English Language Proficiency Requirements.  This document explains the English language proficiency requirements for exchange applicants. Test scores should be submitted with the application. CSU campuses may request for original test results to be sent to them directly. 

Declaration of Financial Support.  Applicants are required to complete and submit this form with their application. Applicants should be prepared to submit actual proof of finances (such as bank statements) upon request, after being placed at a campus. This is necessary to show that applicants have liquid funds available to support them while on exchange. The host CSU campus will contact the applicant to confirm the amount of funds needed, explain what constitutes acceptable forms of proof of financial support and advise if other forms are required in order to be admitted to the campus. Documents must be mailed directly to the host campus.
