If you are pursuing admission to a Master’s or PhD program, contact your intended department to find out more about your application status.

What is RAMweb?

RAMweb is the CSU student portal where you will check your application status and — once admitted — complete most student actions, such as registering for classes, reviewing your financial aid award, checking your grades, paying your bill, and more.

You’ll need an eID to access RAMweb. Your eID consists of a username and password, and it will stay with you throughout your CSU experience.

Create your eID in 3 easy steps

After you submit your application for admission, you will be prompted to create your eID. Follow these steps to create your eID and gain access to RAMweb and your applicant status page.

Receive your CSU ID

Within three (3) days after you’ve submitted your application, you’ll receive an email with the 9-digit CSU ID necessary to create your eID. 

Create your login

Go to the eID create website to enter your CSU ID, identifying information, and desired username and password. You’ll be prompted to answer security questions in case you ever need to restore your password.


Wait for authentication

Allow up to one hour for your eID to be authenticated before you can access your applicant status page. We’ll send you a confirmation email when the process is finished.

Check your application status regularly

Once you’ve created your eID, use it to log in to and click on “Check your Application Status” at the top of the screen.

Materials you’ve submitted are not instantly matched to your application.

  • Allow 3-5 business days for documents submitted electronically to be matched to your application and reflected as received.
  • Allow 5-7 business days for documents submitted by mail to be matched to your application and reflected as received.
  • Check with us before re-sending any documents.

If you’ve started but not submitted your application and need log back in to continue your application, find the links on your application guide.

Your university email account

Creating your eID also activates your university email address, which will become the primary email address for other University offices to contact you. Log in to your university email account as soon as you create your eID to authenticate. Then either check this account regularly or set up forwarding rules to an account you use more frequently.
