About Us

We welcome you as you begin the search for your university. Whether you are researching where you want to apply, have applied to Sac State, or have been admitted, the staff in Admissions & Outreach is here to assist you on your journey to matriculation.

Our goals are to help you learn about our campus through campus tours, classroom presentations, and publications; to provide the information you need to become a successful applicant; and to  answer any questions you have regarding your admission.
