International Admissions / Status

What's My Status?


I Have Applied

After submitting the CSU Mentor application, you will receive an email confirming that your application has been received.

A second email from the Admissions and Records office will contain:

  • Your new Cal State Fullerton student email address
  • Your Campus-Wide IDentification number (CWID) and your PIN to access the Student Portal

Important communications are sent to your new student email address. We recommend that you check it often. The CWID is a nine-digit number that starts with an "8." Always use this number to identify yourself and on any documents you send to Cal State Fullerton.


Processing Times

CSUF can only decide on your admission after all your required documents and test scores are received.

Academic records are called "transcripts" in the United States, but in other countries they may be called mark sheets, leaving certificates or maturity certificates. For more information on documents required for each country, please visit our Academic Documents page.

The required documents to submit for your admission are listed on your "To Do List" in the Portal.


Access to the Portal

Student portal in California State University Fullerton| CSUF international students

The Portal is a password-protected area of the Cal State Fullerton website where students can get information about their academics.


Check your Student Portal Often

The Student Portal is your connection to Cal State Fullerton. The following information is available through the Student Portal:

  • Check your admission status and refer to the "To Do List"
  • Accept admission decision
  • Pay and register for classes

Once you become a student, the portal will be used to see your grades, order transcripts and access class materials.
