Admissions and Records

The Office of Admissions and Records promotes student success through services that begin with the application to Cal State Northridge and culminate with graduation. WHEN YOU APPLY, we communicate admissions criteria, timelines and instructions; evaluate your course work, credit and test scores; and provide online tools for you to monitor and complete your application process. DURING YOUR STUDIES, we answer your questions, help you interpret university policies pertaining to enrollment, provide degree planning tools, maintain your student records, and verify enrollment and GPA. AS GRADUATION NEARS, we assist you with applying for the bachelor's degree and diploma, offer guidance to meet all degree requirements, and verify completion of those requirements. BEYOND GRADUATION, we maintain your permanent academic record.
