To give students more flexibility amid the coronavirus pandemic, eight of 23 California State University (CSU) campuses will extend their freshman enrollment deadline to June 1 from the earlier date of May 1, reported EdSource.
Students will now have an extra month to send in enrollment deposits thus gaining more time to choose universities.
“We understand this is a very stressful time for students,” said Jessica Wagoner, Cal Poly Pomona’s senior associate vice president of enrollment management and services, to EdSource. “So we wanted to lessen the stress for them and give them a little more time to make such an important decision.”
In addition to Cal Poly Pomona, the enrollment deadlines have been extended at CSU’s Channel Islands, Chico, Dominguez Hills, Humboldt, San Bernardino, San Francisco and San Marcos campuses.
