Where can I find the separate application for Graduate Programs?
Some of these programs will require that you submit a set of transcripts to the academic department in addition to the transcripts that you must submit to the Office of Admissions and Recruitment. To avoid unnecessary delays in the evaluation of your application, please make sure that you request two (2) sets of transcripts—
One set should be sent to the Office of University Admissions:
CSU, Los Angeles
A second set should be sent to the academic department:
CSU, Los Angeles
Please check the appropriate website for information about application deadlines and how to obtain the application forms from the academic departments.
