Questions About Pre-Admission Reviews

When I applied to CSU, I checked yes to a question about criminal conviction or academic disciplinary action. What happens next?

The Assistant Dean of Students will carefully review the explanation you provided on your application. This is called a Judicial Conduct Review. S/he will then do one of three things:

  • Clear your application through the rest of the admissions process
  • Ask you to provide more information about the situation (a police report, for example)
  • Schedule a Pre-Admission Hearing, to be conducted in person at CSU. If you are unable to attend in person, the hearing may be conducted as a conference call.

How long will the Judicial Conduct Review take?

Allow 4-6 weeks. This is a large university with a lot of applicants, some of whom also have a history we must consider.

How can I speed up my Judicial Conduct Review? I need to register for classes.

If you included a written explanation of your criminal or disciplinary history in your application, then you did all you can to expedite the process. If you did not, you can speed up your review by sending an explanation of your criminal or disciplinary history to crscs@colostate.edu. Include your full name and CSU ID number.

Please wait at least four weeks after applying to call our office, if your RAMweb account still shows no completed date beside Judicial Conduct Review. 

May I send a character reference to support my application?

Yes. Send it to 325 Aylesworth Hall NW, Fort Collins, CO 80523-8015 or crscs@colostate.edu.

What happens at a Pre-Admission Hearing?

You will explain and discuss your criminal and/or disciplinary history. The Pre-Admission Committee will then do one of these three things:

  • Clear your application through the rest of the admissions process
  • Clear your application with certain conditions, such as attending alcohol education programs or counseling sessions
  • Decline your application and notify Admissions

Who is on the Pre-Admission Review committee?

Typically the committee includes one or more representatives of the University Counseling Center, the Admissions Office, CSU Police Department, Associated Students of CSU, and Conflict Resolution and Student Conduct Services.

Can I appeal the decision of the Pre-Admission Hearing?

No. The outcome of the hearing is the final decision of the university.
