When Salinas High School senior Trent Storm submitted his Cal Poly application in November, he became one of nearly 52,000 applicants fighting to be accepted for Fall 2014.
Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger stood by his commitment to restore the California State University (CSU) budget when he signed the state budget pact on Oct 8., making this the first state budget increase since 2007.
After the budget crisis last year denied new student admission in the spring, CSUs will be accepting new students for the Winter/Spring 2011 terms despite the budget not yet being finalized to sustain them. Cal Poly is still uncertain.
