CSUMB sees freshmen applications jump more than 5 percent

Freshmen applications for Cal State Monterey Bay went up 5.3 percent this year over last year, with approximately 15,391 first-time freshmen applying for admission next fall.

The university’s total number of applicants is 12 percent higher than two years ago when 13,753 applied, said Ronnie Higgs, the university’s vice president of student affairs and enrollment services.

CSUMB also had 3,713 upper-division transfers apply, an increase of 1 percent.

It is the first year that the university will limit enrollment, with first priority given to students in the three surrounding counties of San Benito, Monterey and Santa Cruz. Approximately 44 percent of the applicants will receive admission letters to the university.
