Enrollment at CSUF
A serious commitment means that all exchange students are considered "full-time" when they are enrolled in 12 units of classes each semester. Approval for 9 units of classes may be obtained from the CSUF Exchange Student Advisor. If your institution requires you to enroll in 15 units of classes, you must submit a letter of verification from your home institution exchange program coordinator. This letter should be submitted ONLY AFTER you are admitted. You will receive an email from the International Students & Scholars Office requiring you to submit an enrollment form indicating your choice of classes. When you submit this enrollment form, please include the verification letter from your home institution if you are required to register in 15 units of classes.
In addition, exchange students must:
- Meet minimum academic standards of 2.0 GPA (Grade Point Average) each semester
- Comply with both campus (academic) and federal (immigration) regulations to stay focused in their studies
CSUF Enrollment Request Form
Exchange students must complete and submit this online CSUF Enrollment Request Form before the deadlines listed below. Exchange students are responsible for making sure that they do not have any holds on their CSUF records that prevent enrollment (for example, requirements such as health insurance, immunization records) and for getting approval of CSUF courses from their home institutions.
|Enrollment Request Deadlines||Fall — June 15|

CSUF Transcripts for Home Institutions
Official transcripts are sent to exchange students' home institutions upon completion of the exchange program at no cost to the exchange student. If exchange students want an additional copy for their personal records, they must request an official copy at the Office of Admissions & Records. A fee is required for each copy requested.
