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 they can.

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: 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.
