Summer Session 2020 Offers 170 Courses to the Community

The upcoming summer session at Cal State San Marcos offers more than 170 accelerated courses that are open to CSUSM students as well as students from other universities and individuals in the community. Summer session dates are June 1-Aug. 8, 2020.

Course topics feature such disciplines as mathematics, communications, computer science, women’s studies, human development, psychology, sociology, political science, and art, media and design. The classes are offered on a compressed timeline, with students earning units in as little as five weeks. Face-to-face, online and hybrid formats meet a variety of needs.

During summer session, students from other universities, qualified high school seniors and community members can register for courses without being formally admitted to the university. Credits from CSUSM courses are fully transferable to other institutions. In addition, up to 24 undergraduate and nine graduate units taken as a nonmatriculated student may be counted toward a CSUSM degree.

By taking advantage of accelerated classes during summer session, students can speed time to graduation, lighten the course load required in fall and spring terms or — for incoming CSUSM transfer students and freshmen — get a head start on education goals.

The first block of classes will be held June 1-July 2, and the second block of classes are scheduled for July 6-Aug. 8. A small selection of classes run the full 10-week summer session, June 1-Aug. 8.

Enrollment for CSUSM students opens on March 23 and for the public on March 30. For more information on the summer session, please visit csusm.edu/summer.
