You will be notified of your admission status by email. If you are accepted, submit the intent to enroll form (within 20 days of acceptance) to secure your seat in the program. This form will be included with your acceptance letter. Track I BSN Goleta is an impacted program.

* The second degree applies only to baccalaureate degrees offered through Extended University (not the main campus in Camarillo): BS Business Online, BA Psychology Online, BS Health Science Online and BS Nursing (Track I BSN Goleta, Track II ADN/RN to BSN). The second BA/BS is major/core courses and Upper Division Interdisciplinary General Education (UDIGE) only; if a student's first BA/BS is from CSUCI then UDIGE would be waived since the requirement is satisfied.
