These formal agreements offer early acceptance to the school, guaranteeing CSUF students a slot if they meet qualifications. Up to four students per school, per year can be admitted to these linkage schools.
Linkage programs not only accelerate the application process, they eliminate the need to apply to multiple schools, significantly reducing the cost of the application process and travel expenses for interviews, which can easily add up to $3,000 to $5,000 each application cycle. Another advantage is that postbaccalaureate students can skip taking a year off, known as the “glide year” to prepare applications, before entering professional school.
