Many California State University campuses will begin accepting applications for admission to the spring 2015 term on August 1, 2014.  The majority of students who apply for admission during the spring term are transfers from the California Community Colleges including those who have earned an Associate Degree for Transfer (ADT).

“The enrollment across the California State University will continue to grow this year, and we expect to welcome master’s degree candidates, students seeking additional credentials and Associate Degree for Transfer students,” said Ephraim P. Smith, CSU executive vice chancellor and chief academic officer.  “This program is a prime example of the state’s higher education systems collaborating to address California’s workforce needs despite limited resources.”
