Application Review Process
Communications from Admissions : The university has a policy that all communication regarding the status of your application will be sent via email to your Fresno State email account. Therefore, your acknowledgement letter is the only U.S. mail that you will receive from the Admissions Office until an admissions decision is made. All communications regarding documents or transcripts needed to process your application will be sent via email or will be posted on your Student Portfolio.
