Visiting Student

Visiting Students are admitted to CSU on a temporary basis to take courses for one academic semester or summer session.

As a visiting student, or an undergraduate student-at-large, you are limited to a maximum of 30 semester hours. Once you reach the 30 semester hour limit, you must apply as a degree-seeking student and satisfy appropriate admission requirements.*

All Visiting students must submit:

  • Complete an application at CSU app.
  • The $25 non-refundable application fee or Fee Waiver Request Form (currently our application fee is waived for 2024).
  • Verification of good standing by submitting ONE of the following documents:
    • College/university transcript (2.0 on a 4.0 scale required).
    • Letter of good standing from the registrar or Dean of the college.
    • Recent grade statement indicating the cumulative grade point average (2.0 on a 4.0 scale).

Note: Non-degree-seeking students (visiting students) are not eligible for financial aid. However, VA benefits may apply.
