Received invite for Kellogg Honors but not yet sure if he will apply, cause he already has a lot of GE credits

Admitted: CPP, CSUF, CSULA, CSUSB, CSUN, CSUCI, CalLutheran, Univ of Pacific

Where are people getting their decisions? Portal? Can you say where in the portal, very specifically?


You can go on BroncoDirect (beta), click “New Students” on the left, and then “Application Status”.

Ok. Thanks. Yes, that’s where we’ve been looking and the status says “needs documents” but says none in “to-do’s.” And the “needs documents” is not clickable for more info.

For anyone seeing this, do you know the chances of getting off the waitlist? CPP was my number one choice for college and I’m just kind of down about this.

I also don’t know if CPP is looking at the math score for SAT due to engineering being an impacted major. Their website listed it as a supplement. Any info on this would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

No waitlist data for the last few years. Your chances depend upon how many admitted students decide not enroll by May 1.

My daughter’s portal was updated to this:
Admissions Denied, Application Redirected

Do you know what application redirected means?

Mine says the same as well, not sure what it means

I hope someone has some idea on this…
Waiting to hear from other CSUs-SJSU, SDSU and Cal Poly SLO

Perhaps this?

I found this on the CPP website explaining all of the application statuses.

" Based on the self-reported information you supplied on your application, you have met the eligibility requirements for admission to the California State University. However, because our campus is impacted for first-time freshmen and upper division transfer students for [certain majors], your application has therefore been redirected to an alternate campus.

Please allow 2-3 weeks from the time you receive the official notification of redirection to hear from the campus in which your application has been redirected."

Basically, I believe your application was redirected to another Cal State Campus where programs are less impacted.

You can find the website explaining all of this by signing into Bronco direct and clicking on application status help on your application status page.

Thank you @guldms and @ucbalumnus
This helps for sure. Let’s see where she gets redirected when we get the email from them.
We are in California but not local to CPP so it will be interesting to see.
