Sacramento State student applications increase

From page A4 | December 14, 2012 |

Student applications to Sacramento State for the Fall 2013 semester are up considerably from the Fall 2012 numbers.

When the priority enrollment period ended Nov. 30, 20,667 potential first-time freshmen had applied to the University, up 6 percent (1,171 applicants) from last year.

Applications from potential transfer students rose from 10,739 last year to 12,504 for Fall 2013, an increase of 1,765 students, or 16.4 percent.

That’s in keeping with figures systemwide. A total of 173,985 first-time freshman applications were received at the California State University system’s 23 campuses, compared with 166,028 last year. Transfer applicants rose to 108,726 from 92,806. Potential students typically submit applications to multiple campuses.

Representatives with the CSU Chancellor’s Office in Long Beach say the increase of transfer applicants is partly due to the restriction placed on the number of Spring 2013 applications that will be accepted.

Applications from new students were being held pending the passage of Proposition 30, which averted $250 million in budget cuts. Sacramento State’s applications are currently being processed, and admission decisions are scheduled to be released Friday, March 1.

Emiliano Diaz, director of Sacramento State’s Admissions and Outreach, also credits the University’s community efforts for the increase in applications. “We have worked with our community college partners to ensure transfer students are clear about transfer requirements and the admissions process, and that they are especially well prepared,” he said.

Sacramento State has also promoted its academic programs to high school students and their parents through school visits, campus events and direct communications such as e-mail, phone blasts and the University’s Website, Diaz said.
