The Cal State University (CSU) priority application deadline for Fall 2019 admission was extended from Nov. 30 to Dec. 15 as many prospective students and their communities are facing hardships due to the Camp and Woolsey wildfires.
CSU spokesperson Elizabeth Chapin said accommodations were also given to students last year due to fires, including application extensions upon request.
The application first opened Oct. 1 for all 23 campuses.
Chapin said this year’s extension is being applied to all CSU applicants because of the overwhelming quantity of requests they received for individual extensions. Students who have experienced direct financial hardship, which includes the loss of a house or unexpected expenses due to evacuation, may also request an application fee waiver.
The CSU officially extended the priority application window for all applicants to ensure they all have equal opportunity to apply to their desired CSU campuses. However, Cal Poly does not have priority applications.
