Student Outreach and Recruitment

Welcome to Student Outreach and Recruitment (SOAR). We’re here to help you imagine your future as a Matador and support you throughout the process of joining the CSUN family.

Here, you can arrange to meet with preadmissions counselors, explore options for campus tours, and connect with our outreach interns (during spring and fall semesters) to learn the ins and outs of CSUN student life directly from CSUN students.

In-person and virtual preadmissions appointments are available year round, and we encourage you to learn more about CSUN by taking a guided tour or exploring our beautiful campus on your own via a self-guided tour. You can also check out our comprehensive virtual tour, available in both English and Spanish.

If you’re a high school or community college counselor, sign up for our counselor newsletter to receive important updates and resources to share with your students.

Preadmissions Counseling

So, you’re considering becoming a Matador. That’s great! We’re excited to welcome you to the CSUN community.

It’s normal to have questions. “Is CSUN right for me?” “What classes do I need to get in?” “How do I complete my Cal State Apply application?” “What’s student life like?”

Our preadmissions counselors have answers!
