Admission to CSULB
CSULB’s core academic purpose is to graduate students with highly valued degrees. Our faculty and staff are dedicated to fostering student success both in and out of the classroom. We encourage prospective students to find out more about our campus to see if CSULB is the right choice for them.
The Office of University Outreach and School Relations is the primary student recruitment and guest relations office for the university. It disseminates information on the CSU and CSULB Admissions and financial aid policies and procedures; on CSULB’s academic programs; and on student services to prospective students and counselors from high schools and community colleges in the CSULB service area and surrounding communities.
A major focus of University Outreach and School Relations is the implementation of outreach and recruitment programs and services to reach a diverse pool of talented high school and transfer students for whom CSULB is their “University of Choice.” The Office, under the direction of the President, is also responsible for recruitment of President’s Scholars (California valedictorians and National Merit Finalists and Semi-Finalists).
University Outreach and School Relations offers guided campus tours by appointment. Those interested in visiting the campus should call (562) 985-5358. Specialized campus visits for K-12 students, parents, counselors and other interested groups may also be arranged.
In addition, the office administers pre-admissions and application workshops for prospective freshmen and transfer students; the Young Scholars Programs for qualified high school students; the Early Assessment Program (EAP); admission services for adult re-entry students; and educational awareness and academic enrichment services for elementary and middle school students.
The Office of University Outreach and School Relations is located in Brotman Hall, Room 289. For more information, visit the UOSR website at www.csulb.edu/outreach.
