Proposing a Course
Step By Step Procedures
- Consult with your Department Chair about the course you wish to offer
- Complete the Course Proposal Form
- Obtain Department Chair and Dean signatures and submit the course proposal form to the Division of Continuing and Global Education no later than September 22, 2017.
- Follow up on the progress of the form with the Intersession Coordinator, at 278-0333 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Changes to Your Course
If changes need to be made to your class following your dean’s final approval, please contact the Intersession Coordinator to implement the changes. Some changes may require the proposal to go through the approval process again.
Textbook orders for Winter Intersession should be placed directly by each instructor to the Kennel Bookstore by October 31, 2017.
Marketing Your Intersession Course
The Division of Continuing and Global Education will list the course information on the CGE website. Campus emails will be distributed to Fresno State students notifying them of Intersession. Posters will be distributed to each Intersession instructor; we encourage faculty to display the posters in locations where students will see them.
The enthusiasm of the individual instructor, however, is what actually convinces students to enroll. Please know the “target audience” for your class and promote it to those potential students. Tell students in your current classes about your Intersession class, and ask your colleagues to mention your Intersession class to their students as well.
Student Registration Information
Student registration information is available online.
Each instructor will be contacted via phone or email to apprise them of the current enrollment in their class. If the class enrollment is 15 or above, the class will automatically be considered a “go.” If the enrollment is fewer than 15, you will be consulted. Once you commit to teach the course, you are required to continue despite any decreases in enrollment. Students may continue to enroll through December 18, 2017 if your course was declared a "go".
All Go/No-Go decisions will be made by December 2, 2017. Students may check online on December 2, 2017 to see the Go/No-Go list.
