Sacramento State freshmen application deadline moved up

The deadline for incoming freshmen to apply to Sacramento State has been moved to Feb. 1, under a systemwide mandate by the California State University. The new deadline was set in response to a $312.9 million cut to the California State University budget proposed by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger last week.

Sacramento State enrollment targets for the 2008-09 academic year will remain the same as the current academic year.

“We have strong partnerships with high schools in the region,” says Edward E. Mills, associate vice president for Student Affairs, Enrollment and Student Support. “We will be communicating quickly to inform them of this change so they can encourage any seniors who have not applied for fall 2008 to do so before Feb.1.”

Prospective freshmen for the 2008-09 academic year must apply online by 11:59 p.m. Friday, Feb. 1. All final transcripts, test scores and other supporting documents should be submitted as soon as possible. For more information visit www.csus.edu/admissions/applicants.stm.
