Planning for College

Encourage students to research college and university admission requirements. Find out what grades they'll need to be eligible for the college of their choice and if the college has any entrance exams. This information can be found by visiting the links below.



Planning and preparing is only part of getting into college. Applying online is fast and easy. The CSULB application filing period is October 1 – November 30 for the following fall. Students cannot apply early to CSULB; however, when they complete the CSU Mentor High-School Planner, the information is transferred to their online application.
