You must contact GMAC to have your official GMAT scores released to Cal State Apply. Once you do, GMAC electronically sends your scores directly to Cal State Apply. Paper copies are not accepted.
To submit your official GMAT scores to Cal State Apply, go to http://www.mba.com/us and request your scores be sent to the campus-specific code. You must also self-report your GMAT scores in the Standardized Tests section of the application and include your test date and GMAT ID number. It takes approximately 10-12 business days from the date you make the request to post to your application.
Make sure that the name, date of birth, and GMAT ID number on your application match that on your GMAT exam; otherwise, your scores will not automatically post to your account. If you believe there may be a discrepancy, wait until GMAC processes the scores, then contact customer service so they can manually connect the scores to your application.
Official GMAT scores can be received by Cal State Apply at any point during the application cycle, even after your application is submitted; however, some programs may have a deadline by which they want your scores posted. Check with your programs to ensure you meet all deadline requirements. Once your Official GMAT scores are attached to your application, they cannot be removed.
