CSUS offers priority admission
growth in the CSU system has been restricted by state budget cuts, qualified
high school seniors can get an early admission decision to California State
University, Sacramento if they act quickly.
Seniors can get priority for admission to CSUS in fall 2004 by attending Priority
Admission Days, on either Oct. 25 or Nov. 8.
They’ll be among the first of thousands of new students to be admitted
next year, despite the new enrollment limits. That’s largely because about
5,000 students will graduate this year, making room for newcomers.
To participate in priority admissions, prospective students must first complete
an online application at www.csumentor.edu,
pay the application fee and get a confirmation number. Then they can make an
appointment with an admissions representative at www.csus.edu/outreach/pad.
Applications and appointments must be made at least 15 days prior to the Priority
Admission Day the student will attend. For Oct 25, the deadline is Oct. 10;
for Nov. 8, the deadline is Oct. 24.
During the two Saturdays admission representatives will review the student transcripts
and test scores, and admit those who qualify.
Students should bring these items to the appointment:
• A copy of your appointment confirmation
• A copy of high school transcripts
• SAT or ACT test scores, if available
CSUS is the sixth largest of the 23-campus California State University system,
enrolling nearly 29,000 students while maintaining a commitment to small classes.
It offers 60 undergraduate programs and 40 graduate programs.
