Are you just shy of meeting the A-G GPA requirement for admission to Cal State Monterey Bay? If you have the potential and are driven to succeed academically, submit a completed application now and our Office of Admissions at Cal State Monterey Bay will review your application for admission.

A partnership with the Principal and Superintendent of Soledad High School and CSUMB recognizes your academic potential beyond just specific numbers. If you're close to meeting the GPA requirement, we'll review your application and admit you based on your academic potential.

How it Works:

  • If you have an A-G GPA between 2.00 and 2.49, you'll be evaluated for admission based on supplemental factors.
  • Supplemental factors include:
    • Number of courses exceeding minimum "a-g" requirements
    • GPA in math and/or science courses
    • Household income
    • Extracurricular and leadership involvement
    • School recommendations for potential
  • Submit your completed admissions application by May 1st to be considered for Fall 2024 admission. Don't miss out on this opportunity!

And that's not all! By submitting your application by May 1st, you'll also be eligible for scholarships. No additional scholarship application is needed. Plus, if admitted, you'll receive a Soledad Enrollment Confirmation Waiver. ($100 Value)

Don't let a GPA requirement hold you back. Your future starts here at Soledad High School!
