Application Process for Transfer Students

  1. Submit an application to CSU Bakersfield through CSUMentor, the online admissions portal for all CSU schools. A $55 non-refundable application filing fee is required, but fee waivers are available if you qualify.
  2. Request official copies of all of your transcripts be sent directly to the Office of Admissions and Records at CSU Bakersfield by the registrar of any college you previously attended. A final official transcript must also be sent upon completion of any courses in progress. (Please note that all offers of admission are contingent on satisfactory completion of any work in progress between the time of the application and the time of enrollment.)

Check your Admissions Status online at myCSUB regularly for any updates. Once a decision is made, it will be reflected on your account, and you will receive a letter with further information. Be sure to monitor your "To-Do" list regularly even after you have been admitted; there may be additional documents or requirements you will need to submit.

No campus impaction at the Transfer level. Open to all CSU eligible applicants. Program impaction applies to the Nursing Program.
