International Admissions (IA), a unit of the Center for International Education (CIE), is your first contact within CIE if you wish to become an international student (on F-1 or J-1 visa) at California State University, Long Beach (CSULB). IA is specialized in evaluating foreign credentials; therefore, admission decisions for U.S. citizens/residents with coursework completed outside the U.S. will be rendered by IA.
U.S. citizens/residents whose most recent degree is from overseas must demonstrate their English language proficiency
. For graduate and second bachelor applicants, completion of English courses at a community college does not waive the English language requirement. Make certain to use CSU Mentor’s domestic application
to apply and send necessary items to the Office of International Admissions
by the application document deadline
