Impacted Majors

Selection of major does not impact or influence campus admissions decisions at CSU San Marcos.  Impacted majors have more qualified students interested in declaring these majors than can be accommodated in current courses, therefore screening criteria are used to allow students to declare these majors after students have been admitted to the campus.
