All prospective students are required to submit the BSBA Program Application. Submission of the Program Application will allow Extended Learning to provide each prospective student with an educational plan for program acceptance. Each applicant will receive an individualized advising worksheet showing course requirements completed and outstanding requirements that need to be met. Before submitting your application, you will be prompted to pay the non-refundable $55 Application Fee. You should receive an email confirming your application submission and payment.
Note: Should you be offered admission into this program, you will be asked to pay a $150 "intent to enroll" fee upon acceptance. This fee will be credited towards your first semester's fees.
Applications will not be processed until the application fee has been paid and submission of all official transcripts have been received.
Electronic delivery is the preferred transcript delivery method. Verify with your school if an electronic transcript is available. Electronic transcripts can be provided through external or third party vendors (Credential Solutions, eTranscriptCA, National Student Clearinghouse, Parchment, etc.). When ordering your transcript, please choose California State University San Marcos as the intended recipient from the school name dropdown. If California State University San Marcos is not listed, please use firstname.lastname@example.org as the recipient email address.
If you select to mail your transcript, please ensure the transcript is in an envelope
sealed by your school and addressed to:
Office of Admissions & Student Outreach
California State University San Marcos
333 S. Twin Oaks Valley Road
San Marcos, CA 92096-0001
Previous CSUSM students who have not completed coursework at CSUSM in the last year should resend all official transcripts as the originals may have been archived.
For all Extended Learning degree programs, "foreign students" include those who hold U.S. visas as students, exchange visitors, or in other nonimmigrant classifications. You must submit academic records from foreign institutions. The original foreign transcript must be on file. If not in English, the transcripts must have certified English Translations. Transcripts must also be evaluated course-by-course by an approved Foreign Transcript Evaluation agency. Original Foreign transcripts, with English Translations, and the Transcript Evaluation must be submitted to Extended Learning.
International students, please note: With the part-time BSBA program Cal State San Marcos will not be able to sponsor F-1 students as the requirement to be an F-1 is full-time student status. However, the program will still be open to other non-immigrant visa holders who do not need an I-20 document for their status (including H-1 and E-1).
As required by Sections 40752.1, 40802.1, and 41040 of Title 5 of the California Code
of Regulations, campuses of the California State University require that English competence
be established by applicants for admission who have not attended for at least three
years an education institution at the secondary level or beyond where English is the
principal language of instruction. Most frequently, such students document competence
in the English language via results on the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL).
This test (TOEFL) has been and is available in three scoring formats.
Provided below are the CSU minimum scores for each TOEFL total score format:
