Step 1: Applying to the ARPE Department

Step 2: Applying to the University's Graduate Division

  • Submit the Cal State Apply application by March 1, 2021 and submit all materials by April 1, 2021 for the on-campus program.
  • Submit the Cal State Apply application by August 1, 2021 and submit all materials August 1, 2021 for the distance program.

  • Official transcript(s) in sealed envelopes by August 1, 2021 for the distance program.
  • TOEFL Test Scores (for International Students only)

Step 3: Campus Interviews

  • All applications will be initially reviewed by Rehabilitation Counseling Program faculty. Following this review, a select group of students will be invited to interview for admission to the program. Applicants will be interviewed by a Rehabilitation Counseling Program faculty member. Interviews are held once an applicant's materials have been submitted (i.e., both to Cal State Apply and to the Rehabilitation Counselor Program Application for Admission). Interviews typically occur February through May, but are sometimes conducted earlier once all materials have been submitted and the applicant is determined to be eligible for admission consideration.

Step 4: Consideration for Stipend Funding

  • Stipend funding from the Rehabilitation Services Administration may be available to qualified applicants. Please contact us for further information.
