CSU’s Philosophy of Undergraduate Admission

Access is at the heart of CSU. The university firmly believes - and research demonstrates - that a student body with a broad range of skills, perspectives, life experiences, and identities creates positive outcomes. CSU is committed to a comprehensive, individual review process that can take into consideration a wide range of factors, such as academic course work, rigor, trends and achievement, leadership qualities, school and community service, geographic residence, first generation status, and ability to contribute to a vibrant and diverse campus community. We strive to carefully craft our student body in order to meet our enrollment goals, embody our institutional Land Grant mission, and create a compelling learning environment. No qualified student is turned away from admission to CSU.
