Fall Preview

Get a Sneak Peek of Student Life!

Fall Preview is a one-day open house and is a great opportunity for students and families to learn more about Humboldt State and everything it has to offer. Meet with our Admissions staff, talk with current students about their own HSU experiences, and get information about academic majors, student activities, and campus resources. This is a free event for all students and their families! 

Instant Admission to Humboldt State University 

For all students who have submitted a California State Application (Cal-State-Apply) for the Fall academic year, you have an opportunity to receive an instant admissions decision during our Fall Preview event. All you need to bring are your official high school or college transcripts and a counselor will evaluate your file. If you’re provisionally admitted, you'll get an official certificate of admission and a free HSU t-shirt to welcome you to the Lumberjack family. Be sure to stop at the photo booth to capture this moment!  


The student-led tours will introduce you to our beautiful campus. Learn about our research facilities, student services, the library, dining halls and more. You'll also be able to take an exclusive tour inside our residence halls and find out more about possible living options.

Discover Arcata

Be sure to visit our local community and explore the incredible outdoor opportunities while you're here. Lonely Planet named our Redwood Coast its #1 place to visit in the U.S. in 2018, and National Geographic Adventure magazine called our hometown of Arcata one of its 50 next great adventure towns. 

If you have any questions, please contact hsupreview@humboldt.edu or 707.826.3510.

Don't miss this chance to experience HSU and be one of the first to know about your admission status. We look forward to seeing you!
