I Was Not Admitted

If you have been notified that you were not admitted to Sacramento State, please take a moment to review the CSU eligibility requirements and compare them to your own academic accomplishments. It is our hope that you continue to strive to meet the CSU eligibility requirements and that we see you at Sacramento State in a future term.

Appeal Request

Applicants to Sacramento State who do not meet academic admission requirements may request further consideration by submitting information which demonstrates their potential for academic success at the University. For a small percentage of prospective freshman and transfer students, their academic eligibility may be weighed alongside other criteria such as: first generation college status, socioeconomic factors, an indication of overcoming educational hardship, skills or talents that align with or contribute to University programs or enrich the educational experience of the campus community.

Please note:

  • You can only submit one appeal per application cycle.
  • A withdrawn application or rescinded admission due to a missed deadline is not eligible for reconsideration.

For consideration of an appeal, you must submit the appeal request and any required supporting documents within 15 days of the notice of ineligibility.  The committee will reply with a final decision within 3 weeks of receipt of the completed appeal request.
