California State University system plans to close its doors to qualified students for the upcoming spring term, while fall enrollment numbers will depend on the outcome of a tax initiative, say officials. Only 8 of the CSU campuses will be accepting transfer students this spring, and none of the campuses will be accepting new freshmen. Last year approx. 16,000 applicants enrolled for the spring term out of nearly 70,000 applicants. This year, the number of admitted applicants will be reduced to a few hundred.
