Sacramento State sees jump in fall 2008 applications

Applications for fall 2008 at Sacramento State have increased by 6.7 percent overall compared to fall 2007, according to the University’s office of Enrollment Management. The number of admitted students also rose dramatically, with 10,030 admitted students by Jan. 31, as opposed to 4,441 at the same time last year.

A total of 23,580 first-time freshmen, transfer and graduate students applied for admission to the University, compared to last year’s total of 22,092. First-time freshmen for fall 2008 have thus far totaled 16,946, a 7.6 percent change from the 15,744 total for fall 2007.

The application deadline this year for incoming freshmen was moved up to March 1 under a system-wide mandate by the California State University.

The increase in fall 2008 admission was primarily due to increased efforts from Admissions and Records to shorten the turnaround time from application submission to admission.

“We began sending out fall 2008 admissions letters in mid-October,” says Edward Mills, associate vice president for Enrollment Management. “Since then, we’ve been sending those letters out on a rolling basis. Our goal is to let students know within a few weeks of their application submission if they have been admitted.

“We want to help students make their decisions quickly,” Mills says, “so they know what their options are, rather than make them wait.”
