General Impaction Details & Info

In the California State University system, a campus is designated as “impacted” when the number of applications received from qualified students exceeds the number of available spaces. It also means that a campus has exhausted its instructional resources and physical capacity. The final admissions thresholds are determined after the application period has been closed and after receiving all of the undergraduate application for admissions. Those campuses are permitted to use supplementary admission criteria to screen applicants.

All deadlines are taken seriously, applicants must adhere to and meet all admissions deadlines for consideration.

This temporary change of admissions eligibility applies only for the Fall 2021 admissions cycle. Please visit the Multi-Factor Admissions Criteriawebsite for detailed information.
