I Have Been Admitted


Congratulations on your admission to California State University, Dominguez Hills for Fall 2022! We cannot wait to see all the amazing things you’ll accomplish as a Toro. We are here to help you and if you have any questions, please admissions@csudh.edu, call 310-243-3645, or schedule a one-on-one appointment with a counselor.

STEP 1: Access MyCSUDH, your Student Account

Login to your student account at My.CSUDH.edu and check your To Do List . 

STEP 2: Activate ToroMail

Avoid missing important information by checking ToroMail, your official CSUDH email account. All official communications pertaining to your Financial Aid offer, New Student Orientation, and more are sent to ToroMail.

To set-up and check your email, please visit mail.toromail.csudh.edu and enter your CSUDH username and password. This is the same login information that you used to access MyCSUDH, your student portal.

STEP 3: Apply for Financial Aid, Deadline: March 2, 2022

If you have not yet applied, submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at studentaid.gov or the California Dream Act Application at dream.csac.ca.gov  with CSUDH school code 001141 by March 2, 2022.

If you need assistance completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or the California Dream Act Application for 2022-2023, attend a virtual workshop.

STEP 4: Check Your Major, Deadline: April 1, 2022

The major you applied to is listed on your admission email. If your major is incorrect or you would like to change it, please submit the Change of Undergraduate Major for Admitted Students Form to Dropbox by April 1, 2022.

Please note, change of major forms will not be accepted after April 1, 2022 and you will be expected to attend New Student Orientation based on the major indicated on your admission email.

STEP 5: Submit the Intent to Enroll Deposit, Deadline: May 2, 2022

Accept admission and submit the $125 non-refundable Intent to Enroll Deposit on your student portal at My.CSUDH.edu by May 2, 2022. This deposit will be applied to your fall 2022 tuition.

If you submitted a 2022-2023 FAFSA or California Dream Act Application by March 2, 2022 and received a Student Aid Report (SAR) with an Expected Family Contribution (EFC) of $0, the Intent to Enroll Deposit waiver will be applied to your account. This means, the $125 fee will be waived. If you submitted the FAFSA or California Dream Act Application after March 2, 2022, you will not be eligible for the waiver.

STEP 6: Register for New Student Orientation (NSO), Deadline: May 2, 2022

Register and pay the $99 non-refundable New Student Orientation (NSO) Fee by May 2, 2022. Orientation dates are by college and payment must be cleared in order to secure your spot. NSO is a mandatory enrollment requirement so check your schedule before selecting a date.

STEP 7: Complete Directed Self-Placement, Deadline: May 7, 2022

Directed Self-Placement (DSP) is not a test. It includes reading two brief articles, writing a brief essay in response, and then taking a survey in which you answer a short series of questions about your reading and writing habits. The survey will recommend which First Year Composition (FYC) course might best suit your needs, but you make the final course selection.

Login to Blackboard at toro.csudh.edu and complete DSP by May 7, 2022.

For more information, please visit csudh.edu/dsp.

STEP 8: Submit all Financial Aid Documents, Deadline: May 13, 2022

If you have already submitted your 2022-2023 FAFSA or California Dream Act Application, check your To Do List on your Student Center at My.CSUDH.edu to submit any documents needed to determine your eligibility. If your financial aid has been determined, an 'Offer' email will be sent to your ToroMail. Follow the instructions listed on the offer email to confirm your financial aid for the 2022-2023 academic school year (Fall 2022 and Spring 2023).  

STEP 9: Apply for Housing, Deadline: May 28, 2022

If you are interested in living on campus, please submit the $30 housing application beginning March 29, 2022. Only students who have submitted their Intent to Enroll Deposit and paid for New Student Orientation are eligible to apply for housing, because housing is available on a first-come, first-serve basis. There is no guarantee that housing will be available if you wait until May 2 to submit the Intent to Enroll Deposit and register for New Student Orientation.

STEP 10: SUBMIT FINAL TRANSCRIPTS, Deadline: July 15, 2022

For information on how to submit electronic transcripts, please visit csudh.edu/future-students/admitted/final-transcripts.  

Admission decisions are based on self-reported information from your admission application.

  1. Complete Senior year courses as indicated on your admission application
  2. Maintain an overall admissible GPA
  3. Meet all enrollment deadlines.
STEP 11: CSU-Wide Immunization Requirements
