Applications for Admission to Cal State Fullerton for Fall 2004 Will Be Accepted Beginning Oct. 1


August 4, 2003 :: No 12

Prospective university students intending to apply for admission to Cal State Fullerton are urged to mark their calendars for Oct. 1 — the start of the university’s next application filing period.

The initial filing period that had been scheduled to open today for prospective students eyeing Cal State Fullerton for next spring has been canceled — a casualty of state budget cuts. No new students will be admitted for the spring 2004 semester that begins in January.

“While this is a setback for prospective students, it allows us to preserve academic quality and the ability for our current students to graduate in a timely manner,” said Dr. Ephraim Smith, vice president for academic affairs at Cal State Fullerton.

The filing period that opens Oct. 1 is for those seeking admission to the university for the fall of 2004.

“Web-based applications are heartily encouraged,” said Jim Blackburn, director of admissions and records. “Prospective students who submit their applications online will learn of their admission status much more quickly than will those who submit a paper application,” he noted.

Those seeking admission may apply online beginning Oct. 1 at www.csumentor.edu.

“Early application is encouraged, as some categories may close earlier than others, due to limited resources,” said Blackburn.

Meanwhile, incoming students who applied last year for admission to CSUF and were accepted, will join returning students Aug. 25 for the start of fall semester classes.

A record 32,143 students were enrolled for fall 2002; an estimated 32,400 are expected this fall.
