Welcome to California State University San Marcos. Today, nearly 17,000 students attend our 304-acre, state-of-the-art main campus in northern San Diego County, and hundreds more attend CSUSM at Temecula in adjacent southwest Riverside County. We are a dynamic, community-engaged University dedicated to teaching the leaders and change-makers of tomorrow via hands-on experiential learning, cutting-edge facilities, and relevant coursework with a global perspective. All of us here, from faculty to staff and administrators, are committed to your success.
Whether you come to Cal State San Marcos directly from high school, transfer from a community college, or arrive after years of working and/or raising a family, you will find abundant opportunities to learn and grow here. I invite you to explore our offerings through this catalog, and we look forward to welcoming you as part of our University community.
