Beach Pledge

Beach Pledge Program

California State University (CSULB) has long been committed to providing entering first-time students the tools and support to graduate in a timely manner. The California Promise Program (Senate Bill 412) enables CSULB to establish the Beach Pledge Program which provides an opportunity for entering first-time students who are both interested and able to complete their baccalaureate degrees in four years. In addition, students who have been accepted in a Fall Semester with an Associate Degree for Transfer (AD-T) [in accordance with SB 1440 – The Student Transfer Achievement (STAR) Act] from a sister California Community College, may complete their baccalaureate degrees in two years.  The program is limited to students who are residents of California

All Beach Pledge Program (California Promise) students will receive:

  • Priority Registration (Given by Class Standing [e.g. Beach Pledge Seniors, Remaining Seniors, Beach Pledge Juniors, Remaining Juniors, Beach Pledge Sophomores, Remaining Sophomores, Beach Pledge Freshmen, Remaining Freshmen])
  • Guaranteed Course Availability
  • Specialized Advising Each Semester to Ensure Students Stay on Track with a Personalized Academic Plan
