First-Time, First-Year Student CSULB Index

Your CSULB Index for Fall is calculated using your cumulative grade point average (GPA), Math GPA, and English GPA. The score will help tell you if you’re eligible for admission to the CSU. The CSU does not use standardized testing (SAT and/or ACT) for purposes of admission. Students may submit their official SAT and/or ACT should they be offered admission to be used for placement purposes, but the standardized tests will not be considered in the admission decision.
