Impacted Campuses and Undergraduate Majors
in the California State University, 2014-15
To search for a specific CSU campus or program impaction, scroll down to the online impaction database search.
A CSU campus may institute a policy of campus or undergraduate degree program impaction when the number of
applications received from fully qualified applicants during the initial filing period exceeds the number
of available spaces. These designations use supplementary admission criteria to screen applications.
Campus impaction (otherwise known as campuswide impaction) means that a campus has exhausted
existing enrollment capacity in terms of the instructional resources and physical capacity of the campus.
Because the campus receives more eligible applicants during the initial admission application filing period
than can be accommodated, the campus must therefore restrict enrollment to the campus for a specific
enrollment category (i.e. first-time freshmen or transfers).
For 2014-15, all undergraduate programs, pre-programs, and undeclared/undecided programs are impacted for the
following campuses: CSU Fullerton, CSU Long Beach, San Diego State University, San Jose State University, and
Cal Poly San Luis Obispo.
Campuses that have no impaction at the first-time freshman and upper division transfer levels are “open to all
CSU eligible applicants.”
