Important information for first year, transfer & prospective students:

All students applying to the business administration program at California State University San Marcos are initially classified as Pre-Business Status.

As students complete their First Year Student/Sophomore course sequences, including the Pre-Business Core, they will work with the CoBA advisors. Upon successful completion of the Pre-Business Core, a student will be changed to Business Status so they can register for upper-division business courses.

Transfer Students may submit a Business Status Application to the Advising Office at the time of application to CSUSM to be considered for Business Status. 

Please note: The Business Administration program is an Impacted Major. Impaction is a designation that allows a program to limit its enrollments to align with its budget. This means that students must complete the lower-division Pre-Business Core with a 2.5 GPA or higher to be admitted into the business program.

Here are some important checklists to help guide you through the process:
