Spring 2018 Waitlist
CSU Fullerton has established a waitlist for Spring 2018.

Due to our projected enrollments, we are unable to accommodate all qualified applicants for the Spring term. CSU Fullerton’s enrollment numbers are very limited. As a result, we have established a waitlist for the Spring 2018 transfer class. We will determine whether space is available once our admitted students decide to accept their offers of admission. Beginning in mid-November, if it has been determined we have room in our transfer class we will select students from the waitlist based on GPA.

Fall 2018 Waitlist
CSU Fullerton has not yet determined if a waitlist will be establish for Fall 2018.
