TURLOCK – California State University, Stanislaus is advising all applicants who have been admitted for Fall 2009 to pay close attention to the enrollment deadlines.
CSU Stanislaus has notified admitted freshmen and transfer students of the importance of turning in their notification of intent to enroll for the fall semester as soon as possible. The earlier deadlines are part of an effort to have students enrolled as soon as possible to help meet California State University system enrollment limits enacted due to the state’s budget deficits. The deadline for incoming freshmen students is Friday, May 1, and transfer students must respond by Tuesday, June 30, or two weeks after being notified of admission to the University.
“Those who do not meet the deadlines are likely to have their admission rescinded,” said Roger Pugh, Associate Vice President for Enrollment Management Services.
CSU Stanislaus is limiting its new student enrollment this year as part of a CSU system response to conform with state budget restrictions. That means the University is likely to have a long waiting list from its more than 4,300 freshmen and nearly 2,000 transfer applicants.
CSU Stanislaus is projecting that it must lower its full-time student numbers for Fall 2009 to align with the enrollment count funded by the state.
Admitted students are advised to check their “MYCSUSTAN” Web site accounts for notices and alerts on enrollment deadlines. They can also contact University Outreach at (209) 667-3070 or visit the University Web site at www.csustan.edu.
