CSULB accepting spring transfers

LONG BEACH - Cal State Long Beach is open for applicants who are community college transfer students who wish to begin their upper division studies in the spring 2011 semester.Applications to the university must be made online through CSU Mentor no later than Wednesday, Nov. 10. CSULB's ability to admit students for spring 2011 is due to the partial restoration of funding provided by the recently approved 2010-11 state budget. Because of the short period of time between the recent passage of the state budget and the beginning of spring semester, CSULB has provided unusual flexibility in admission criteria in order to allow more students to enroll for spring. In order to be considered for the spring 2011 semester, prospective transfer students must complete the minimum California State University transfer requirements by the end of the fall 2010 term. A minimum overall college grade point average (GPA) of 2.00 or higher in all transferable college courses (non-California residents must have a minimum GPA of 2.40) is required for admission. Students must complete 60 transferable semester units or 90 quarter units by the end of the fall term, with a minimum 30 semester units or 45 quarter units in courses approved to meet CSU General Education (GE) requirements. By the end of the fall term students must also complete with a grade of "C" or better the CSU GE requirements in written communication, oral communication, critical thinking and mathematics/quantitative reasoning. Complete information on applying for 2011 spring and fall semesters at CSULB is available at www.csulb.edu/depts/enrollment/
