Because of a fresh infusion of funds from the state, the deadline to apply for admission to Cal State East Bay has been extended for the spring 2011 academic quarters for students looking to resume their college educations at a four-year university.
Lower and upper-division transfer students and graduate students can apply for spring classes until Feb. 1, with those classes starting in March.
The formal deadline to apply for winter classes was Nov. 15. The admissions office, however, will continue to accept applications for winter quarter 2011 -- which starts in January -- on a space available basis.
“Graduate students, as well as undergraduates are encouraged to update their applications if they originally applied for the spring and now would like to be considered for the winter quarter,” said Greg Smith, associate vice president for Planning and Enrollment Management for CSUEB. “Graduate students must also apply and be admitted by the specific department’s graduate program. And students who have not yet applied can now do so.”
Cal State East Bay remains the only public university in the Bay Area able to accept applications for undergraduate admissions for the spring 2011 quarter, thanks to funding of State Fiscal Stabilization dollars from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
Students can apply online by going to the university's home page (www.csueastbay.edu) and then clicking on "Apply Online." Additional information is available by telephone at (510) 885-2784. Admission requirements and application deadlines are available at www.csueastbay.edu/deadlines.
Pre-admission advising appointments are available at Cal State East Bay's Welcome Center on the university's Hayward Campus, 25800 Carlos Bee Blvd. An appointment can be scheduled by calling (510) 885-2556.
“Cal State East Bay is very excited as this news means that we will be able to offer admission to qualified applicants for the spring quarter,” Smith said. “In anticipation of this, we are now accepting applications from upper and lower division transfer and graduate applicants. We hear from our community college and other colleagues that these additional admission opportunities will make a difference in the lives of many students in the local communities.”
