Student Registration

May-June Intersession 2020 runs between May 18 - June 5, 2020.

Who may register for an Intersession Class?

You are not required to be formally admitted to the university to take an Intersession class. If you are 18 years of age or older or are a high school graduate and have met course prerequisites, you may register for an Intersession class. Matriculated and disqualified students, as well as the public, may take Intersession classes.    

If you expect to complete degree or credential requirements through Intersession, you should confirm with your advisor regarding course applicability. Registration in Intersession does not ensure registration for, or admission to, the university, nor should it be interpreted as acceptance to any degree or credential program. If you are interested in formal admission to California State University, Fresno, contact the Office of Admissions, Records and Evaluations at 559.278.2261.
