CSU Eligibility Index
For the California State University, things have been getting more and more competitive as the years go by. The index below will let you know whether you qualify to apply, based on what you've earned on your SAT and/or ACT. Notice that the higher your SAT/ ACT score is, the more lenient the CSU is with your g.p.a. And vice versa, the higher your g.p.a. is, the more lenient the CSU will be with your SAT/ ACT score. The chart below is the eligibility index for those of us who have lived in California for at least a year, known as "California Residents". It has nothing to do with American citizenship status. Note also that below a 2.0 g.p.a. will not qualify you for regular admission, and a 3.0+ g.p.a. automatically qualifies you.
