Due to enrollment constraints for the Spring semester, the admissions process for impacted majors will include department review and applicants will be ranked and accommodated according to space availability. Admissions priorities will be in the order that follows:

  • First Priority: Associate Degree for Transfer (ADT) student applicants applying to an approved major 
  • Second Priority: Local service area students
  • Third Priority: Out-of-area applicants

Due to enrollment constraints, we advise students to apply to more than one CSU campus.
