Increasing enrollment, California budget crisis cause University to establish earlier deadline

SAN FRANCISCO, March 19, 2003 - San Francisco State University has set May 1 as the deadline for prospective undergraduate students to submit their applications for fall 2003 admission.

Due to an anticipated increase in enrollment and uncertainty of the University's budget relating to California's fiscal crisis, SFSU established the earlier deadline. This ensures that the University does not admit more students than it can adequately serve, said Jo Volkert, associate vice president for enrollment planning and management.

SFSU's enrollment was 28,378 last fall, an increase of 5.6 percent over fall 2001 and the University's largest in more than a decade. SFSU's enrollment this semester is 27,871.

To receive an admissions decision more quickly, prospective students are encouraged to apply online at: Online applications must be completed and submitted no later than 11:59 p.m. Thursday, May 1.
