Nov. 30 Deadline for Fall 2004 Freshman Applicants

Students who plan to apply for admission to Cal Poly Pomona in fall quarter 2004 are strongly encouraged to submit their applications before the Nov. 30 deadline, preferably through the CSU Mentor Web site at

?We expect the demand for access to Cal Poly Pomona to reach an all time high,? says university President J. Michael Ortiz. ?For students to receive full consideration for admission, it is essential that we receive their applications no later than Nov. 30.?

Despite anticipating higher demands for admission, the state Legislature notified the California State University that its 23 campuses should not expect any additional funding for enrollment growth next fall. In an effort to maintain educational quality for current and prospective students, supplemental criteria using an eligibility index (using the SAT I or ACT score and high school grade point average) will be applied to first-time freshman applicants from non-local schools.

Cal Poly Pomona will continue to admit all fully CSU eligible first-time freshman applicants who graduate from high schools in Cal Poly Pomona?s local service area on the basis of CSU admission eligibility criteria. All other first-time freshman applicants will be rank-ordered by eligibility index. The academic characteristics of the freshman applicant pool will determine the eligibility index cut-off and may vary from year to year.
