What Cal State Fullerton students are saying about Summer Session . . .
"It’s an opportunity to get classes finished quickly. Also allows for a lighter class load during the regular semester."
"I think that it is easier to take one or two classes in summer because you can focus better on each class."
"I usually get better grades in the summer because I am only focusing on one or two classes."
"Because the classes are usually small in size, I was able to sit down with my professors one on one to go over the material."
"Many classes are offered online, so for someone who lives three hours away, such as myself, this is a great opportunity."
"The summer break is long, so why not spend some amount of time on studying in order to graduate sooner."
Maximum of 16 units may be taken during the entire summer term.
Summer Session offers over 700 courses. To get started, check back here on February 22 to view the preliminary class list. The official Class Schedule will be available on Titan Online on March 21. Course offerings may change based on a number of factors, so be sure to check the schedule often for the classes you want before the registration period begins on April 4.
Fees and Payments
The Summer Session tuition fee structure is the same as the Spring 2016 tuition fee structure.
Summer Session fees vary by number of units taken. The CSU makes every effort to keep student costs to a minimum, and the fee structure essentially allows you to take two classes for the price of one, or four classes for the price of three.
If you register between April 4 and May 30, you can register first as long as you pay fees within three days.
If you register after May 31, your fees are due by the end of the day on the day you register.
