Guaranteed Admission to CSUSM

The Escondido Union High School District (EUHSD) and the California State University San Marcos (CSUSM) have created a partnership to support college preparation. EUHSD and CSUSM have agreed that a college preparation and guaranteed admission program included under a support alliance, would provide a valuable mechanism for increasing the number and percentage of the district graduates qualifying for admission into California State University San Marcos.  Toward that end, the institutions have developed the MAP/Alliance program to serve students.  Under the MAP/Alliance program, students who met the criteria listed below, may be considered for guaranteed admission to California State University San Marcos.


MAP/Alliance Guaranteed Admission Program Requirements

Those students participating in category of 3 or 4 on the CSU Multiple Measure Evaluation may be accepted.
  2. Have taken the SAT Reasoning Test or ACT (no minimum score is required). CSU campuses have temporarily suspended the use of ACT/SAT exams in determining admission eligibility. Admission requirements (including test scores) beyond Fall 2022 have not been determined.
