Requirements for admission vary by course. Please carefully review the Required Application Materials and Who Should Take This Class sections for each course you are interested in. Students may apply for and enroll in only one course per two-week session. Course dates may not overlap.

Enrollment in a course is subject to:

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

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


All CSU Summer Arts​ 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 instructions about how to order a transcript at the end of your course.
