High school seniors hoping to get the college admissions process out of the way before winter break had some help yesterday at SFSU's annual on-site admissions day, Super Monday.
About 600 high school students visited campus to take tours, learn about SFSU's academic programs and learn -- in some cases immediately -- whether or not they were accepted for fall 2003.
"About half of the students who come today wind up attending SFSU," said Frieda Lee, director of student outreach services. "If they come here today, they like us, they want to be here."
Students who submitted applications over the Internet got immediate information on their acceptance, while students who submitted paper applications got their answer within three hours.
Monday was also the first day to apply for on-campus housing.
"We've had about 250 apply for housing," said Philippe Cumia, assistant director of housing marketing and communications. "Once the applications are processed, they pretty much have first choice for housing in Mary Ward and Mary Park halls."
Applications are still being accepted for fall 2003, while applications for spring 2003 must be received by this Friday, Nov. 15.
For details on SFSU admissions, majors and degree programs, costs, financial aid, on-campus housing and student life, visit the prospective students' Web site.
Prospective students interested in on-campus housing are encouraged to submit a housing application before being admitted to SFSU, as space is limited and applications are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. For details, call (415) 338-1067 or visit the housing Web site.
