Conditional Admissions Requirements

Update 9/23/20

Due to the continued coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we understand that many students are not able to meet the standard program application requirements for Spring 2021. We are currently implementing the following temporary admissions procedures for Spring 2021 in an effort to assist our students.

For applicants who meet our minimum GPA requirement of a 2.75 or higher the following conditions will be accepted:

  • CBEST: We will allow students to be conditionally admitted to the program without meeting this requirement as long as verification of a test date is submitted on the application. Students will be given a deadline of May 1, 2021 to provide proof of passing CBEST scores. A hold will also be placed on their account so that they will not be able to register for Summer 2021 courses until this is provided. If not provided by this date, students may be dropped from the program.
  • CSET: We will allow students to be conditionally admitted to the program without meeting this requirement as long as verification of a test date is submitted on the application. Students will be given a deadline of May 1, 2021 to provide proof that at least one CSET sub test has been attempted. A hold will also be placed on their account so that they will not be able to register for Summer 2021 courses until this is provided. If not provided by this date, students may be dropped from the program.

For applicants whose GPA is between 2.6- 2.74 the following conditions will be accepted:

  • CBEST: Must show proof of a passing CBEST by the application deadline, December 1, 2020.
  • CSET: Must show proof of one CSET sub test registration for the subject matter they are pursuing by the application deadline, December 1, 2020.
  • Resume and Letter: Students must submit a resume and a letter to CBU’s Admissions & Retention Committee. These documents will be sent directly to the credential program’s admissions counselor, Megan Sais (msais@calbaptist.edu). Students will receive more details about what to include in this letter once transcripts are received.

For applicants whose GPA is 2.59 or lower the following conditions will be accepted:

  • CBEST: Must show proof of a passing CBEST by the application deadline, December 1, 2020.
  • CSET: Must show proof of one passing CSET sub test for the subject matter they are pursuing by the application deadline, December 1, 2020.
  • Resume and Letter: Students must submit a resume and a letter to CBU’s Admissions & Retention Committee. These documents will be sent directly to the credential program’s admissions counselor, Megan Sais (msais@calbaptist.edu). Students will receive more details about what to include in this letter once transcripts are received.

Certificate of Clearance: As far as we understand there has been no interruption with the Certificate of Clearance process. If you experience a delay or obstacle that prevents you from completing this requirement, please contact your admissions counselor so that we can work with you on an individual basis.

If admitted under these temporary admissions procedures, the missing items will need to be submitted via email (or in person when normal operations are resumed) by the listed due dates or admission to the university may be rescinded. Should you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact your admissions counselor.
