View CSU Undergraduate Impacted Programs Matrix(pdf)

An undergraduate major designated as impacted means that the number of applications from fully eligible students to a designated major far exceeds the number of spaces available in the major. All other CSU campuses have majors that are impacted as well. However, students can still be admitted to the major if they meet the supplementary admission criteria. Please refer to the desired major below and review the additional requirements. These are the impacted majors for Sonoma State University.

*As a current Sonoma State student you are able to declare any of the other SSU majors at any time. Please refer to the department of the desired major to declare.
