Prepare for CSU Admission Early

Posted by Shannon Banks

Many students don’t know they can start preparing for CSU admission as early as middle school. When the CSU looks at admission criteria, they’re looking to see that students met the a-g requirements. Students can start taking these courses as early as 7th grade.

In high school, meet with your counselor to discuss how you will meet the a-g requirements. You’ll also want to take the SAT and/or ACT multiple times because CSU campuses will only use your best scores when evaluating you for admission to their school.

In addition to the a-g requirements, each of the 23 CSU campuses may have supplemental criteria that you will need to meet if the campus is impacted, or the number of fully qualified applicants exceeds the number of available spaces. Be sure to contact each CSU you are interested in individually to ensure that you are meeting all of the requirements for their specific campus.

Overall, increasing your preparedness for a CSU will increase the probability of you being admitted. If you start getting ready for the admissions process early, it will be less stress on you when you’re anticipating admission decisions.

You + Leadership = Life-Changing Community Engagement

Posted by Kiera Sailor

This summer, I had the wonderful experience of giving back to my campus as an Orientation Leader. As I helped new students integrate smoothly at CSU Channel Islands (CI), serving as a mentor and friend to show them the CI way, each orientation challenged me to become a better woman, mentor and individual. College is a time to be a pearl; let your edges be rolled, layered and polished. So go for it. You have a campus full of leaders cheering you on!

Productivity with Some Fun Along the Way

Posted by Kyle Barras

Your college years will by far be some of the most memorable years of your life. But how can you be expected to graduate in four years, while building a resume, interning, working, going to school and still having fun along the way? You must be creative with your time. Utilize every moment that you are doing something fun as a time to be productive. For example, you may hang out with your friends and study or review your lecture notes. When you have a group project in class, don’t just do the project; make meaningful connections with your peers as you do it. Get to know them, what their major is, what their aspirations are, and more. Networking doesn’t necessarily need to occur in a professional office setting.
