Are you asking yourself "when will I know if I've been admitted?"

I hope everyone had a wonderful new year. I want to keep you all informed of what is happening with your application if you’ve applied for fall 2011. Our office received a record number of applications so now our transfer Evaluators and first-time freshman Coordinators are busy processing those 20,000+ applications.

What happens next?
In addition to processing applications, we are awaiting funding information that will determine how many students we are able to accommodate for fall 2011. Due to this fact, thousands of you have not heard whether or not you have been admitted. Offers have started going out and will continue to do so on a rolling basis. My advice: Be patient, always have a back-up plan, and check your Student Services Center within your CSU, Chico Portal Account often because your admission status will be updated there as soon as it is determined.

Thank you for your impressive applications. I wish you the best of luck as you begin to hear back from colleges! I’m leaving you with some helpful reminders…

  • Have you initiated your Chico Portal account? If so, check your campus email often… if you haven’t, be sure to check your personal email.
  • Send your SAT or ACT scores (for first-time freshman {FTF}) 
  • Take the EPT/ELM if required (FTF)
  • Reminder: You may not use summer work after high school graduation or spring 2011 courses to meet admission requirements
  • Fill out your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by the priority date of March 2
