The following are common forms used by the LSAMP program:
New LSAMP Application Form
Initiated in 1993-1994, CSU-LSAMP is an alliance of the 23 campuses of the California State University (CSU) system which supports a coordinated and comprehensive system-wide approach to broadening participation in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) disciplines.
Each of the CSU campuses has a CSU-LSAMP program that offers an array of activities and services designed to improve retention and graduation of undergraduate students in STEM. In addition, CSU-LSAMP seeks to increase the number of CSU-LSAMP students who enter STEM graduate programs or the STEM workforce.
To be eligible to participate in CSU-LSAMP, students must:
· Be a U.S. Citizen or Permanent Resident.
· Be enrolled at a participating campus in an undergraduate major in a STEM discipline or have expressed an interest in pursuing a STEM baccalaureate degree.
· Be an individual who has faced or faces social, educational, or economic barriers to careers in STEM.
· Each CSU-LSAMP campus program may have additional eligibility requirements. Please see the Campus Coordinator.
Please follow the instructions accompanying the New LSAMP Application Form exactly. Submit all required application components to the LSAMP office (ASCB 360) during the posted office hours. Please click the appropriate links below to obtain the instructions and application form. Application materials for NEW LSAMP students become available around September 1st of each year.
Continuing LSAMP Application Form
Applications are accepted year round, but to be eligible for any LSAMP components including Early Registration, a valid NEW or CONTINUING STUDENT application must be on file and approved for the year in question. Each year runs September 1 through August 31 (e.g., current year is September 1, 2020 through August 31, 2021.)
Since you already completed the new student LSAMP application form (in fall 2013 or later), you no longer need to fill one out again. Instead, just take the time to update information and update your “MY PLANNER,” available in GET. Each year you remain an undergraduate student enrolled in a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, or Mathematics) major and continue to work on your first bachelor’s degree, we will request that you complete updated information if you wish to continue as an ACTIVE LSAMP participant. You may bring the completed "My Planner" to the LSAMP office (ASC Rosser – Room 360) or you may email all required documents to [email protected].
Early Registration Form
The Early Registration Request deadline for each fall and spring term is provided on the main homepage.
Beginning Spring Semester, 2017 and all later terms, for early registration requests, students must have completed 3 seminar evaluations before the Request deadline (or a total of 6 seminar evaluations per program year, September 1 through August 31, to be eligible for both FALL and SPRING early registration. Make sure that you have submitted the -seminar evaluations to the LSAMP office (ASC-Rosser 360) within an hour after each seminar has ended. Also you need to provide a copy of your grades for the last term completed and what courses you plan to register in for the specific term you are requesting Early Registration. These items should be submitted or emailed ([email protected]) to the LSAMP Office in addition to providing documentation of participation in at least one LSAMP activity during the prior academic term with the early registration form located below before the deadline.
