All applicants can complete their applications by logging onto CSUMentor, a Web-based system that helps students plan and apply to the CSU online. It is designed to help students and their families learn about the CSU system, select a CSU campus, finance their higher education and apply for admission. The site offers technical support, course-check and open and closed campus information.

Olivia Rosas, Cal State San Bernardino’s associate vice president for enrollment services, recommends that students pay close attention to all of the admissions information they receive from the university, such as deadlines, event dates and the additional documents they need to finalize their application.

Students are strongly encouraged to take the entrance exams such as the SAT or ACT as well as placement tests such as the Entry Level Math exam (ELM) and the English Placement Test (EPT) as soon as possible to improve their chances of getting admitted to the university and know what classes they will take when they get here.

“The next step after getting admitted to the university is to secure financial assistance in the form of grants, scholarships, loans and so on,” Rosas said.

Students in need of assistance with their electronic applications may call for technical support at (800) GO-TO-XAP (or 800-468-6927). The service is open Monday through Friday from 6:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.
