Only students with new information indicating they meet the admission criteria, or those who can demonstrate an extreme personal situation with supporting documentation, are considered. 

Requests for reconsideration must be e-mailed within 15 days of receipt of the denial letter to The request must come from your official CSUEB Horizon e-mail account. In the request please include the following required items:

  • Full name
  • CSUEB Net ID
  • Term of Application
  • Information regarding why you meet the published admission requirements with supporting documentation
  • Information regarding an extreme personal hardship which caused you to not be able to meet the admission requirements with supporting documentation 

Submission of a petition is not a guarantee of approval, so all students should make other educational plans in the event the petition is not approved. A notification of your status and/or a decisions will be sent to your Horizon e-mail in two to four weeks.

Applicants to graduate programs who have been denied admission should contact their academic program or department directly if they wish to appeal this decision and to request reconsideration.
