Public Hearings on Impaction

Updated Admissions Criteria

Humboldt State University anticipates the need to remove some of the selective admissions requirements for incoming freshmen and students applying to the Environmental Resources Engineering academic program, beginning with those planning to enroll in Fall 2019.
The proposed changes are a result of available capacity for new freshman students and a decline in applications to the Environmental Resources Engineering program.

These changes would create access for all incoming freshmen applicants and transfer and freshmen applicants in Environmental Science.

HSU will hold a series of three public hearings on the plan to implement these updated admissions requirements. At these hearings, participants will be able to hear directly from the HSU Interim Director of Admissions, ask questions and share feedback. All comments will be considered as HSU decides how to best serve students from the local area, throughout California and beyond.

Comments may be submitted at any of the three hearings, or by using the form on this page. Comments are due no later than March 9, 2018. They will be posted for public review on this website, along with the full name, title and organization of the commenter. Contact information will not be posted.
