Ready, Set, Apply!

Cal State East Bay – along with the other CSUs – will start accepting applications to the fall 2023 term on October 1, 2022. Students can apply for admission through the Cal State Apply systemwide portal at The priority application period closes on November 30, 2022.


Access For More Students

In fall 2023, the CSU will be able to increase enrollment with significant growth on several campuses.

“In the true spirit of the CSU’s mission to provide an affordable and accessible education, thousands of new seats will be available across the 23 universities this coming fall for incoming first-year and transfer students,” said April Grommo, CSU’s assistant vice chancellor for Enrollment Management Services. “There is no better time to enroll at the CSU, as we have ramped up student success services and redoubled our efforts to guide current, new and prospective students toward obtaining their college degree.”


Impaction Designation Lifted

Some historically high-demand universities will also be released from the CSU impaction designation, allowing access for more students. Cal State East Bay is one of the schools that will no longer be designated as impacted as of 2023-24.

Additionally, highly sought degree programs, such as business, engineering, psychology and kinesiology at many CSUs will now have the capacity to accommodate more students.  


Budget and Program Support

California Governor Gavin Newsom’s 2022-23 spending plan will allow the CSU to enroll an additional 10,000 students, while the continued success of Graduation Initiative 2025 in increasing graduation rates will create ample opportunities for new first-year, transfer, teacher credential and graduate students.
