Fall 2019: Application to the Traditional BSN Program is a 2-part application process (fall admissions only)

STEP 1: Apply to CSUB October 1st to November 30th

Transfer Applicants

With nursing being an impacted program, applicants must file an application for admissions during the initial filing period of  October 1st to November 30th through CSU Apply for fall 2019. This is required prior to submitting a supplemental nursing application (step 2). Transfers must meet upper division transfer requirements for university admissions. Upper Division  transfer requirements can be viewed here.

Second Bachelor's

Students seeking a potential second bachelor's degree must also complete a CSU Apply application by deadline of Nov. 30th.  Important: Be sure to indicate in your online application that you are seeking a “Second Bachelor’s Degree” in order to locate the program in Cal State Apply.

Upon applying through Cal State Apply, submit the following to the CSUB Office of Admissions and Records:

Official Transcripts: Official transcripts from all colleges attended required. Deadline to submit initial transcripts is February 15th and must show fall 2018 semester and Spring 2019 in progress.

Official Test Scores: Official test score verifying college credit (AP or IB credit if applicable)

Other Requirements: Any necessary documentation or paperwork related towards your academic records, residency, and/or requested items made by Admissions.

For details, please visit Application Process for Transfer Students (undergraduate) or Application Process for Post-Baccalaureate (seeking 2nd bachelor's degree).

Current CSUB Students

Current CSUB students do not need to submit a Cal State Apply application unless if they have been inactive with the university for at least two or more semesters. Returning CSUB students will need to re-apply for admission through Cal State Apply during the initial application filing period.

STEP 2: Supplemental Program Application October 1st to February 15th

A Supplemental BSN application is required for both continuing CSUB students,  transfer students, and second baccalaureate students through NursingCAS. NursingCAS is a centralized application system in partnership with participating schools with processing applications and verification of transcripts.  

It is highly recommended that you begin your NursingCAS application earlier within the application period. Incomplete and late applications will not be accepted.

Complete the following application materials and requirements to be submitted through NursingCAS:

Official Transcripts: All applicants are required to submit official transcripts from all colleges attended to NursingCAS (even if you are enrolled at CSUB). Fall 2018 grades must be posted prior to sending official transcripts. In progress courses can only be for the spring 2019 semester. Due in NursingCAS by February 15th.

Coursework: Prerequisites must be complete no later than the deadline of May 28, 2019.

Documents: Verification letters/forms (if applicable) for: active or military veteran, paid licensed health care experience, and previous RN program enrollment.
