Instructions Using The Online Application

Do not submit an online application if you have previously applied to or attended classes at CSU (either as a degree seeking or non-degree seeking student). You may already have a student record. Contact the Office of Admissions at (937) 376-6348 to determine your current student status.

Processing of the online application will take approximately 5 business days. If you need to register immediately contact the Office of Admissions.

General Instructions for Online Application

  • Create a Login ID and password (PIN). Remember these codes. You will need them if you want to login later to complete your application or to view the status of your submitted application.
  • Unfinished applications will be retained for 5 business days.
  • At the beginning of the application, select the student type (Consortium, Continuing Ed, Non-Degree, Transient, Undergraduate Freshman or Undergraduate Transfer). Select the term you are planning to attend. There may be several choices. Select only one. If you do not see the term that you are applying for, you may need to wait and recheck or contact the Office of Admissions: 937-376-6348.
  • The online application will not be available approximately 2 weeks before the start of classes. Applications should be made in person at that time.
  • Complete each section of the application.
  • Review each section to verify your information, then submit the application.


    Note: The system only prompts you to provide required information. There may be other questions on the form that should also be answered. Be sure you have fully responded to both required and relevant non-required items before you submit your application.

  • You can only submit your application once. Once submitted, you will not be able to make changes to the information using the online application system. After your application has been processed, contact the Office of Admissions to correct your information. After you receive your CSU ID number you can use MyCSU to view and change your information.
  • Logout. To help ensure the security of your application, logout of the online application once your work is compete and close your browser.
  • Allow 5 business days for your information to be reviewed and processed. Although you can monitor the status of your application online, you will also be notified of the admission decision in writing. This notification will include your CSU Student ID number, which is required to register for classes using our online registration process.
