Check your SFSU email for the RSVP invitation sometime in March and/or April—you will receive it if:

  • You are a 1st or 2nd year student, and
  • You live in one of our on-campus residential communities
  • Otherwise, you have access to our services in the UAC for drop-in advising or an appointment with your assigned academic counselor.

Summer 2023 Registration Workshop

To help prepare students in planning for summer, we are offering limited Summer Registration workshops. We'll be covering the pros and cons of summer school at SFSU vs Community colleges, some brief info about summer financial aid (SFSU only), how to check course articulation and transferability, and how to decide which classes to prioritize. We'll also be including some resources for enrolling into a community college if you haven't before. 

Haven't considered summer sessions before? It's a great opportunity to get ahead with your university/GE requirements, catch up on units, or give your GPA a little boost. Join us even if you are not sure!
