Location InformationMonterey Bay is a small, friendly area with breathtaking vistas. The pristine beaches are perfect for relaxation, and marine wildlife can be seen during any stroll along the coast. Locals enjoy hiking mountains, biking beside the ocean, or sipping local wine. The town is home to a famous aquarium and dazzling golf courses. Located in the center of the California shoreline, CSUMB students have easy access to great destinations like LA, San Francisco, Silicon Valley, and Yosemite National Park.
Helpful InformationUnlike many other California universities, CSUMB allows exchange students to enroll in classes before coming to campus, as long as they have applied by priority deadlines. While we cannot guarantee that you will get into every class you request, this increases the likelihood that you will be happy with your schedule. Please use the current class schedule (csumb.edu/schedule), not the catalog, when choosing courses, and be sure to check that you meet all pre-requisites.
