Fall 2015 Applications

We are no longer accepting applications for the fall 2015 semester.

Spring 2016 Applications

We are uncertain at this time if we will open for spring 2016. Please check back for further updates. We are an impacted campus for upper-division transfer students. If we are able to accommodate students from outside our local admission area, they may be held to a higher GPA requirement in addition to meeting general CSU transfer admission requirements. That GPA requirement will be based on the characteristics of the applicant pool.
