The Long Beach-based California State University system Tuesday extended its fall 2021 application deadline to Dec. 15 to accommodate students coping with the coronavirus pandemic.

The application deadline was originally this Friday.

Applications for any of the CSU campuses can be submitted online at

Prospective students were also encouraged to explore CSU financial aid options after applying, with officials noting that 80% of all CSU students receive some form of financial aid.

The University of California system on Monday extended its application period, not because of the COVID-19 pandemic, but due to a problem with the online application portal. The UC application deadline for fall 2021 was originally Monday, but it is now 11:59 p.m. Friday.
