Applications soar for fall enrollment

A record number of students applied to attend CSU Monterey Bay in the fall 2016 semester.

The university received 16,182 freshmen applications by the Nov. 30 deadline to apply. That’s up almost 5 percent from the previous year. The number of transfer students applying to attend CSUMB increased 15.3 percent to 4,182.

Current enrollment is 7,102.

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

“CSUMB has become a first-choice institution,” said Dr. Ronnie Higgs, vice president for student affairs and enrollment services. “Students from the region, California and beyond know that CSUMB will prepare them for success.”
