That's certainly a more accessible option.  Your current method simply  
won't work at all for anyone browsing without JavaScript enabled.   
While that's usually a small minority, it will be incredibly annoying  
for them to get validation failures on form elements they can't  
possibly change.  How many campuses are in your list?  You may be able  
to make it both accessible and a more responsive UX by loading the  
entire list in the form with markup (e.g. class) references to the  
relevant states, and then hiding the irrelevant options with JS as a  
state is selected.  If that's too many campuses to load up front, I'd  
go with a multi-step form.
