California State University San Marcos said Monday it received a record number of applications for the fall term of 2018.
The university received 17,369 applications from prospective first-time freshman — a 6 percent increase from last year.
The number of freshman applications equals the total enrollment at all levels at the 28-year-old North County university.
Also received were 8,927 fall 2018 transfer applications — a 4 percent increase from fall 2017.
“CSUSM has once again distinguished itself as a first-choice institution,” said university President Karen Haynes. “Students from our region and beyond know that CSUSM is an academic community like no other that will prepare them for success while also offering opportunities for personal growth and leadership.”
Fall 2018 applicants can expect to receive notification of acceptance by the close of January 2018.
