  • In-Person Registration is suspended until further notice. 

    While we continue to respond to the COVID-19 at our university, our highest priority continues to be the health and well-being of everyone who comes to our registration windows. As we navigate the evolving impact of coronavirus on our communities, we are temporarily closing in-person registration to help limit person-to-person contact.

    May Intersession 2020

    Registration begins on March 2, 2020

    Classes run Monday, May 18 - Friday, June 5, 2020

    Note: If you register on or after May 18, 2020, your basic registration fees will include an additional $25 non-refundable Late Registration Fee.​

    CSULB offers a number of May Intersession courses. Many of these courses are transferable to other colleges and universities, so you can earn up to 4 units toward your degree. Registration is easy...no formal admission to the university is required.


    Add a Class or Change a Section

    All adds and section changes must be completed by the last day to add for each session, regardless of the class start date. Once classes begin, section changes will include a pro-rated fee and partial refund for dropped classes. Instructors for classes of short duration will only approve requests if submitted early in the session and honored by specified deadlines.

    Ask the class instructor to approve your request. If the instructor approves your request, please submit the Summer Sessions Online Registration Form and attach the instructor's approval to the form.

    If the adjustment results in additional fees, pay your increased registration fees (see Fees and Payment).

    Change Your Grading Option

    Under certain circumstances, you may choose to take a class for credit/no credit (CR/NC) instead of a letter grade. You may also attend a class and receive no recorded grade (audit the class). No class that you audit will count towards your academic program.

    Request Credit/No Credit (CR/NC):

    Check the CSULB catalog or www.csulb.edu/enrollment-services for restrictions on CR/NC classes.

    Download the Grade Option Change Request Form and obtain appropriate signatures.

    Please email the Grade Option Change Request form to CPIE-info@csulb.edu by the last day to add for each session.

    Request to Audit a Class:

    Download the Grade Option Change Request Form and obtain appropriate signatures.

    Please email the Grade Option Change Request form to CPIE-info@csulb.edu by the last day to add for each session.

    Be aware that Requests for CR/NC and Audit for short duration classes will only be approved by instructors if submitted early in the session and honored by specified deadlines.
