A $15 late fee will be assessed if the completed Admissions application and ALL transcripts are not received PRIOR to deadline date.  Applications will not be reviewed until ALL transcripts have been submitted.

  1. 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 and for use your advisor in developing a Program of Study.  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.
  2. Submit a copy of your R.N. License directly to the Nursing department via mail or you may fax it to 310-516-3542.

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.  If you are admitted to the University, you will receive a transcript summary of your General Education courses along with your acceptance letter.  This summary is necessary for the BSN 302 course required during your first semester.  Contact the University Advising Center at 310-243-3538 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.
