    I just got the weirdest denial message.

    "You have applied for Undergraduate admissions as a Transfer Student for the Fall Semester 2016, as a Resident. You have indicated an academic plan of Public Health.
    Your re-admission has been denied. Your previously disqualified reinstatement was denied by the Advisement Center of College of Health & Human Dev.
    If you have taken Advance Placement Test(s), or the International Baccalaureate test, or CLEP test, have official scores sent to the Admissions and Records office."

    I don't get it, I've never applied to CSUN before this much less attended there so how can I have been disqualified from the school. It seems like their saying I previously went there.

    SMH. getting kicked out before I even got in lol
    I mean not like I was expecting to get in with that 3.9 minimum GPA thing but still.

    I think it's just a nicer way of saying it possibly?? lol, mine said the same thing, but just for business instead of your health major.
  • dgrenas793dgrenas793 Registered User Posts: 64 Junior Member
    Lol yeah I called the office and they said the message was a mistake, but I still didn't get in lol. Might as well turn the school into a higher level community college
  • Emagana95Emagana95 Registered User Posts: 12 New Member
    Yeah, they admit way too many locals that have lower GPA's too, but whatever sadly. Best of luck

    Got that message too when I've never applied there either.. Mine also said "resident" but I'd be paying out of state tuition... how does that make sense??

    @obliviouscat I completed the golden four, I called, the representative reviewed my application right in the moment and admitted me.

    So I had a tour with my college at CSUN, on Friday the 15 of April, 2016. That same day when I came back, I checked my portal and received this
    "You have applied for Undergraduate admissions as a Transfer Student for the Fall Semester 2016, as a Resident. You have indicated an academic plan of Management.
    You have been provisionally admitted to CSUN. Your admission is provisional until you have completed all eligibility requirements, including any required classes. If you fail to fulfill any outstanding requirements by the specified deadlines, your admission will be withdrawn, and you will need to reapply during the next admissions cycle. For more information, visit CSUN Admissions and Records Provisional Admission.
    Intent to Register (Click here to Accept/Decline Admission)
    Due Date: 07/01/2016"

    I did not get an email, or letter in the mail. I simply checked my portal based on the letter they sent when you first applied in November.

    I go to Ventura College, which is considered a "local-area" college. I have a 3.0 GPA, solid, will be completing my Associates for Transfer: Business Administration this spring and would be IGETC-certified (But I took speech).
    From what I understand, anyone not considered local area students have different requirements in addition to meeting local admission requirements. So if you attend any of these community colleges for transfer, you're in CSUN's local area and would be considered first pick (Tier 1).
    -Antelope Valley College
    -College of the Canyons
    -East Los Angeles College
    -Glendale Community College
    -Los Angeles City College
    -Los Angeles Harbor College
    -Los Angeles Mission College
    -Los Angeles Pierce College
    -Los Angeles Trade Technical College
    -Los Angeles Valley College
    -Moorpark College
    -Oxnard College
    -Pasadena City College
    -Santa Monica College
    -Southwest Los Angeles College
    -Ventura College
    -West Los Angeles

    You simply have to meet the local admissions (Tier 1) requirements such as a minimum of 60 transferable semester units (90 quarter units), a 2.0 GPA average or better and the completion of the BIG FOUR (Ciritical thinking, speech, written communication and math). And they'll have to give you the provisional admittance. Now for everyone not attending the colleges above, considered out of the area, you'll need to complete all the Tier 1 requirements and have a higher than 3.7 GPA, depending on your major. The best chance getting in the backdoor would be completing CSU-GE Requirements or IGETC (TAKE SPEECH AS WELL) and getting a Associate's degree for Transfer in your field or in another.

    The majors that are very heavily impacted which anyone out of the area would have a snowball's chance in hell would be: Accounting, Business Adminstration-Insurance and Financial Services Option, Finance which would admitting applicants into the pre-major program based on GPA. The other three is directly on people's GPA is: Cinema and Television Arts, Kinesiology, and Psychology. Music people need to pass an audition.

    Even if you've completed all the CSU-GE requirements and received an Associates degree for transfer, if doesn't offer any sort of back door chance on getting in. The 3.9 GPA is necessary unless you have a connection on the inside who can get you on a waitlist. And even then, the minimum GPA for the waitlist is a 3.7. It's not just the majors listed on the CSUN website that are impacted, I'm an art major with a concentration in animation and I'm dealing with the same issues as all the other non-local applicants.

    I think this is unfair. I know they had to go with this method, but I feel like they could come up with a better method.
  • mosbi15mosbi15 Registered User Posts: 27 New Member
    I was denied as well. I applied to an impacted major, I understand having higher restrictions for those ones, but 3.9? So ridiculous and yet I got accepted to some of the UC's which I'm not a local of either.
  • Webb26Webb26 Registered User Posts: 4 New Member
    @cassafras What office did you call that gave you a decision? I called and they gave me the run around.

    1st I called Admissions, they then followed up by saying that I'm applying for Engineering so they sent me to that department. I talked to the engineering department which sent me to the specific Mechanical engineering office.Then I was told I need to talk to the department chair (previously dq'd student) who directly deals with my situation. Made an appointment with the department chair who then said It's not up to me it's up to admissions.

    At this point in time, I'm just confused.

    I don't have any decision at all yet...major is public health
  • obliviouscatobliviouscat Registered User Posts: 9 New Member

  • chs2014chs2014 Registered User Posts: 168 Junior Member
