Cal State LA has a long history of commitment to access, the local community, and social upward mobility. Except for Pre-Nursing, CSU eligible applicants who do not meet the ranking GPA for Cal State LA admission, but have at least a 2.00 GPA (or 2.47 GPA for non-CA residents and graduates of non-CA high schools), may be evaluated for admission based on Multi-Factor Review Process (MFRP), using information reported in the Cal State Apply application.
Applicants who go through the MFRP will be ranked by their Multi-Factor Admission Score (MFAS), and may be offered admission based on remaining space availability in the major or college.
