Applying at a Glance

Step 1

You may submit an application online at CSUMentor. There is a non-refundable, non-transferable application fee of $55 if you do not qualify for a fee waiver. The need based fee waiver may be used at up to six campuses and will be confirmed once you submit your application.

When you have successfully submitted your application, you will instantly receive a confirmation number. Please print and keep the page that your confirmation number is on as your receipt.

Step 2

You may mail any additional documents (application fee, official transcripts, residency information, etc.) to: 

Admissions & Student Recruitment
5500 University Parkway
San Bernardino, CA 92407

Step 3

Within one week, you will receive notice by email to let you know we have received your application. This is your acknowledgement letter. The e-mail will contain your Coyote ID number, activation code, and CSUSB e-mail account information. Please contact us if you do not receive this e-mail after two weeks from the submission of your application.

Step 4

Activate your MyCoyote account. (Read detailed instructions on how to access your MyCoyote account.) Applicants can view their status online at MyCoyote and determine if there are any other documents to turn in to the Office of Admissions & Student Recruitment. Admissions decisions will usually arrive by e-mail approximately 2 weeks after you have completed your application.

Feel free to contact our office at 909-537-5188 or e-mail an admissions counselor at if you have any questions about your application process.
