What is the Uni-track Program?
The Uni-track Program at California State University, Fresno allows dual enrollment for high school students, who can earn college credit while enrolled in an approved Uni-track course. Students can request a Fresno State transcript upon completion of the coursework. High School and ROP teachers are eligible to apply to participate in the Uni-track program. There are minimal student fees for these Uni-track courses.The Approval Process for High School Teachers:
If your high school has current courses articulated with Fresno State and you would like to have additional courses reviewed, please submit the following five items (per course and per instructor) to Ms. Dolores Vezzolini to begin the review process. The same is true if you are a new instructor seeking approval to offer Uni-track course(s) at your high school for the first time.
- A current resume.
- A Letter of Intent.
- Three Letters of Reference and one must be from your current high school principal.
- A detailed course syllabus including learning objectives.
- Transcripts showing highest degree held.

Most Uni-track classes are offered with the "Mixed Grading" option. This means you can choose the "Letter" grading option A, B, C, D, F, WU (failure - withdrawal unauthorized), I (incomplete) or CR/NC (credit/no credit) option.
When you select a "Letter" grading option of A, B, C, D, F, WU or I, the appropriate grade points are calculated into the grade point average at Fresno State. The following are grade points that will be earned for the following letter grades: A (4 points per unit), B (3 grade points per unit), C (2 grade points per unit), D (1 grade point per unit), F (0 grade points per unit), WU (0 grade points per unit) and I (not used in grade point calculations).
When you select a CR/NCR option, you must earn at least a "C" or better grade to receive Credit (CR) in the course. The "CR" grade contains no grade points but the units are allowed for your degree and are not computed into your grade point average. If you earn a No Credit (NCR) grade, this means you didn't earn a "C" or better in the course. No units will be calculated into your total number of units completed and no units will be allowed towards your degree. No grade points are calculated into your grade point average.
*If the student doesn't choose a grading option, when the "Mixed Grading" option is available, the system will automatically default to "Letter" grading.
**Some Uni-track courses don't have a grading option available and the grading basis cannot be chosen by the individual student.
