University Application

CSULB Admission:  Prospective students should first apply to CSULB in order to obtain a registration date to register for the Program Prerequisite courses. Students that are current CSULB students that will be receiving a bachelors or masters degree at the end of the current semester must reapply to the university to continue as a credential student. ITEP Students do not need to reapply to the university.
