CSU Offers Additional Time For Applicants Impacted By Wildfires

SACRAMENTO (CBS SF) – California State University will accommodate applicants affected by the California wildfires, university officials announced Tuesday.

Those affected by the recent wildfires in Northern and Southern California who are applying for admission to CSU campuses for the fall 2019 term can request an application deadline extension and an application fee waiver for up to four campuses.

All 23 CSU campuses are accepting applications through the Cal State Apply website until Nov. 30, the priority deadline. The application deadline will be extended to Dec. 15 if extension requests are made before the priority deadline.


To file an extension request, applicants can email with the subject line “Extension Request – Fire Event.” The request must include the student’s full name and unique CAS ID number, according to CSU officials.

Boeing To Donate $6M To Iowa State Student Innovation Center

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Officials say Iowa State will use a large portion of a $6 million gift from Chicago-based Boeing Co. to help fund construction of the Student Innovation Center.

The 140,000-square-foot (13,006 square meters) center on the Ames campus is expected to be finished in January 2020.

The university says the center will elevate Iowa State’s commitment to interdisciplinary, experiential learning and enrich the learning experience for students. It also is intended to serve as the hub for hands-on projects where students can collaborate across a wide range of disciplines.

Part of the money provided by the Chicago-based aerospace company will provide financial support for engineering students wishing participate in undergraduate research.
