SDSU Registration Applications Arrive as Student Investment Expands | Information Center
San Diego State University has set a new record for the number of students seeking college admissions, receiving 76,792 first-year undergraduate applications for fall 2022 — the highest number ever checked in.
That total includes students from all 50 states — with a record number of new applicants from California — as well as 74 countries at a time when many universities across the country are reporting declining admissions during the pandemic. Including freshmen and transfer students, the university received 99,027 undergraduate applications, another record.
“This is an incredibly positive testament to the resilience of students and their families, and the value they place on higher education,” said the SDSU president. Adele de la Torre. “A record number of San Diegans, Californians, and college students around the world see SDSU as their path to a brighter future.”
SDSU has also received over 7,000 graduate applications to date, bringing the total number of applications to over 106,000. The total number of applications is on track to set a new university record.
“It also demonstrates the importance of our growth, and we are growing rapidly,” de la Torre said. “Our campus expansion at SDSU Mission Valley and our new programs at SDSU Imperial Valley will both be essential if we are to deliver on our promise to the incredibly diverse and deserving students on our doorstep seeking opportunity.”
While the application period typically closes in November, the Fall 2022 admissions deadline has been extended to December 15 to support families who have been impacted by COVID-19 and other hardships. The university has started admitting the first applicants and all other prospective students can expect to be notified of their admissions status in March.
