  • An official transcript is required from each college or university attended. Send transcripts directly to Admissions and Records, NOT to Nursing. Additionally, request a copy to be sent directly to you for your personal portfolio.  Transcripts should be ordered at least 4 weeks prior to the respective deadline date, and it is strongly suggested that prior schools send all transcripts directly to you so can forward them to CSUDH Admissions and Records office directly.  Transcripts are “official” as long as they are not opened. .

At any time, you may check your application status by calling 310-243-3645 or via MY CSUDH.  Because the application process takes about six to eight weeks, it is strongly suggested that you check your application status three to four weeks after submission to ensure that your materials are being processed. Contact the University Advising Center at BSNge@csudh.edu should you have questions regarding G.E. courses.  Be sure to indicate that you are a Nursing student, as there are some Nursing courses that count toward G.E. units.
