All 23 California State University campuses began accepting applications Oct. 1 for admission to the fall 2016 term and are being encouraged to apply online at www.csumentor.edu. The application deadline is Nov. 30, 2015.
High school seniors and community college transfer students are advised to apply early. After Nov. 30, most CSU campuses will stop accepting applications.
Applicants are also encouraged to apply to more than one campus to increase their likelihood of admission. The CSU Mentor website includes a comprehensive degree database detailing the undergraduate and graduate degree programs offered at each campus, as well as information about the campus community, student housing and campus life.
After applying to the CSU, students should complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid. More than half of all CSU undergraduates receive enough financial aid to cover the full cost of their tuition fees.
