Summer Session offers hundreds of courses which can help students get ahead in their studies.

"The phrase we have been using is 'make summer count,' and Summer Session provides a great opportunity for students do just that," said Jose Galvan, associate vice president and dean of the College of Extended Learning and International Affairs. "Students can take classes they may not have been able to get into during fall or spring and move toward their degree more quickly."

For those not currently students at SF State, Summer Session provides a way to take classes while working a summer job or internship in San Francisco or while home for the summer from another college or university, said Angela Jones, associate dean of the College of Extended Learning and International Affairs.

Classes will be available in four sessions: June 9­­ ­­– July 11, June 23 – Aug. 15, July 14 – Aug. 15, and June 9 – Aug. 15. The full schedule of Summer Session courses is now available online.

Students must register for Summer Session through the College of Extended Learning, and students currently enrolled at SF State are given priority registration from April 7 to 11. Current students should check CEL Reg on MySFSU to see their priority registration date and time. Students not currently enrolled at SF State can begin registering for Summer Session on April 14.

The cost of summer session courses is similar to the cost of spring or fall semester courses. Financial assistance is available to those who qualify, and the Financial Aid Office will notify students of their eligibility for assistance.
