I understand that the university will evaluate my transcripts to determine the courses and units required to earn my degree. Enclosed is the information on my prior college level courses and the application fee. The university will advise me of the courses needed, my degree plan, and my total tuition costs.
I have received a copy of the university's catalog. I have read and fully understand the refund policy and other university academic, administrative and financial policies and procedures. I further understand that the academic program is delivered via an online format.
I understand that California Southern University (CalSouthern) must receive official transcripts of my high school or GED records or prior college-level coursework. The official transcripts must be received by the university in order to finalize my admission to the university. If I am unable to fully document any potential transfer credit, no such credit will be accepted and I will be required to complete additional courses, either at California Southern University or elsewhere, and I will be responsible for additional tuition.
I declare that the coursework I will present to the university will be entirely my own work and that I will fully acknowledge the source of work adapted from other sources. I understand that the university bases its course grading and awards degrees on this representation, and that if I have misrepresented my coursework, the university may revoke my course credit and degrees awarded to me on the basis of that material.
I understand that all fees and tuition must be paid in full prior to graduation, and that a degree cannot be awarded, nor transcripts released until all outstanding tuition and financial obligations have been cleared with the university’s accounting department.
I understand that the courses and programs offered by the university are not intended to qualify me for licensure or registration in any state, governmental jurisdiction, or licensing authority except in the following cases: The Board of Psychology of the State of California accepts California Southern University's Doctor of Psychology (PsyD) degree as meeting the educational requirements for licensure as a psychologist in California. Persons interested in licensure are advised to contact the Board of Psychology in Sacramento, California to determine what other requirements may exist for licensure. The Board of Behavioral Sciences in the State of California accepts California Southern University's Master of Arts in Psychology (MA) degree as meeting the educational requirements for licensure as a marriage and family therapist and professional clinical counselor in California. Persons interested in licensure in California or any other state are advised to contact the appropriate regulatory bodies in their state to obtain a complete listing of all requirements for licensure. The Committee of Bar Examiners (CBE) of the State Bar of California has authorized registration of the university’s School of Law, which enables our graduates to sit for the California Bar Examination.
