Transferring to Cal State Long Beach

If you’re interested in one day attending California State University, Long Beach (CSULB), you should be sure to plan ahead and review the requirements for admission at the start of your freshman year in high school. This way, you can make a plan to fulfill your coursework expectations and prepare for ACT and/or SAT testing.

BUT WHAT IF YOU’VE ALREADY BEGUN YOUR COLLEGE CAREER?

The Long Beach College Promise provides students with the opportunity to transfer to CSULB once they have completed their first two years at LBCC.

CSULB transfer applicants will receive “local preference” consideration depending on where they graduated high school.

The CSULB website specifies which high schools fall within the university’s local boundaries. Please note that the location of your transfer institution does not determine whether or not you will be considered a local applicant.

In order to be admitted as a CSULB transfer student, a local CSU-eligible applicant must meet their major-specific minimum cumulative GPA and lower-division preparation requirements. If you are an upper-division transfer student, you should carefully consider your major when submitting your application; alternate majors will not be considered if you do not qualify for your first choice.

Some majors are more space-constrained and have a higher impaction level than others. These highly-impacted majors require applicants to meet additional criteria, and this criteria may differ by major. Review CSULB’s major-specific requirements for transfer students to find out which majors are considered “highly-impacted” and to learn more about the materials you may need to provide with your application. You may also want to contact your major’s specific department for more details.
