SF State moves up application deadline for transfer students to March 3

Deadlines have passed for first-time freshmen, second baccalaureate students

SAN FRANCISCO, January 18, 2008 -- In light of budget cuts to the California State University system forecasted in the Governor's posted budget for the next fiscal year, San Francisco State University has pushed up the application deadline for all upper division transfer students to March 3, three weeks from the original deadline of March 28. The application period for second baccalaureate students (students pursuing a second bachelor's degree) closed Jan. 17, two months earlier than planned, at the request of the CSU Chancellor's office.

The application period for first-time freshmen applicants to SF State closed Jan. 15. Graduate students will continue to have until May 1 to file their applications, although some graduate programs have earlier deadlines.

The new March 3 deadline will affect students transferring from a community college or other institutions who have completed 60 or more transferable units. The University has been accepting applications from upper division transfer students since Oct. 1.

"We want to accept every student who qualifies for admission, but we also want to be able to offer those students the classes and services they need to graduate," explained Jo Volkert, associate vice president of enrollment management. "The University is trying to ensure that we don't admit more students than we can serve."

Volkert encourages all prospective transfer students to apply for admission well before the deadline and to apply for housing immediately if they plan to live on campus.
