San Francisco State University -- October 17, 2003
SFSU priority application period now open through Nov.
Prospective students advised to submit fall 2004
applications to increase chances of admission
Students intending to enroll at San Francisco State University in
fall 2004 are strongly advised to submit their applications for admission
no later than Nov. 30.
Academically qualified students who apply for undergraduate admission
by Nov. 30 increase their chances of being admitted to SFSU. After that,
students run the risk of being turned away. Students who intend to transfer
to SFSU from another college or university for fall 2004 must have at
least 56 units of transferable college credit.
“Taking into account the unfortunate situation with the California
budget, the University is committed to admitting and enrolling as many
students as the budget allows while maintaining the academic program,”
said Jo Volkert, associate vice president for enrollment planning and
management. “While we have not yet established a firm deadline
for fall 2004 applications, we strongly advise students to submit their
completed applications by Nov. 30, online at CSUMentor.edu, to receive
a decision more quickly and increase their chances of admission.”
Volkert noted that the nursing, cinema, and radio and television programs
will only accept undergraduate applications through Nov. 30.
SFSU’s enrollment this fall is its largest ever, at 29,709. Because
of the state’s budget crisis and deep cuts to education, all campuses
in the California State University system will be forced to limit the
number of students admitted next year. Therefore, many CSU campuses,
including SFSU, will likely stop accepting applications earlier than
in past years.
Deadlines for submitting graduate applications remain the same as in
past years. The deadline for spring 2004 admission is Nov. 15, and for
fall 2004 admission, May 15, 2004. Certain graduate programs have earlier
deadlines and require an additional application. For details, visit:

Prospective students interested in on-campus housing are encouraged
to submit a housing application before being admitted to SFSU, as space
is limited and applications are accepted on a first-come, first-served
basis. For details, call (415) 338-1067 or visit: www.sfsu.edu/~housing.
