Spring (May-June) Intersession 2021 runs between May 24 - June 11, 2021.
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.

Decisions about which Spring (May-June) Intersession 2021 classes “go” will be made based upon the number of registrations received and the Go/No-Go list will be published on April 23, 2021. Classes with insufficient enrollment may be cancelled. If your class is cancelled by the University, you may enroll in a different Intersession class, or you will receive an automatic refund. (See Drop/Withdrawal/Refunds.)
Students who fail to attend class may receive a failing grade unless they formally drop the class.
No drops are allowed after the fourth calendar day. Students who have a serious and compelling reason and who wish to drop on the fifth calendar day or later may petition to drop with a grade of “W.” To obtain a Request for Record Adjustment form online, click here. Submit the request to the Admissions, Records and Evaluations Office in the Joyal Building, Room 106.
Students who drop the course prior to the start date of the course can receive a full refund. If you withdraw on or after the first class meeting of a face-to-face class, 65 percent of fees collected can be refunded until 25 percent of the course time has elapsed. For online and arranged classes lasting 5 days or more, 65 percent of fees collected can be refunded until 25 percent of the class has elapsed. After 25 percent of the course time has elapsed, no refund will be made. There is no refund for classes meeting fewer than 5 sessions or lasting fewer than 5 days, once the class has begun. No refund is made unless requested by the student, except for cancelled classes which are refunded automatically.
Intersession grades will be averaged into the student’s Fresno State GPA. Grades will be posted to transcripts beginning August 17, 2021. Students may view their grades at my.fresnostate.edu.
