section below for details on how this GPA is calculated.

Note that the SAT Writing score is not used for admission purposes. The highest individual Math and Critical Reading score are used if the SAT has been taken more than once. For applicants that take the ACT assessment, the ACT composite and Math scores will be converted to replace both the Critical Reading and Math scores for this calculation. For applicants that take both the SAT and the ACT, the higher resulting index will be used in the admission process.

College Preparatory Grade Point Average

The GPA’s listed above are calculated based on grades earned in all approved college preparatory (A-G) courses taken after grade 9. Bonus points may be awarded for up to eight grades of C or better in approved honors courses taken in grades 10 to 12, including up to two (2) International Baccalaureate (IB) or Advanced Placement (AP), or honors courses taken in tenth grade.

BE AWARE: Initial admission decisions are based on self-reported information provided in the admission application. As a result they are based on the grades earned as of that time (normally the 10th and 11th grade). All offers of admission will be provisional and subject to verification based on official final high school transcripts. Admission offers may be withdrawn if the final GPA, completed courses, or course grades are lower than what is reported at the time of application. It is essential that senior year courses be completed successfully!

Recommendations

GRE scores are required for most M.S. programs.
Recommendation letters and GRE scores are required for the Ph.D. program.

Undergraduate

Admissions/Transfers

Undergraduate Admission to the College of Engineering

Since the Fall 2013 admission cycle, all CSULB undergraduate majors become "impacted." As a result, all majors will have major specific admission and declaration requirements.

Undergraduate Admission to an Engineering Department

As part of the campus-wide new admission criteria, the College of Engineering will have specific admission criteria. Students who meet the minimum requirements for the major, including a STEM "Eligibility Index," will be automatically declared into the major. Admission to STEM majors will be to a ‘pre-major’ status. Continuation in the major will be subject to meeting specific lower division course and GPA requirements at CSULB that indicate the student’s ability to succeed and complete the major.

Entrance Requirements for Foreign Students

Subject requirements are the same as resident students, with some exceptions. Foreign students are required to submit TOEFL scores and take an entrance English exam upon matriculation.

Entrance Requirements for Non-Resident Students

Subject requirements are the same as resident students; however, eligibility index (for first-time freshmen) and admission GPA (for transfer students) are slightly higher.

Residency Requirements

See current University Catalog at http://www.csulb.edu/divisions/aa/catalog/

Admissions Requirements for Transfer Students

See current University Catalog at http://www.csulb.edu/divisions/aa/catalog/

Number of Transfer Students from:

A two-year community junior college where they were full-time students: 370
A four-year college or university where they were full-time students: 44

The following text was offered to each school as a guideline for the calculation of externally-funded research expenditures:

Include all expenditures associated with grants and contracts specifically budgeted for externally sponsored research and associated programs and expenditures associated with all gifts auditably used for research. Include expended funds provided by the following external sources:

  1. Federal Government
  2. State Government
  3. Foreign Governments
  4. Industry
  5. Non-Profit Organizations (e.g. foundations)
  6. Individuals
  7. Local Government

The expenditures reported should be only those funds provided by organizations, agencies, and individuals external to the institution. Cost sharing/matching funds should be included only if provided from sources external to the institution.

Only State government funds that were obtained competitively or as matching funds associated with other externally funded programs should be included. State funds that are part of the normal operating budget should not be included regardless of purpose.

For all joint or contracted projects or sub-projects, only the portion of the center research performed by faculty, staff, and students of the affiliated engineering school should be credited to that school. Expenditures for capital costs of research laboratory building construction should not be included.

Expenditures for research laboratory renovations should not be included unless the renovation funds expended came from grants and contracts expressly intended for the direct support of engineering research.

Any portion of academic year and/or summer salary for any researcher that is not derived from external research grants or contracts should not be counted.

Total #: Report total number of individual grants, not the total dollar amount of the expenditures.

Expenditures: Report actual expenditures (as opposed to authorization amounts) in U.S. dollars.

Time frame for expenditures: Report expenditures for your current fiscal year.

Research centers listed as "WITHIN an engineering department" on the Research Centers page (screen 7) of the College of Engineering Profile, will not have their expenditures added to the school's total research expenditures. Such expenditures can be included in the department total, while still being listed for the appropriate center. This allows users to list the expenditures in two areas without double-counting.
