CSULB Online May Intersession

    May Intersession 2020

    Classes run Monday, May 18 - Friday, June 5, 2020​

    CSULB offers multiple courses during May Intersession. Many of these courses are transferable to other colleges and universities, so you can earn up to 4 units toward your degree. Registration is easy...no formal admission to the university is required.


    In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, California State University, Long Beach (CSULB) is transitioning to fully online classes during the May Intersession 2020. Online classes may include synchronous and asynchronous instruction including some technology-enhanced alternative modalities. Therefore, there will be no course sections offered in a face-to-face instructional mode during this upcoming term. 

    Courses originally scheduled to include face-to-face or hybrid modes (combined online and face-to-face instruction), may be converted to online and/or technology-enhanced alternative modes of instruction.  If for any reason, a course cannot be delivered online, then the course may be cancelled.

    Thank you for your patience as we adapt to the best methods of serving you during these truly unprecedented times. If you have any questions or concerns, please email CPIE-Info@csulb.edu.​

    In-Person Registration is suspended until further notice. 

    While we continue to respond to the COVID-19 at our university, our highest priority continues to be the health and well-being of everyone who comes to our registration windows. As we navigate the evolving impact of coronavirus on our communities, we are temporarily closing in-person registration to help limit person-to-person contact. As a result, CPIE has provided alternative registration methods for CSULB and non-CSULB students to ensure that you are still able to enroll seamlessly in your May Intersession courses.

    Add a Class or Change a Section

    All adds and section changes must be completed by the last day to add for each session, regardless of the class start date. Once classes begin, section changes will include a pro-rated fee and partial refund for dropped classes. Instructors for classes of short duration will only approve requests if submitted early in the session and honored by specified deadlines.

    Ask the class instructor to approve your request. If the instructor approves your request, please submit the Summer Sess​ions Online Registration Form and attach the instructor's approval to the form.

    If the adjustment results in additional fees, pay your increased registration fees (see Fees and Payment).

    Change Your Grading Option

    Under certain circumstances, you may choose to take a class for credit/no credit (CR/NC) instead of a letter grade. You may also attend a class and receive no recorded grade (audit the class). No class that you audit will count towards your academic program.

    Check the CSULB catalog or www.csulb.edu/enrollment-services for restrictions on CR/NC classes.
