Fresno State Campus Policy Regarding Student Enrollment Programs

Home (Fresno State Students)

Programs available to you, as a current Fresno State student, at other CSU campuses:

  1. Intrasystem Concurrent/Visitor Enrollment 
    If you are a Fresno State ‘home’ student participating in one of these programs at another CSU, you will be enrolled in a “SPEC” course for the semester.  This course will come off your transcript and you will receive transfer credit once you send us your final transcript from the other CSU with a final grade.

  2. CSU Fully Online
    If you are a Fresno State ‘home’ student participating in one of these programs at another CSU, you will be enrolled in a “SPEC 125” course for the semester.  This course will come off your transcript and you will receive transfer credit once we receiveyour final grade from the other CSU.

  3. CSU Course Match
    Course Match courses are a subset of CSU Fully Online that are “sponsored” by the CSU system.  Campuses that participate in the Course Match program save a small number of guaranteed seats for visiting students.  Fresno State does not currently participate in this program.
