SUBJECT:

Admission by Exception of Military Servicemembers and Veterans of Military Service - Executive Order No. 1040

Attached is a copy of Executive Order No. 1040, governing the admission by exception of military servicemembers and veterans of military service.

Specifically, the implementation of the policy delineated in Executive Order 1040 will permit campuses to provide access to the university to men and women who have served the nation even though such individual may not meet the usual admission standards of the university. This executive order obviates the need to "count" the exceptional admission of veterans and servicemembers against the allocations of admission quota, which are provided to each campus.

In accordance with policy of the California State University, the campus president has the responsibility for implementing executive orders where applicable and for maintaining the campus repository and index for all executive orders.

Questions regarding this executive order may be addressed to Dr. James C. Blackburn, Director of Enrollment Management Services, at (562) 951-4726 or e-mail at jblackburn@calstate.edu.

Title:

Admission by Exception of Military Servicemembers and Veterans of Military Service

In accordance with the provisions of this executive order, presidents of California State University campuses or their designees may admit not otherwise admissible servicemembers and veterans as indicated below.

Pursuant to the provisions of Title 5 (Sections 40756.1 and 40805.1), campuses may and are encouraged to assess individually candidates for admission, who are "eligible veterans" per the relevant section(s) of the United States Code or active duty servicemembers. Such assessments of potential admissibility may be predicated upon the candidates' schooling, training, readiness for the academic environment, and likelihood of success at the specific campus.

Enrolled veterans and servicemembers admitted under this provision shall not be counted as admission exceptions as defined in Sections 40900 or 40901 of Title 5.
