Local Preference Admission Consideration

determines which first-time, first-year and transfer applicants will receive “local preference” for admission consideration based on their high school ofgraduation. The same geographic boundaries that have been historically used to determine local area high schools for freshmen remain in place. These are used to determine local preference for incoming transfers as well. As part of our commitment to provide access to veterans, gives local preferenceto all military veterans, regardless of their school of origin.

In addition, grants local preferenceto all students from alternative high schools if their primary residence where they are educated is located within the current boundaries of ’s local area.

Applicants who are considered localbased on their high school of graduation or military status who meet the minimum eligibility requirements but are not admissible to the major will be offered admission as an undeclaredstudent. Undeclared students will explore other appropriate majors through coursework and advising and must meet the major-specific criteria for the major prior to declaring a major by their junior year. Applicants should note that undeclaredis not a route to their initial intended major. Undeclared students work with university advisors to identify and succeed in alternate majors.

Transfer Applicants are considered localbased on their high school of graduation, not their transfer institutions. Additionally, extends localpreference to military veterans. Except for highly impacted majors, CSU-eligible applicants who are considered localwill be offered admission if they meet the major-specific minimum cumulative GPA and required lower-division preparation.
