Postby vivianf » Tue Sep 18, 2012 4:04 pm

California State University, Fresno, will begin accepting applications for admission for the fall 2013 semester on October 1, 2012. Please read the following information regarding categories open for admission and application deadlines.

Application Filing Period
The CSU Priority Application Filing Period for Fall 2013 admission begins on October 1, 2012. See application deadline dates below.

Fresno State will accept applications from
• new first-time freshmen (Application deadline is November 30, 2012)
• new upper-division transfers (Application deadline is November 30, 2012)
• returning undergraduates (Application deadline is February 1, 2013)*
• postbaccalaureate and graduate students (Application deadline is April 1, 2013)*

*The application filing period for all categories can close after November 30th, 2012 without prior notice.

We are closed to: lower division transfers, unclassified postbaccalaureate students, and students seeking a second baccalaureate degree or major (except Nursing applicants).

Campus Impaction
Fresno State is impacted at the freshman and transfer level. Our campus will not have enough space to accommodate all eligible students and the campus will utilize supplementary admission criteria for out-of-area applicants. Additional information regarding campus impaction is available at the Admissions website at: The Nursing and Athletic Training majors are impacted at the upper-division level and supplementary criteria will be used for admission determinations.

Closed Major
The Social Work major will be closed to all new undergraduate applicants for fall 2013 because it does not have capacity to accommodate new students. This decision is a moratorium for fall 2013 only. Students interested in pursuing a Social Work major are encouraged to consider applying to other CSU campuses for fall 2013. Fresno State students admitted for fall 2013 will not be able to change their major to Social Work after enrollment.

Enrollment Capacity
Admission will be based on a space available basis. Due to the state's budget crisis and the uncertainty of funding for California higher education, offers of admission will not be made until after the November 30, 2012 application deadline. Enrollment capacity for fall 2013 will be dependent upon the outcome of the California general election on November 6, 2012.

Online Application: Students may apply for fall 2013 admission starting on October 1, 2012. The online application for admission can be found at:
