Open house for prospective CSUSB students set for Oct. 27


High school students interested in applying to Cal State San Bernardino, as well as college and community college students thinking about transferring to CSUSB, are invited to get a first-hand look at the university, meet faculty and staff members, tour the campus and talk with admissions counselors at the university’s annual open house on Saturday, Oct. 27.

Prospective students, their families and the community are invited to learn about the university, its academic and student life programs, financial aid opportunities, and to meet with faculty from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the CSUSB Santos Manuel Student Union.

A separate open house event will be held at Cal State San Bernardino’s Palm Desert Campus on Saturday, Nov. 3.

The open house will be held during the California State University’s priority application period, which runs from Oct. 1 through Nov. 30. Students interested in attending Cal State San Bernardino must apply during this period to be considered for fall 2013 admission.

Fall 2013 applicants to all CSU campuses will not receive an admission decision until after the results of the November election are known. The ballot includes Gov. Jerry Brown’s tax initiative, Proposition 30, which would trigger a $250 million budget cut to the CSU if the measure is rejected.

Guests to the CSUSB open house will have the opportunity to meet with faculty from the university’s five academic colleges and interact with representatives from various campus offices, including financial aid, student housing, student leadership and development and other student support programs.ASR OpenHouse_2012_

In addition, attendees can take tours of the campus, meet with representatives from student clubs and organizations on campus and visit with current CSUSB students.

There also will be workshops on how to fill out applications to the university.
