New Transfer Admits

Congratulations on your admission to Cal State LA, and welcome to the Golden Eagle family!

To ensure a smooth transition to the University, please make sure you meet all of the following:

MyCalStateLA Portal

It is your responsibility to regularly check your Cal State LA email account, and to monitor and meet any deadlines posted on your GET Self-Service Student Center To Do List. Failure to frequently check your email and GET may result in missed deadlines, and the cancellation of your admission. You may also update your contact information in the GET portal. Learn how to access email and GET via the myCalStateLA portal.

Provisional Admission

If your offer of admission is “provisional,” it means that it was based on the review of the self-reported information listed in your CSU Mentor Application. Final admission eligibility will be determined using the coursework listed in your official, final transcript(s) (and, if applicable, your test scores). Please plan to submit your final academic records by the term's final transcript/test score deadline. After final academic records are reviewed, you will receive an email sharing that your admission has been finalized. If you enroll in classes prior to the finalized admission notification email, your admission may still be rescinded/cancelled if it is determined that you do not meet admission requirements.

Transfer (and Second Baccalaureate) Admissions Eligibility Requirements

To qualify for final admission, you must meet the upper division transfer admission requirements by the end of the last qualifying coursework term for your admit term. For more information, visit admission requirements.

Enrollment Confirmation Deposit (ECD)

To accept the offer of admission, a non-refundable, non-transferable Enrollment Confirmation Deposit (ECD) of $100 (USD) is required of all newly admitted/returning undergraduate students who plan to enroll at Cal State LA. The deposit will be applied to your first term’s tuition and fees. You may submit the ECD as soon as you receive the official notification of admission. To confirm your planned enrollment at the University, please submit the ECD by no later than the date indicated on your offer of admission notification. For information about how to submit the ECD, visit the Enrollment Confirmation Deposit webpage.

Golden Eagle Orientation and Group Advisement

Please expect to receive information about Golden Eagle Orientation and Group Academic Advisement after you submit the Enrollment Confirmation Deposit for your admit term. For the fall admission terms, this information is usually available beginning in May. If you have any questions, please contact the Golden Eagle Orientation Program at (323) 343-3195,, or visit the Golden Eagle Orientation webpage.

Transcripts (and if applicable, Test Scores (AP, IB, CLEP, etc.))

If you have not done so already for this application term, please submit official, final transcripts from each and every college/university attended (and, if applicable, official test scores), by the date indicated on your offer of admission notification. To be considered final, the transcript must include courses/grades completed through the last qualifying term for admissions consideration for your admit term. We require an official transcript from every institution attended, regardless if an institution's courses are also reported on another institution's transcript.
If you are no longer taking courses at a particular institution, please submit an official transcript from that school after you submit the Enrollment Confirmation Deposit. You do not have to wait until the final transcript deadline; documents can be submitted earlier. (NOTE: If you take college courses in the term immediately prior to enrolling at Cal State LA (i.e., during the summer before fall enrollment at Cal State LA), you must submit another set of final transcript(s) with grades posted, by the supplemental transcript deadline.)
To expedite the transfer credit process, if your institution offers electronic transcripts, please request for your academic record to be sent electronically to Cal State LA. We currently accept transcripts via eTranscript CA and Parchment.
For more information about official academic records and how to submit requested documents/test scores. To view received or missing documents, please visit your GET Self-Service Student Center To Do List via your myCalStateLA portal.

Admissions/Enrollment Deadlines

Please regularly review your offer of admission notification for your specific deadlines.  For more information, visit deadlines.

Failure to meet the above terms, deadlines, and other requirements, will result in the cancellation of the offer of admission, or disqualify you from enrolling in the University for the admitted term. There are no exceptions to these requirements, and enrollment may not be deferred to a future term.

The CSU makes every effort to keep student costs to a minimum. Fees listed in published schedules or student accounts may need to be increased when public funding is inadequate. Therefore, CSU must reserve the right, even after fees are initially charged or initial fee payments are made, to increase or modify any listed fees. All listed fees, other than mandatory systemwide fees, are subject to change without notice, until the date when instruction for a particular semester or quarter has begun. All CSU listed fees should be regarded as estimates that are subject to change upon approval by the Board of Trustees, the Chancellor, or the Presidents, as appropriate. Changes in mandatory systemwide fees will be made in accordance with the requirements of the Working Families Student Fee Transparency and Accountability Act (Sections 66028 - 66028.6 of the Education Code).
