Early Start Courses at Fresno State

Limited seats available for each course. Register early.

Dog Days Scheduling Conflicts

When selecting Early Start classes, students are advised to schedule around their Dog Days orientation. If a scheduling conflict cannot be avoided, students are advised to contact their Early Start instructor ahead of time and report the planned absence on their orientation days. 

WARNING: Students, it is YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to either register in a class that does not conflict with your scheduled Dog Days orientation or contact your Early Start instructor in advance to clear your absence.
