What's the profile like for students admitted to CSULB as transfers?

CSULB is one of the schools I'm looking at for transferring, and I'm trying to gauge if I'd be a good fit. What academic or extracurricular background do accepted transfer students typically have?

8 months ago

Transfer admissions at CSULB (California State University, Long Beach) consider a range of factors, but the primary focus is on your academic performance at the college level. Priority is given to students coming from California community colleges, and typically a minimum GPA of 2.0 is required, though most admitted students have a GPA north of 2.5. Admission can be more competitive for non-local students or certain majors, where the GPA threshold might be higher. Additionally, completion of major-specific prerequisite coursework is crucial, and the better aligned your completed courses are with CSULB's requirements, the higher your chances of admission. Extracurricular activities are considered but are less critical than your academic achievements. Focus on strengthening your college GPA and ensuring your courses match up with CSULB’s transfer paths.
