Tips on Completing the Cal State Apply University Application

For those applying to College of Education programs at SDSU:

Cal State Apply is new.  This year, there will be some duplicate elements that you will be required to address in both the Cal State Apply University application and in the Program application.  

What to do if the Program you want to apply to does not appear in the list in Cal State Apply?


In the Academic History section:

Applicants do NOT need to complete the Transcript Entry section.  You can click on  "I am not Adding any College Transcripts" to skip this section. (page 26 of Grad App Tutorial on right)

You can do the same thing with the GPA question that follows.  Click on Add GPA and then select "I don't have a GPA to add" (page 27 of Grad App Tutorial on right)

These items are not required on the graduate application at SDSU.

In the Program Materials section

To complete this section you need to click on the box and then click on the program name that appears in a blue box.  You will then be presented with important information about applying to the program which you have selected.  Please review this material.  You will then notice that there is a question tab under the photo header.  Click on the questions tab to acknowledge that you have reviewed this application process information.
