TIMING IS EVERYTHING: The California State University has extended the priority application deadline for Fall 2019 admissions to Saturday, Dec. 15.

The deadline was extended in recognition of “many prospective students, their families and communities facing hardship due to wildfires affecting the entire state,” according to a CSU news release.

All 23 campuses began accepting applications for admission to the fall 2019 term through the Cal State Apply website on October 1.

TUNE IN: The winter is a great time to catch up on our CFA podcast, ‘Radio Free CSU.’ 

There are currently seven episodes of the podcast, which focus on our Anti-Racism and Social Justice Transformation principles and work.

Listen to CFA leaders discuss how we are centering anti-racism as part of our mission, that we can be part of the solution to addressing racism, and how a race-class narrative can unite working people.
