Previously disqualified students should complete the online disqualification workshop prior to seeking advisement appointment. An academic advisor will issue a "Previously Disqualified Readmission Information Sheet" to students who may qualify for a future readmission. The following are general guidelines used to make readmission recommendations:
Show consistent academic success since the last disqualification. Grades of Incomplete, W, or grades below “C” are not considered to be a demonstration of academic success.
Raise CSUN and total grade point averages (GPAs) by a significant amount PRIOR to readmission.
- Must achieve significant GPA improvement no later than previous spring for a fall admission cycle.
Complete your lower division business core requirements successfully.
If you were disqualified after completion of your lower division business core, complete your upper division business core requirements for your chosen major. For example, complete MGT 360 and BUS 302/L if you are planning to pursue Management.
If the University accepts applications for previously disqualified students, submit an application for readmission through Cal State Apply during the FILING PERIOD. All supporting documents such as the Previously Disqualified Questionnaire form must be submitted by established deadlines. Please visit the Admissions and Records Returning to CSUN website for additional information.
Submit official transcripts from any other colleges attended since last enrollment at CSUN.
David Nazarain College of Business and Economics and University approval for readmission after disqualification is required. Not all students will be readmitted. Impacted majors such as Accountancy and Finance, and Insurance and Financial Services are not available for readmission consideration.
Students may complete up to 24 units through the Tseng College at CSUN. Prior to enrolling through Tseng College, please consult with a Nazarian College Academic Advisor. For enrollment information visit the Tseng College website.
Students may complete lower division coursework at a community college. Please seek advisement with a community college counselor and inquire about General Education Certification. See www.assist.org for course equivalencies for CSUN courses. Courses completed at colleges other than CSUN will contribute toward the total (cumulative) GPA, but do not change the CSUN GPA.
