Throughout September, the California State University (CSU) will be hosting “College Night" college fairs across the state, providing any high school or community college students, returning students or adult learners, as well as parents and family members, the opportunity to meet with all 23 CSU campuses in one location.

“With the CSU looking to grow enrollment, the upcoming College Nights are a great way for prospective students to get more information about the opportunities available at the 23 universities in one place," said Ginger Reyes, systemwide director of Admissions and Outreach. “The pandemic limited events like this in recent years, so we are excited to engage with prospective students and their family and friends to help them determine which CSU campus is the best fit for them."

Beginning on October 1, the CSU will begin accepting applications for admission to the fall 2023 term at all 23 universities. Prospective students interested in attending any CSU campus can apply online at the university's application portal: Cal State Apply. Cal State Apply enables all potential CSU incoming freshman, transfer, graduate and international students to apply to multiple CSU campuses with just one application.

Attendees at any College Night session will be given key tips to help navigate the application process, important dates and deadlines, information about financial aid and more. CSU representatives will be ready to share insight on various topics, including:

  • Learning how to prepare for CSU first-year and transfer admissions

  • Tips on completing your CSU application

  • Finding resources to help pay for college

  • Discovering why the CSU is the best value in higher education​
