Campus: CSU Long Beach -- September 7, 2005
Officials at California State University, Long Beach Open
Admissions for Fall Term to Admit College Students Affected by Hurricane Katrina
Officials at California State University, Long Beach (CSULB) have opened admissions for
its Fall 2005 semester to college students who have been displaced by Hurricane Katrina.
CSULB began its fall class schedule last Monday, Aug. 29.
Late Thursday (Sept. 1), the CSU Office of the Chancellor announced its plan to have all
23 campuses admit these affected students conditionally for the fall 2005 term. Seven
campuses -- Bakersfield, Chico, Dominguez Hills, East Bay, Humboldt, Los Angeles and
Sacramento -- currently have some space available in their fall classes. The remaining
CSU campuses, including Cal State Long Beach, have the option to enroll additional
students. Cal State Long Beach officials have chosen to assist as many students as
Under the Chancellor's plan, admission priority will be given to: 1) California students
who had planned to attend colleges in the Gulf regions of Louisiana, Alabama and
Mississippi; 2) students from the hurricane-affected areas previously offered CSU admission
for the Fall 2005 term; 3) former CSU students enrolled or planning to enroll for the fall
2005 term at a Katrina-affected college or university; 4) students who can document fall
2005 admission to or recent attendance at any regionally accredited college in the areas
impacted by Hurricane Katrina.
Students who have been displaced by Hurricane Katrina and who are interested in enrolling
for classes at Cal State Long Beach should contact Tom Myers in the CSULB Enrollment Services
Office at 562/985-8410 or e-mail him at: firstname.lastname@example.org. After admission, students will
be referred to the Academic Advising Center, which will assist students in setting up a
schedule of classes. Such students are urged to begin attending classes as soon as possible.
Any affected students who contact the campus before Sept. 19 to request admission will be
admitted as expeditiously as possible. Those who contact the campus after Sept. 19 will be
urged to attend a quarter-system campus or to delay their admission until the spring semester.
