It’s the number one most frequently asked question on all of our social media sites, and it says a lot more about you than you think. When will I know if I’ve been accepted? It’s a simple question that isn’t always easy to answer. With budget changes adjusting the number of enrollment spaces, thousands of test scores arriving to be processed by the Admissions office, and dedicated evaluators combing over every application, it takes time to determine your application status. What’s more important, at least from our perspective, is what that question says about you as a potential Aztec.
There is a reason current students and alumni become Aztecs for life. It’s a pride for a rich campus and university life that starts before any of us are officially welcomed into the Aztec family. We can understand the anticipation in waiting to find out if you will be a student at San Diego State. That excitement and enthusiasm is what makes the SDSU campus culture so connected and dynamic. Aztec pride is cultivated from the time you decide that SDSU just might be the place for you.
We want to let you know of the decision just as much as you want to know, so here’s the scoop: Fall applicants will be notified in March 2011. Until then, here are a few tips to help while waiting for your admissions status decision:
Use your WebPortal: The SDSU WebPortal is the first place your admissions status will change, so instead of waiting for the mail, simply log on any time during the day.
Follow all next steps: SDSU’s Admissions Web site contains next step information for first-time freshmen and transfer applicants to ensure a smooth application review process. Make sure you keep your contact information up to date via WebPortal, send in your SAT/ACT test scores, and get a jumpstart on fulfilling the entry-level testing requirements. Completing everything on your end makes things at the Office of Admissions run a lot smoother and quicker.
Pay attention to e-mails from SDSU: E-mail communication from the Office of Admissions often contains important information about the application process. Be sure to read all e-mails from SDSU and follow any next step information or reminders about your application.
Get connected: You’re not alone! There are thousands of other applicants waiting for the decision so get connected on common ground. Start discussions on Facebook or Twitter about what you look forward to in college, why you decided to apply to SDSU, or what major you chose.
