Lots of students want to get in CSUMB

A record number of students applied to attend CSU Monterey Bay in the fall 2016 semester, spokeswoman Joan Weiner said in an email.

The university received 16,182 freshmen applications by the Nov. 30 deadline to apply, an increase of almost 5 percent from the previous year.

About 4,180 transfer students applied to attend CSUMB in the fall, a 15.3 percent increase from a year earlier.

Because college officials ask CSU to allow them to limit enrollment, only  about 950 new freshmen and 850 new transfer students will be able to enroll, according to Ronnie Higgs, vice president of student affairs.

There are now 7,102 students enrolled.

Overall, the entire California State University system received a record number of applications for fall enrollment, with more than 830,000 applications submitted by prospective students, a 4.8 percent increase and more than 40,000 applications over last year’s total.
