Students interested in applying to the Educational Opportunity Program, (E.O.P.) should complete their E.O.P. application on CSUMentor after they have submitted their application for admission.
- You will receive an email from C.S.U.B. Admissions and Records acknowledging receipt of your application along with your specific C.S.U.B. ID number and login instructions to your myCSUB account. Pay particular attention to any outstanding "To-Do" list items that you need to complete and/or submit. Admission to the University will be contingent upon meeting all eligibility requirements as well as meeting all deadlines and documents to be submitted. Submit requested documents on time to the University.
- Check your Admissions Status online at myCSUB regularly for any updates. Once a decision is made, it will be reflected on your account, and you will receive a letter with further information such as signing up for an Orientation.
- Be sure to monitor your "To-Do" list regularly even after you have been admitted; there may be additional documents or requirements you will need to submit such as your final high school transcript once you graduate. Do not send documents or correspondence unless required.
- Important: make sure your email address and other contact information are correct. C.S.U. Bakersfield uses email as one of the main forms of communication.

Application Filing Period
The initial application filing period for first-time freshmen and transfer applicants is October 1st - November 30th of the previous year for the fall term, June 1st - 20th of the previous year for winter term, and August 1st - 31st of the previous year for the spring term. Post Baccalaureate and Graduate applicants must check with the specific desired graduate department for any deadlines the program may have. Current application filing statuses may differ from each C.S.U. campus. Applicants are encouraged to apply early during available filing periods, pay close attention to the requirements for admission, as well as the deadlines for submitting an application.
Cost of Attendance
Cost of Attendance (C.O.A.) is a figure calculated annually by financial aid offices that represents an estimate of the total cost (including tuition, fees, books & supplies, room & board, transportation, and misc. personal expenses) for a full-time student to attend their university during the academic year.
Separate C.O.A. figures are determined for students living On-Campus, Off-Campus, and With Parents. The C.O.A. can help families budget for all the expenses to attend college. It is important to note that only a portion of the total C.O.A. is paid directly to the University. Additionally, the C.O.A. is a standardized estimate, and may be adjusted for students on a case-by-case basis with proper documentation.
The cost of attendance is an important factor in determining student financial aid eligibility. The Expected Family Contribution (E.F.C.), which is calculated from the FAFSA data by the federal processor, represents the amount the student and his or her family are expected to contribute to the C.O.A. The E.F.C. is subtracted from the C.O.A. to determine the student's financial Need. Financial aid is then awarded to help offset the student's C.O.A.
If the financial aid is not enough to cover the Need, then the remaining amount is considered Unmet Need. It is important to note that a student is not required to have financial Need to be eligible to receive Unsubsidized Federal Stafford Loans, PLUS loans, or merit-based scholarships.
