New requirements may make entrance to Cal State Long Beach more difficult
LONG BEACH, Calif. (KABC) -- It could soon be more difficult to score an acceptance letter from California State University, Long Beach, as the school plans to change its entrance requirements.
The proposal is the result of ongoing state budget cuts and a record number of undergraduate applications.
Friday, the university will hold the first in a series of public meetings to discuss the proposed changes that would start in the 2013-2014 academic year.
The Cal State Board of Trustees is expected to vote on the policy change later this year.
Among the changes being considered to the admissions guideline are: emphasizing major-specific academic criteria for admission; continuing to admit local freshmen and transfer applicants with likelihood of degree completion; and increasing outreach to communities with historically low rates of college attendance.
