What you achieve tomorrow is shaped by all you accomplish today. At CSUSB, we prepare our students using active learning, dynamic experiences, and an inclusive environment.

The university serves more than 20,000 students each year, over 600 of which are international students. CSUSB hosts students on two dynamic campuses, one in San Bernardino and the other in Palm Desert California. Every academic program that is eligible has earned national accreditation.

Beyond the classroom, CSUSB students explore California through CSUSB Adventure, volunteer in the community, and gain experiences to prepare for post-graduation through the Career Center and the Inland Empire Center for Entrepreneurship, which has supported over 70,000 entrepreneurs and students.
