Application & Admission

We want to make your transition to Cal State San Marcos a smooth one. In Stage I, we will help guide you through what happens after you submit your application and what to do after you have received your formal offer of admission.

Check Your Application Status

The Evaluation Process

  • Once we receive your application and all official documents we will begin the evaluation process. Evaluators go through your prior coursework to check for prerequistes, GPA and other admission criteria.  For undergraduate programs, a copy of your academic evaluation will be emailed to you. This typically takes 4-6 weeks from the time we receive all of your documents.
  • If faculty review is required as part of the process, your academic evaluation and supplemental documents will then be forwarded to faculty for final review.
  • Once your review is complete an admission decision will be made and you will be notified via email. 

Please note: ABSN students follow a slightly different process.
