Any online student applicant from a previous semester or term that desires to continue the application and enrollment process for the next available term or semester, must reply via email that you would like for us to continue processing your application for the Spring 2023 semester. Your application will be processed as a transfer online degree-seeking or certificate student. You must find an alternative form of payment for your education. Please contact our Office of Financial Aid, financialaid@centralstate.edu for more information on grants, scholarships, etc.


Application and Official Transcript Status

All applications for Spring 2023 are currently being reviewed and verified for file completion to render a decision. Please remember to submit all official transcripts directly from all previously attended institutions to CSU. Once your official transcript checklist is complete, we will render a decision within 14 to 21 business days. Please monitor your application portal for document upload and application status updates. Our online admissions team will continue their focus on processing your application and records. Additional inquiries will stifle and slow our daily processing efforts.


Admissions and Enrollment Process for Full Enrollment

There are three steps to the Admissions and Enrollment Process: Step 1: Acceptance to CSU, Step 2: Transfer Credit Evaluation, and Step 3: Course Registration (Final Step for Full Enrollment). After your application and document checklist are complete, the online admissions office will render a decision within 14 to 21 business days. You will receive an email noting the application status and next steps.

Your file will then move to step 2: Transfer Credit Evaluation. After the Online Transcript Evaluation Team has completed your transcript evaluation, they will send you an email noting this information and the instructions and/or link to schedule your appointment with an online advisor to register for classes. Your file will then move to step 3: Course Registration, by our Online Advising Team. Please remember to look for the email from the Registrar’s Office (Online Transcript Evaluation Team) to schedule your appointment with your online advisor. (Note: Your CSU email should be active and set up to schedule your appointment. Check your previous email for instructions on how to set up your email, go to www.centralstate.edu, then click on Student Portal at the top of the webpage to access your student email, or contact our IT Support office at ITsupport@centralstate.edu
