Capitol Alert

The latest on California politics and government

For the fourth year in a row, the California State University has received a record number of applications.

During the application period that ended Nov. 30, nearly 295,000 students applied for fall admission to at least one school in the 23-campus system, CSU officials reported today. That was an increase of 10 percent from last year.

Freshmen applications were up to 173,985 from 166,028, while transfer applications grew to 108,726 from 92,806. Officials attribute the increase in transfer applications to limits they put on transfer admissions this year because of an uncertain budget situation before voters decided on tax increases in the November election.

"Every CSU campus received more applications from first time freshmen and transfer applicants than last year," said a statement from the CSU Chancellor's Office.

University of California officials plan to release application data for their system in January.
