Conditional Admission

Conditional Admission is an ideal program for students who are interested in pursuing a degree at CSUMB and meet the academic requirements for admission, but require further instruction in English Language.

How it works

You will apply to the American Language and Culture Program (ALCP) and once admitted, you will be issued a conditional admission letter to your desired bachelor's program.

An I-20 or DS-2019 will be issued for an adequate period of time for you to achieve proficiency and to obtain a degree.

Once at CSUMB, your language level will be assessed, and you will be placed in the appropriate level of English courses (levels 1-4).

After successfully passing the highest level of ALCP or reaching the English Proficiency requirement for your desired program, you can formally apply to CSUMB via Cal State Apply.

Please note, acceptance to the Conditional Admission program does not guarantee acceptance to a degree program at CSUMB. If you do not become proficient in the English language, you will not be accepted in the degree program.

If you have successfully met the proficiency requirements, you can then begin regular university study in the next available session.
