Graduate and Postbaccalaureate Application Procedures

CSU Dominguez Hills welcomes applications from students, without regard to age, marital status, religion, sexual preference, sex, disability, race, color, or national origin who provide evidence of suitable preparation for work at the graduate and postbaccalaureate level. Students are advised to contact the appropriate graduate program offices as soon as graduate work is contemplated.
All graduate and post-baccalaureate applicants (e.g., doctorate, joint Ph.D. applicants, master’s degree applicants, those seeking educational credentials or certificates, and where permitted, holders of baccalaureate degrees interested in taking courses for personal or professional growth) must file a complete graduate application as described in the graduate and post-baccalaureate admission materials at www.calstate.edu/apply. Applicants seeking a second bachelor’s degree should submit the undergraduate application for admission unless specifically requested to do otherwise. Applicants who completed undergraduate degree requirements and graduated the preceding term are also required to complete and submit an application and the $55 nonrefundable application fee. Since applicants for post-baccalaureate programs may be limited to the choice of a single campus on each application, re-routing to alternate campuses or later changes of campus choice are not guaranteed. To be assured of initial consideration by more than one campus, it is necessary to submit separate applications (including fees) to each. Applications submitted by way of www.calstate.edu/apply are expected unless submission of an electronic application is impossible. An electronic version of the CSU graduate application is available at www.calstate.edu/apply.
Applicants must submit the admission file within the campus deadlines. Contact the Office of Graduate Studies for current deadlines. Late applicants will be charged a Late Application Processing fee.
Students receiving their bachelor's degree from Dominguez Hills must submit a graduate application.
Most departments require an additional application for students seeking a master's degree or a credential. Department application forms should be requested directly from the academic unit offering the particular program. Applicants should consult the program sections of this catalog for specific program requirements and deadlines.
Students accepted for postbaccalaureate or graduate study must enroll in the University in the semester for which application was made. Failure to enroll will result in cancellation of admission. Transcripts will be retained for one year. Enrollment in a subsequent semester will require a new application and fee.
