After You're Admitted

Next steps for the freshman admission process

  1. Send your official ACT/SAT test scores to the Office of Admissions and Outreach. Scores must be received by January 31.

  2. Complete all applicable admission requirements by the end of your senior year. All CSU subject matter requirements (the 15-unit A-G approved course pattern) must be completed, in progress, or planned to be completed with a C grade or better before high school graduation. These requirements may not be completed during the summer term immediately preceding fall enrollment.

  3. Do not send any information to the Office of Admissions and Outreach unless it is requested on your To Do List on BroncoDirect to avoid a delay in processing your application.
