Now that the state of California’s budget has passed, the California State University Chancellor’s Office has announced that campuses in the CSU will be expected to achieve the initial targets given to them in February of this year. For CSU, Chico, that figure is approximately 1,200 new students for spring 2012.

Beginning Aug. 1, CSU, Chico will accept applications for spring 2012 from fully eligible upper-division transfer, out-of-state transfer, international, graduate and credential students. Post baccalaureate students seeking a second bachelor’s in nursing will also be considered. The University will not restrict applications to the local admission area as in recent spring cycles, but admission will be closed to first-time freshmen for the spring 2012 application cycle. Students must apply no later than August 31 at midnight at www.csumentor.edu. The deadline for graduate students is Sept. 15.

“We are pleased that we will be able to offer admission to a substantial number of students this spring. This is especially true for students who have completed all their pre-requisites at a community college and need somewhere to continue their education,” said Allan Bee, director of Admissions.

CSU, Chico’s target for the 2011-12 academic year is 15,523 students.
