Campus sees rise in applications, especially online

Applications for admission to the University are on the upswing. The campus received nearly 18,063 applications by the Nov. 30 close of the priority filing period for the fall 2005 semester—a 6 percent increase from the previous fall’s total.

That number includes a high percentage of first-time freshman applicants, says Emiliano Diaz, director of outreach, admissions and records. That’s good news for the University, which saw a drop in new freshman enrollment and new graduate student enrollment in fall 2004.

Diaz says he expects applications will continue to climb through April 1, especially among upper-division transfer students. Most graduate programs are still taking applications as well.

This year’s application figures also saw a significant leap in students who chose to apply online. Diaz says nearly 99 percent of applications to Sac State in the fall were web-based, up from 80 percent last year. It’s a trend that is being seen throughout the California State University System, where as a whole online admissions grew nearly 22 percent from last year.

Students interested in applying to Sac State for the fall 2005 semester can apply online at Graduate applicants should contact the graduate studies office at 278-6470.
