The university previously announced a series of accommodations for applicants affected by recent wildfires, but the CSU has now extended the entire priority application window to ensure that all applicants have the opportunity to apply to their desired CSU campuses.
All 23 campuses began accepting applications for admission to the fall 2019 term through the Cal State Apply website on October 1.
