Shortly after you apply, you will receive log-in information for myHumboldt. MyHumboldt is the home of your Applicant Status Page. On this page you can view admission status updates, apply for scholarships, update personal information, accept admissions and more. Make sure you monitor your Applicant Status Page regularly for updates and new information.

2. Admissions Notification

We’ll send you a letter and an email letting you know to check your Applicant Status Page for your admission decision. It's important to view your updates on your Applicant Status Page so we can provide you with the correct next steps.

While we hope to offer you admission to Cal Poly Humboldt, if your application has been denied some applicants can appeal the admissions decision based on extenuating circumstances.

*The California State University (CSU) no longer uses ACT or SAT examinations in determining admission eligibility for all CSU campuses. If accepted to a CSU campus, ACT or SAT test scores can be used as one of the measures to place students in the proper mathematics and written communication courses. Visit the CSU Student Success site for further information on course placement.

If you have taken any exams (such as AP, CLEP, or IB) that you wish to get college credit for please also submit these scores. Not all exams receive credit, please visit the Credit by Examination page of our academic catalog for a complete list of exams, passing scores, and credit earned.
