Returning Student Admission Requirements

Admission requirements depend on the returning student’s academic standing in his or her last semester of attendance at CSUN. Returning students in good standing are not required to meet additional admission criteria. However, students should provide the Office of Admissions and Records with official transcripts of any coursework completed since last attending CSUN. For additional application procedures, see Admissions and Records–Applicants.

Students in good standing who were denied continued enrollment because they did not complete all English and/or mathematics remediation requirements in their first year of CSUN enrollment must complete the CSU GE-Breadth Written Communication requirement (freshman English) and/or remedial math (preferably Intermediate Algebra) at a regionally accredited institution before returning to CSUN. Official transcripts of credits earned for one or both courses are required to be considered for readmission.

Undergraduate students wishing to return after previous disqualification in their last semester at CSUN must demonstrate acquired skills or achievements that support a successful return to the University. Such evidence may include successful completion of courses in their degree program at another institution or through The Tseng College (Extended Learning) with grades that demonstrate the ability to achieve good standing in a reasonable time frame if they are readmitted to CSUN. Students are strongly urged to meet with their CSUN academic advisor to discuss readmission requirements.

Admission procedures for returning students are published at Admissions and Records–Applicants.
