Fall 2021

The CSU expects its campuses (including San Francisco State University) to return to primarily in-person instruction for the Fall 2021 semester.

This announcement provides current and future students and their families with assurances that the CSU is and will continue to work diligently on the health protocols needed for a safe return to campuses in fall and to allow all more time to plan. 

Recent news about COVID-19 vaccine development allows us to begin to plan for this step.

As always, the health and safety of our campus community will be our top priority. Throughout the pandemic, we have lived in a rapidly changing environment, and we don’t have enough information yet to make an informed decision about Summer 2021 instruction. Obviously, our ultimate goal is a safe return to fully normal operations, but our campus planning work will continue to be driven by science and the guidance of public health experts.
