enrollment for summer arts 2021 is open!​

We hope to offer Summer Arts in person on the Fresno State campus for summer 2021. We expect to know if this will be possible by the end of March. There is no obligation to attend if you apply now and we either can't offer courses in person or you just don't want to attend. If we don't offer in-person courses, we will offer many courses online. We will contact you to see if you are interested in switching to an online version of your course, if available. 

If Summer Arts does not happen in person, and you choose not to attend an online course, you will be automatically withdrawn with no penalty. If Summer Arts does take place in person, and you simply do not wish to attend, you can email us any time up to the Friday before class starts to drop your class(es) with no penalty. We will send emails and reminders and keep you informed as we move towards summer 2021.​

Note: Tuition costs/enrollment fees DO NOT include on-campus housing and meals. For information about housing and meal costs, click here.

Enrollment in a course is subject to:

  1. Receipt of your completed online registration and application materials by the CSU Summer Arts  registration office.
  2. Approval by the course coordinator.
  3. Payment of the balance of your fees upon acceptance.


Applicants will be notified by email within one week following the course application deadline. Applicants will receive an email stating that they have been accepted, not accepted, or have been placed on the waitlist. In case of waitlist placement, applicants will be notified as soon as possible if they are confirmed for a spot in the class.


All CSU Summer Arts 2021​ courses offer three to six units of transferable college credit. Undergraduate or graduate credit is earned through Fresno State. Courses offered at CSU Summer Arts may be repeated. If you are a California resident, you may take a second CSU Summer Arts course (up to six units) with no additional enrollment fee.

You must apply for a transcript at the end of your workshop to have the units transferred to your home campus. You will receive instruction about how to order a transcript at the end of your course.
