Admission Decision

While you are on our campus, you will have the opportunity to have a one-on-one appointment with an HSU Admissions Counselor who will review your Fall 2018 application & transcripts and inform you of your admission decision to Humboldt State.  On the Spot!


This is a perfect opportunity to tour the campus and our residence halls, meet with our Admissions staff, and connect with current students about their own experiences at HSU. This is a great time to gather information about our academic majors, student activities, and on-campus resources.

Find out for yourself why HSU was only one of six CSU campuses to earn the "Best in the West" title from The Princeton Review.
