Resources For Counselors
Welcome to our resource site for counselors. Students can find everything they need on our Prospective Student site, or by calling our Welcome Center at 510-885-2556. Students apply at CSU Mentor, our online admission application system.
Reminder: The CSU system does not accept the College Board SAT Application Fee Waiver or the NACAC Application Fee Waiver. CSU Mentor will automatically determine whether the student may be eligible for a fee waiver. Additionally, please note that each student is eligible for up to four fee waivers for different CSU campuses.

Early Start is a Smart Start!
The Early Start Program was mandated by the CSU Board of Trustees in response to numbers of new students requiring remediation in mathematics and English. The goals of the Early Start Program include better preparation of new students in mathematics and English by starting in the summer preceding Fall enrollment, provide better assessment of academic preparation and improve students' likelihood of a successful completion of a college degree.
For an overview you can share, view the Early Start Counselor presentation (pdf).
For full details see the Early Start web site.

Important Information Regarding the Submission of Test Scores:
Students who have applied to Cal State East Bay, and have already requested that their scores from taking the EPT, ELM, SAT or ACT be forwarded to the University, should be assured that Cal State East Bay will upload these scores to the student’s application file. There is no need for further proof to be forwarded to the University. If a student says they sent a score on their own, and it is not showing as received, please forward to F13Frosh@csueastbay.edu to investigate.
For students who took the EAP in conjunction with their CST during 11th grade, these scores are also automatically uploaded into the student’s application. All EAP scores are sent to the University, and there is no proof that needs to be provided. Students who scored “Conditional” on the English and/or math portion of the EAP, and are currently taking approved coursework in English/Math during their Senior year, must pass the course with a C or better in order to be exempt from the EPT/ELM. If a student is at risk of receiving lower than a C grade, the recommendation is for that student to take the EPT/ELM to ensure they meet all testing requirements of the CSU, and that it will not jeopardize their eligibility to enroll in the Fall. Proof of successful completion of the high school course is determined by a review of the official final transcript with graduation posted, which is due to Cal State East Bay by July 15 for all applicants. See more information on the list of approved senior-year courses for students designated as “conditional” at this web site: http://www.calstate.edu/sas/
An informational bulletin on EPT/ELM exemptions is included in the packet mailed to all students who are admitted to Cal State East Bay. To see this detailed information on exemptions, please go to http://www.ets.org/s/csu/pdf/
-If there are any questions about test requirements, students should send an email to: F13Frosh@csueastbay.edu, and include their full name and CSUEB NetID.
Endorsement of CSUEB Admissions Counselors
"On behalf of the district, I would like to thank you for making the time to support our empowerment efforts during last Saturday’s Parent Empowerment Summit. Your presentation was an eye opener to many parents. The information you presented not only helped paint of a picture of how the higher education system works, but it gave them specific and concrete requirements that their children must meet and master as they prepare in their paths to college. Thank you, Marc and the CSUEB team for your support. We look forward to deepening our partnership with you."
