Unofficial transcripts are to be uploaded at the time of application and official final transcripts must be submitted prior to enrollment. If you received your bachelor's degree from Cal Poly Pomona, you do not need to send official transcripts.

  • Make sure to have the correct social security number as entering it incorrectly can impact your financial aid.
  • Double-check that your name and date of birth are also entered correctly.
  • Use an e-mail address that you will continue to be able to access. School e-mails are not recommended

Applicants are encouraged to review the Graduate Application Guide (PDF) when completing the Cal State Apply application.
