Campus & Major Impaction

Some campuses and majors at the CSU will be impacted, meaning that they have more applicants than openings. This makes admission more difficult. When planning your transfer path, it is important to be aware of which programs are impacted and how that affects admission criteria.

Several CSU campuses give priority to transfer students that attend community colleges in the local area surrounding the CSU. Transfer students should consider applying to CSU campuses within their local area; to find out which CSUs qualify, follow the link below.
