Students interested in attending Sacramento State or any other California State University (CSU) campus in Fall 2019 now have until 11:59 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 15, 2018, to apply for admission.

That date represents an additional two weeks after the original deadline.

CSU extended the Priority Application Deadline by two weeks in response to an overwhelming number of requests following the November wildfires that devastated parts of Butte County and Southern California.

“Sacramento State and the CSU understand the challenges that families are having during this difficult time,” said Charles Cole, senior associate director of Admissions & Outreach. “It is our goal to make sure that every eligible student has the opportunity to go to college and to be successful.”

Additionally, students who experienced direct financial hardship because of the fires – either damage to their home or expenses resulting from their evacuation – may request an application-fee waiver by sending an email to:

Students who already have requested an application extension need not take any further action.
