Proposing a Course

Step By Step Procedures

  • Consult with your Department Chair about the course you wish to offer
  • Complete the Course Proposal Form through DocuSign:

Intersession Course Proposal Form

Intersession Course Proposal Form with Volunteer Form

  • Obtain Department Chair and Dean signatures and submit the course proposal form to the Division of Continuing and Global Education no later than October 5, 2020.
  • Upon successful completion of your DocuSign proposal you will receive an email copy. You may follow up on the progress of the form with the Intersession Coordinator by emailing

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 15, 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. Digital posters will be provided to each Intersession instructor; we encourage faculty to share the posters as they see fit.

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.


On November 17, each instructor will be contacted via 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 21, 2020 if your course was declared a "go".

All Go/No-Go decisions will be made by November 19, 2020. Students may check online on November 20, 2020 to see the Go/No-Go list and enroll in classes with seats still available.
