LSU Background


To apply, prospective students must complete an Admission Application using our CSU Mentor website. CSUMentor is an online resource designed to help students and their families learn about the CSU system, select a CSU campus to attend, plan to finance higher education, and apply for admission. Future students can also take virtual tours, find answers to frequently asked questions, and plan courses to meet CSU requirements. All applications must be accompanied by a $55 non–refundable application fee which can be paid online by credit card or electronic check. Academic transcripts are also required. Please allow us 4 to 6 weeks to process your application once the fee, transcripts and all other documentation have been received.

Need help? Our Admissions website provides Application Checklists to walk you through the process.
