arrow Previous bar Next arrow

(a) A high school graduate who is neither a resident nor a graduate of a California high school may be admitted to a campus as a first-time freshman if

(1) the graduate's eligibility index is equal to or greater than that minimum eligibility index, as determined by the Chancellor, which is required to limit eligibility to that on-sixth of California high school graduates which has the greatest probability of academic success in the California State University, and

(2) for admissions prior to fall term 2003, the graduate has completed satisfactorily a comprehensive pattern of college preparatory subjects to include four years of English, three years of mathematics, one year of United States history or United States history and government, one year of laboratory science, two years of foreign language, one year of visual and performing arts, and three years of electives from any combination of English, mathematics, social science, history, laboratory science, foreign language, visual and performing arts, and other fields of study determined by the Chancellor to be appropriate preparation for California State University study. A graduate who qualifies for admission under subdivision (a)(1) and who has completed at least ten of the courses in the comprehensive pattern of this subdivision may be admitted on condition that the graduate completes the work identified by the Chancellor or designee at the time of the graduate's admission as necessary to remove the coursework deficiency within the first two years of the graduate's baccalaureate studies. The Chancellor shall implement the comprehensive pattern of college preparatory subject requirements and in so implementing shall make every effort to avoid undue hardship during the phasing in of these requirements and shall determine satisfactory completion of the requirements and may grant exceptions for preparation determined by the Chancellor to be equivalent.

(3) commencing with admissions for the fall term 2003, the graduate has completed satisfactorily the comprehensive pattern of college preparatory subjects pursuant to Section 40601. The Chancellor shall implement the comprehensive pattern of college preparatory subject requirements and in so implementing shall make every effort to avoid undue hardship during the phasing in of these requirements and shall determine satisfactory completion of the requirements and may grant exceptions for preparation determined by the Chancellor to be equivalent.

(b) This section shall not apply to an applicant who is eligible for admission as a first-time freshman pursuant to Section 40755.
