The Best CSU Schools Ranked – 2023 (2023)

Residents of the state of California are blessed with an embarrassment of public university riches. In addition to the exceptional University of California (UC) schools (see UC rankings here), there are an additional 23 universities housed within the California State University system. Our list of the Best CSU Schools Ranked will also share data such as: Undergraduate Enrollment, the Number of Freshman Applicants, Acceptance Rate, the average GPA of accepted applicants, and the Transfer Acceptance Rate. In creating these Cal State rankings of all 23 undergraduate degree-granting schools, we want to make crystal clear that all 23 have something positive to offer academically AND come at a bargain price. In fact, two years after graduating, CSU grads from all campuses enjoy an average salary of $50k; ten years later, the mean figure rises to $79,000.

Our rankings are based on selectivity, the number of standout academic programs, career services offerings, and postgraduate outcomes. Again, we encourage our readers not to make too much of the numerical ranking of the schools. These rankings can be a useful tool when trying to take in the admissions landscape, but this doesn’t mean you should automatically pick the 9th-best school over the 13th-best. Rather, we recommend using these rankings only as a starting point as you investigate the CSU campus that will best suit your unique academic and career goals.

To provide a quick reference, our Best CSU Schools Ranked are as follows:

1) Cal Poly SLO
3) Long Beach
4) Cal Poly Pomona
