Application and Enrollment Deadlines

Humboldt State is working to remove barriers and to anticipate potential challenges you may face in the months to come. Our departments are here to help and relieve the stress wherever possible.


Fall 2021 Students 

Students interested in these future admission terms are encouraged to schedule an appointment with an Admissions counselor who will provide the most updated information and assist with the application process.

The California State University Chancellor's Office has provided guidance to Humboldt State and other CSU campuses on admission requirements for Spring and Fall 2021 applicants. The Cal State Apply website provides details on adjustments made for First-time Freshman and Transfer students.

General Information  

To expedite the admissions process, please submit official transcripts whenever possible. For an admissions evaluation, you may now email your transcripts to

Email to request a waiver for SAT or ACT test requirements.

In-person campus tours continue to be suspended, but we have virtual options to explore Humboldt State. You can also join us for live webinars with our Admissions counselors to learn more about HSU!
