California State University, Chico is pleased to offer admission for the spring 2013 semester. Beginning Aug. 1, CSU, Chico is one of ten CSU campuses that will accept applications for spring 2013 from applicants who complete an Associate Degree for Transfer (AA-T or AS-T), made possible by the passage of Senate Bill 1440.

In addition, CSU, Chico will accept applications from fully eligible upper-division transfers from the University’s six local community college partners, out-of-state transfers and international students. The Office of Graduate Studies will open to a limited number of graduate programs and to credential students.

Students must apply no later than Aug. 31 at midnight at www.csumentor.edu. The deadline for graduate students is Sept. 15.

Admissions will be closed to first-time freshmen and lower-division transfer students for the spring 2013 application cycle.

“In spite of the state budget uncertainty, we are pleased that we will be able to offer admission to a substantial number of students this spring,” said Allan Bee, director of Admissions. “We expect to enroll between 650-750 new students, and we know that a substantial proportion will be those students who have completed all their pre-requisites at a community college in the North State and need somewhere to continue their education.”

Bee said CSU, Chico’s enrollment target for the 2012-13 academic year is 15,859 students, which is unchanged from the prior year.
