Division of Continuing and Global Education


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.
  • Follow up on the progress of the form with the Intersession Coordinator, at 278-0333 or email

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 May-June Intersession should be placed directly by each instructor to the Kennel Bookstore by April 1, 2020.

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 will be available online beginning March 16, 2020.

Go/No-Go Decisions

Each instructor will be contacted via phone or email to apprise them of the current enrollment in their class. Once you commit to teach the course, you are required to continue despite any decreases in enrollment. Students may continue to enroll through the first day of class if your class was declared a "go." 

All Go/No-Go decisions will be made by April 16, 2020.  Students may check online on April 17, 2020 to see the list of available classes.
