    if you are transferring from a community college, it is a good idea to get a transfer degree so that you can skip the lower division ges. before you decide on which transfer degree you should pursue, make sure that the degree and concentration are accepted by the university because they may not accept the exact degree that you are transferring with, thus leading to you having to take more lower division ges.

    Since the school sends acceptance letters very early, make sure to send in all your materials as soon as possible. In addition pay close attention to the Fullerton mail you receive before and even after if you get accepted. You may be sent opportunities to join things like the Honors Program or Freshman Programs, and these programs require you to accept the offer before the school year starts. Also, make sure you have your financial aid in order before you begin your year. Trying to figure out your financial aid ( loans, scholarships, etc) is absolutely awful. Make sure you have any scholarships sent over at least 2 months before the school year starts if you expect to apply them your first semester there. It takes about a month and a half to have a scholarship posted to your account. The departments don't communicate with each other, and you may end up telling twenty different people your same problem.

    If you live on campus bring your car, know someone who has a car, get used to walking, or have fun paying for uber. If you don't dorm, be warned... parking is horrible!

    CSUF is definitively a commuter school. Even living on campus the school, the school is dead during the weekend. The classrooms are not as big as other schools. From my first semester I can say that I managed to get to know my professors, and they were all nice. The classes aren't super difficult either, but that can be either good or bad for someone that really wants to challenge yourself. There are freshman programs as well, the only thing most people like from them is the free printing. Freshman programs aren't that great though, they made us feel like lost freshman high school students. As well, being in a freshman program requires you to take University 101, everyone I knew that took that class found it to be a waste of time. University 101 doesn't really count for anything. Also, freshman programs tell you to only take 4 classes (12 units) because they tell you it's going to be too difficult, which is a total lie, taking 4 classes was too easy. Besides, if you only take 4 classes per semester will make you end up graduating in 6 year.
