International Education & Global Engagement
  • International Admissions (IA) plays a central role in bringing highly qualified international students to CSULB. International Admissions communicates with applicants through every stage of the process to ensure that their documentation is complete. IA makes admissions decisions for all undergraduate applicants and facilitates the issuance of visa support. For graduate students, IA conducts an initial review to determine general eligibility before sending applications on to graduate departments for admission decisions.
