  • Tuesday March 7th 5-6pm.
  • Wednesday April 5th 4-5pm.

Amplify will not have a session on the Choose CSU Admission event Days (December 3rd, Feb 4th, March 4th, April 1st). We encourage you to stop by the College of Natural Sciences Session.

We will host a virtual Roommate Meetup the evening of April 6th. Roommate selection for CSU opens April 4th. This session will be for accepted Amplify students to help try and match with roommates. Amplify students will also have access to the roommate selection process through the Housing portal, and will need to match with another Amplify student in order to live in Pinon Hall. 

During the summer, we will offer Virtual meet and greets for the community and Amplify Cohorts where you can meet other Amplify students, ask questions and get connected before arriving in the Fall! Schedule for these dates will be posted mid-Spring.


We will start reviewing applications no later than Jan 30th. After that, we typically make a decision with submitted applications within 48 hours, but please allow up to two weeks for us to review your application. If you have questions about your application status, please feel free to email us!

No. We review each application carefully, and value the completeness, thoroughness, and thoughtfulness you put into your applications. Upon making our decision about your application, we will notify you via the email you provided on the application. If you are accepted, your name will automatically be sent to University Housing for placement in our community.

Don’t worry! Please contact us at and explain what happened. We will work with you to fix it!

You are welcome to apply to multiple Learning Communities at CSU. However, keep in mind if you apply (and are accepted) into multiple Learning Communities that have a residential component (require you to live in a specific hall), you will have to chose which community you want to participate in. You will be contacted by email and given a deadline to choose which community you prefer to participate in. If you do not respond by the deadline, your spot in either community might not be held.

Move-in date for Amplify is not yet confirmed. 
We are aiming to have our students move in one week before classes. When move-in dates are announced, please register for a Move In arrival timeslot through the link sent out by University Housing late July.

You can find more info here about CSU University Housing Move-in!

At this time, we are only accepting new incoming first year students into Amplify for Fall 2023. However, we encourage you to apply for Year 2 at CSU floor in Alpine Hall. Please contact us if you have questions.
