Through the functions of the Consortium a variety of increased and enhanced educational opportunities may be made available to full-time students, in good standing, of the member institutions. In addition, numerous cooperative projects directed toward various aspects of urban development and special programs in higher education may involve faculty of two or more member institutions. San Francisco State University students who have special needs or interests, which may be served through connections with one of the other Consortium institutions, should contact the Registrar's Office, San Francisco State University, 1600 Holloway Avenue, San Francisco, CA 94132.

CSU Intrasystem and Intersystem Enrollment Programs

Students enrolled at any CSU campus have access to courses at other CSU campuses on a space available basis unless those campuses or programs are impacted or admission to the desired program or admission categories are closed. This access is offered without students being required to be formally admitted to the host campus and sometimes without paying additional fees. Although courses taken on any CSU campus will transfer to the student's home CSU campus as elective credit, students should consult their home campus academic advisors to determine how such courses may apply to their specific degree programs before enrolling at the host campus.

 

There are two programs for enrollment within the CSU and one for enrollment between CSU and the University of California or California community colleges. Applications and additional information about these programs are available from the Registrar's Office.

 

CSU Concurrent Enrollment Program

  • Matriculated students, in good standing, may enroll on a space available basis at both their home CSU campus and a host CSU campus during the same term. Credit earned at the host campus is reported at the student's request to the home campus to be included on the student's transcript, as resident credit, at the home campus. It is the student's responsibility to make sure the credits have been incorporated into the official records of the home institution. This program is only available during the regular sessions of the academic year and specifically excludes summer session, winter session, and extension.
  • International students need to verify full-time status with the Office of International Programs.
