how many were actually accepted with that number of 94,000?
Rosie Villafana-Hatcher
23:25
There are approximately 5,000 seats for first time freshmen, SDSU accepts more students, knowing that many students will commit to other universities. So of 94,000 applicants about 10,000 are accepted more or less

28:12
What if I just enrolled in my junior year at Sweetwater?
mmoyna
28:53
If a student wants to major in nursing, should they apply with undeclared major to be eligible for Compact?
Liliana Silva Diaz
28:54

Kae 캐
53:17
Will there be a Compact for Success certificate provided as my senior meets all the requirements?
