Requirements for admission vary by course. Please carefully review the Required Application Materials and Who Should Take This Class sections for each course. Students may only take one course per session. Course dates may not overlap (with the exception of The ​Business of Acting).

Enrollment for a course is subject to:

  1. Receipt of your completed online application and materials
  2. Approval by the course coordinator
  3. Full payment of applicable fees


Applicants will be notified by email stating that they have been accepted, not accepted, or placed on the waitlist for each course. In case of waitlist placement, applicants will be notified as soon as possible if they are confirmed for a spot in the course.

Upon acceptance into the course, fees are due to the Summer Arts registration office. 


All Summer Arts​ courses offer three to six units of transferable college credit through Fresno State. Courses may be repeated. If you are a California resident, you may take up to six units with no additional tuition.

You must apply for a transcript to have the units transferred to your home university. You will receive instructions at the end of your course.
