The proposal is the result of ongoing state budget cuts and a record number of undergraduate applications.
Friday, the university will hold the first in a series of public meetings to discuss the proposed changes that would start in the 2013-2014 academic year.
The Cal State Board of Trustees is expected to vote on the policy change later this year.
Among the changes being considered to the admissions guideline are: emphasizing major-specific academic criteria for admission; continuing to admit local freshmen and transfer applicants with likelihood of degree completion; and increasing outreach to communities with historically low rates of college attendance.
