The records and Admissions deptDec 03 2015Business - Management and Administration
The records and Admissions dept. give no help to a transfer student on what is needed to help complete the transfer. I have called and gone back and forth between Moorpark and CSUN and they just give me the run around saying I still have stuff to complete. Well help me out you can see what stuff it is. SO TELL ME WHAT IT IS AND HOW TO GET IT DONE. They put everything on the student to figure out when they know what is needed and just don't let them know the info.

If they see that you have potential then they'll try their hardest to help you get in. I got rejected from every CSU because I wasn't in their service area and they didn't want to take my A3 requirement. CSUN really helped me out! I think if you have over a 2.5 GPA you're good to go.
