Campus Selection Process • Cal State Fullerton is impacted at the FTF and UDT levels.

Students who miss a stated deadline may have their application cancelled or their admission rescinded. • We send hard copy application acknowledgments and provide students with a campus assigned email and personal portal login information. From that point forward, we communicate with students electronically. If we need further information from them, we put it on their portal or we send them an email.

If a student was not offered admission, or if their application was withdrawn because of a missed a deadline, it is unlikely that our decision will be reversed on appeal. However, if a student has significant extenuating circumstances and wishes to appeal our decision, they can download information on our process at http://www.fullerton.edu/admissions/appeals/
