Study Abroad for Visiting Students
For undergraduate and graduate students
Students can study at CSUN for one or two semesters without going through the formal admission process. Courses taken at “Semester at CSUN” can be transferred to the student’s home university for credit. Each semester at CSUN offers courses in more than 60 different academic programs. The primary benefit of “Semester at CSUN” over regular admission is that students can pre-select classes. All course instruction and faculty available to full-time CSUN degree students are also available to “Semester at CSUN” students.
Conditional Admission + ESL
Students who meet the academic requirements for admission to CSU Northridge for undergraduate programs or MBA, but who are missing their English language proficiency requirement, may be eligible for conditional admission. These students are granted admission to CSUN’s Intensive English Program (IEP) and issued a conditional admission letter to CSUN for their desired program.
