Application Instructions


Submit the Online Application

This is the first and most critical step to be completed.

Online application

In order to submit your online application, you will be required to pay a $55 non-refundable application fee via debit/credit card.

On page 8 of the online application, you will download the following:

  • PreSLP Statement of Intent

You must complete, and then attach the following documents to the online application. Online applications submitted without these completed attachments may not be considered:

  • PreSLP Statement of Intent
  • Resume
  • Copy of unofficial academic records/transcripts from any/all academic institutions you have attended in the past.

Mail Additional Items

Send the following items in ONE PACKAGE directly to the exact address below. Using other CSUN addresses will result in your application not being received at the correct location and can delay the application process thus omitting your application from the pool of complete, on-time applications.

Tseng College
ATTN: Pre-SLP Program
California State University, Northridge

18111 Nordhoff Street
Northridge, California 91330-8352

  • Original/Sealed official academic records/transcripts from any/all academic institutions you have attended in the past. This includes community colleges and institutions where you completed post-baccalaureate work. Do not open transcripts before forwarding them to CSUN.
  • Three recommendations using this Recommendation Form. All recommendations must be in a sealed envelope with the flap signed by the recommender. Forms MUST accompany any letters.

All application items must be received at CSUN by the application deadline. No exceptions will be made. It will be the responsibility of the applicant to verify the status update of received application materials.


Activate CSUN Email Account

Activate your CSUN online access and check your CSUN email account regularly.

You are issued a CSUN email account when you apply to the University. Your CSUN email account serves as your official email account with the University. This means that the University will use it for official communications and you are responsible for monitoring this account. All updates on your application status will be sent to your CSUN email account only.

You should receive a letter from Admissions and Records with your CSUN User ID/Username, initial password, and CSUN email address roughly one week after submission of your application. More information about activating your account is available in the online application to this program. You may use the information below to access your CSUN account for the first time and to log into your CSUN email.
