Message from President Harrison: CSUN Proposing Admission Requirement Changes Beginning Fall 2016

For nearly six decades, California State University, Northridge has been a beacon of opportunity for our region. We have educated generations of Californians and launched thousands of successful futures. The university was founded on the principle of access to a high-quality education, and we have stayed true to that foundation.

In recent years, demand for a CSUN education has risen at an incredible rate, while state funding for that education has shrunk. This has created a landscape where more students want to pursue their undergraduate degrees at CSUN than our state and the CSU allows. We have done everything we can to continue to offer a CSUN education to any qualified student, but the CSU system requires — due to the lower level of funding from the state of California — CSUN to not exceed specific enrollment figures

We are at the point where we must change how we manage our enrollment in order to align with the mandate from the CSU system. For this reason, CSUN proposes to implement academic, freshman and transfer-level impaction for undergraduate programs beginning in fall 2016. Read the complete message here.
