For fall the priority application period will be October 1 - November 30.  The rule of thumb is that impacted campuses usually close on the priority deadline.  Non-impacted campuses can stay open past the deadline.  The Dates and Deadline page will show this information - https://www2.calstate.edu/apply/Pages/application-dates-deadlines.aspx

The College is committed to providing reasonable accommodations for students with disabilities to make all learning experiences accessible. The Center for Students with Disabilities (CSD, also known as DSPS) is the official campus office that works to arrange reasonable accommodations for students with disabilities. If you feel you may need accommodations based on the impact of a disability, please contact CSD or DSPS to initiate a conversation about your options at 310-434-4265 or dsps@smc.edu. Contact should be initiated as soon as possible to allow adequate time for accommodations to be arranged.  The Center for Students with Disabilities is located on the 1st floor of the Student Services Center.
