Do you know the CSU application deadline?

I want to go to university but I need to know the CSU application deadline to check if I still have time to submit my CSU application. Once I know the cal state application deadline, I’ll start getting my papers ready to apply. I visited the CSU portal but I couldn’t find information.

Yes, you still have some time to submit your application. Actually, it is never too late to get your papers ready, as it is never too soon to start looking for information on how to get into college or university.

The application deadline for CSU according to the schedule that appears on its website ( ), is August 21, 2018. This is a date that you can write down to make it easier to remember. You can add it to your agenda or just write it down on a post-it and stick it to your fridge.

Ideally, you will have all the necessary documents at hand and all the required forms filled in early in advance to that deadline. If you start this process early, it is very likely that you will succeed at having a complete application to CSU long before the deadline.

It is never too early to start the application process, especially if you are already studying somewhere else or if you work because time goes by very fast and the closer you are to the application deadline for Cal State, the more nervous you are. And this can be very negative for your application because it may lead you to make mistakes when filling in some forms or when writing your essay for admission.
Higher education centers have become aware of the importance of having a strong presence in the virtual world in order to ease, to some extent, the communication between the institution, its faculty and its students. It is also useful for potential students like you to get an insight of the student’s life on campus.

It is true that you need to be familiar with technology to have a good virtual experience. Sometimes navigating sites with a lot of content, such as the portal of CSU, can be discouraging at the beginning. But once you get used to it, you will see how fast you can find what you look for. If you apply and get admitted into this university, this portal may become one of your favorite ones.

I’m a college student, but not from Cal State. That’s where I wanted to study though, but I took long to have my papers ready and by the time I got all that I needed, the Cal State application deadline was over. I was so sad and angry! I know I should have started earlier but I had to study for all my high school exams and I was tired most of the time because I was working part-time after school. It was a small job that helped me to pay for college. Yes! I managed to get into college, and I still work part-time. And it’s ok. I like my college and I wouldn’t change it or think about going to another college or university. But if you have a college that you like very much, apply as early as you can and don’t ever wait till the last minute.

I got into college last year. I guess that it tends to be a little easier when you don’t choose to apply to the most famous colleges and universities. In my case, since I knew the CSU application deadline, I started to search for all the necessary requirements early. I remember that when I was in high school, my classmates and I talked a lot about universities and colleges and my classmates wanted to apply to most of them. I only applied for two. One was through the CSU portal.
