Redirected, but CSU eligible
Redirected students have met all CSU admission requirements. However, the campus(es) they applied to did not have the capacity to admit more students. The CSU Redirection Policy provides students with the opportunity to choose another CSU campus open to redirected students.
Admission is conditional until we verify that you have met all CSU admission requirements as evidenced on your final official transcript(s).
