Thank you for your interest in California State University, East Bay. The steps below outline the process you'll need to apply to CSUEB and register with our office. For information about emergency accommodations, click here.
- Apply for admission to the University and submit all requested admissions forms.
- It helps us a great deal if you are able to gather written documentation of your disability from your doctor or school in preparation for the transfer to CSU East Bay. If it has been more than a year or two since you've last had your disability verified, we may need updated verification. For health-related disabilities, you may use our Diagnosis Intake Form. For learning disabilities, we will need a copy of your most recent learning assessment report (sometimes called psychoeducational report). We do NOT require your Individualized Education Plan (IEP). See our handout describing guidelines for learning disability verification. Your disability documentation can be mailed, faxed (510-885-4775), or brought in to our office in person.
- After you've received notification of your admission to the University and have appropriate disability documentation in hand, call Accessibility Services at 510-885-3868 (V/TDD) to request an intake appointment with a counselor. Intake appointments are generally conducted in person but may be completed by phone or computer, if necessary. Please allow an hour and a half for this initial appointment.
- During the intake appointment, you will have the opportunity to discuss with a counselor the nature of your disability and its impact on your education, as well as any specific accommodation needs. Your counselor will complete the Determination of Accommodations document and help you get started in arranging your accommodations.
As a registered Accessibility Services student you may schedule follow-up appointments with your counselor to discuss your transition to the University, any accommodations you may be using, and how to best manage your disability symptoms in order to be your most successful here at CSUEB.
