Future Hornets hoping to attend Sac State as undergraduates in Fall 2016 can start filing applications beginning Thursday, Oct. 1. The filing period is open to high school seniors, college transfer students, and many other groups. Applications are made online through the California State University system at www.csumentor.edu, and more information is available from Sacramento State’s Admissions and Outreach Department, www.csus.edu/admissions or (916) 278-7766.
The deadline to apply is Monday, Nov. 30. Sacramento State and many other CSU campuses will not accept applications after that date.
The CSU's degree database is another useful tool to help students make their college decision. The site, http://degrees.calstate.edu, has a comprehensive list of all undergraduate and graduate programs offered by the CSU’s 23 campuses.
After applications are completed, students might consider filling out a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at www.fafsa.ed.gov. California Dream Act Applications may be filed at https://dream.csac.ca.gov/ beginning in January.
