November 30 is Priority Deadline for Fall 2005 Applications

Prospective students wanting to enroll at Sonoma State University in fall 2005 are strongly advised to submit their applications for admission no later than November 30, 2004 says SSU president Ruben Arminana. After Nov. 30, students run the risk of not being admitted to SSU or to other campuses of their choice.

Sonoma is an impacted campus this academic year receiving more applications from qualified students than can be accommodated.

The higher education compact agreed to by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, the California State University system and the University of California provides increased funding for the CSU beginning in 2005-06 through the end of the decade. That means that the CSU will be able to increase student enrollment by 2.5 percent starting in fall 2005.

Students, however, will benefit from applying during the priority application period because campuses will stop accepting applications when they reach their enrollment targets.

Fall 2005 applicants are encouraged to apply electronically by logging onto www.csumentor.edu. CSUMentor is a web-based system that helps students plan and apply to the CSU online. CSUMentor is designed to help students and their families learn about the CSU system, select a CSU campus, finance higher education, and apply for admission. The site offers technical support, course-check, and open and closed campus information.

Students in need of assistance with their electronic applications may call for technical support at 1-800-GO-TO-XAP (1-800-468-6927). The service is open Monday through Friday from 6:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Pacific Standard Time.
