    In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, California State University, Long Beach (CSULB) is transitioning to fully online classes during Summer Sessions 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 summer 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.
