The Application Process

In order to be considered for admission, you must file a complete undergraduate application, which can be found in the undergraduate admission booklet. The $55 nonrefundable application fee should be in the form of a check or money order payable to The California State University and may not be transferred or used to apply to another term. Applicants need file only at their first-choice campus. You should indicate an alternative major.

Sonoma State University is a selective admissions campus. Therefore it is important to apply during the designated applications periods.

Wherever possible, we admit students on a rolling basis upon completion of an admissions file. So early application and prompt response to requests for application support documents will speed your admissions notification.

Send official transcripts from each institution of higher education you have attended to SSU; Office of Admissions; 1801 E. Cotati Avenue; Rohnert Park, CA 94928, as soon as you have applied to SSU. If you are applying as an upper division transfer student (60 or more transferable units by the time you enter SSU) high school information is not required.
