Want to get a leg up on graduation? By taking classes during the 2020 Summer Session at San Francisco State University, students have the opportunity to earn their degree faster.

“In addition to coursework, we are aware that many of our students juggle other responsibilities such as having a job or taking care of their family,” said Associate Vice President for Enrollment Management Maria Martinez. “Summer Session is a great time to catch up or even get ahead.”

Courses in disciplines from Mathematics to Humanities will be offered during Summer Session. Classes are held over five, eight or 10-week sessions, giving students the flexibility to choose a schedule that caters to their summer plans. In addition, Summer Session allows students to take required courses that usually have limited availability in the fall.

In light of COVID-19, all Summer Session classes will be offered through remote modalities. This is to ensure the health and safety of our campus community as the University enacts social distancing measures to mitigate the spread of the virus.

Registration for Summer Session begins April 6. For information about registration, dates, classes, fees and more, go to
