The Graduate Studies Office uses email as the official means of communication; applicants are required to maintain a current email address on file and check their email regularly. Please be sure to inform the Graduate Studies Office at of any changes in your email address and/or telephone number.  You may also check the status of your admission application by visiting the Applicant Self-Service webpage (please note that the Applicant Self-Service will be available to you a few days after you complete the Cal State Apply application).



The Admissions Committee will review all completed applications after the deadline. You will be notified by email regarding the status of your application approximately four weeks after the deadline. The program advisor may contact you with questions about your application.


Candidates who are invited for admission will be invited to a mandatory orientation meeting with the program coordinator. During orientation, a program plan will be developed and you will be advised as to the appropriate sequence of classes. It is important that students attend carefully to the advised sequence of classes as course offerings are limited in the Master’s program. Many required courses are offered only one semester each year.
