SAN MARCOS, Calif.—The upcoming summer session at California State University San Marcos offers more than 170 accelerated courses that are open to CSUSM students as well as students from other universities and individuals in the community. Summer session dates are June 1 – Aug. 8, 2020.
Course topics feature such disciplines as mathematics, communications, computer science, women’s studies, human development, psychology, sociology, political science, and art, media and design. The classes are offered on a compressed timeline with students earning units in as little as five weeks. Face-to-face, online and hybrid formats meet a variety of needs.
During summer session, students from other universities, qualified high school seniors and community members can register for courses without being formally admitted to the university. Credits from CSUSM courses are fully transferable to other institutions. In addition, up to 24 undergraduate and nine graduate units taken as a non-matriculated student may be counted toward a CSUSM degree.
By taking advantage of accelerated classes during summer session, students can get a head start on education goals, speed time to graduation or lighten the course load required in fall and spring terms.
The first block of classes will be held June 1 – July 2 and the second block of classes are scheduled for July 6 – Aug. 8. A small selection of classes run the full 10-week summer session, June 1 – Aug. 8.
Registration for CSUSM students opens on March 23 and for the public on March 30. For more information on summer session, please visit csusm.edu/summer.
