CSUS restricting applications for spring 2004

With heavy budget cuts of about 13 percent to the California State University system, CSU Sacramento is accepting applications for the spring 2004 semester through the end of August, but only for upper division transfers and education credential students. Other categories of students will need to apply for fall, 2004.

Graduate programs have different deadlines. Visit the graduate studies office website at for a listing of deadlines for graduate programs.

With high enrollment and a tight budget, the University will not offer an extended deadline beyond the CSU system’s August priority filing period for spring semester. Many other CSU campuses are also limiting or cutting off admissions for the upcoming spring.

It is also possible CSUS will not be able to accept all qualified applicants who apply in August. The University is working hard to accommodate as many applicants as possible, but is under strict enrollment growth limits because of this year’s budget cuts.

Students who are not admitted for spring can still apply for next fall. The priority filing period for fall 2004 admissions to all CSU campuses is Oct. 1 through Nov. 30.

More information is available from the University’s outreach office at (916) 278-7362, or online at or

Media assistance is available from the CSU Sacramento public affairs office at (916) 278-6156.
