Winter Sessions

You can earn up to 4 units toward your degree, catch up or move ahead in your studies so you graduate earlier, or upgrade your skills for an upcoming summer job. There are two convenient sessions to choose from: a four-week session entirely online, and a two-week alternative mode of instruction session. Most of the courses are transferable to other colleges and universities. Admission to the university and instructor and department approval are not required. However, if prerequisites are required and/or the class is full, you will need to obtain approval.

If you are interested in taking a course during Winter Sessions but are not a current CSULB student, you can register by submitting an Online Winter Session Registration form to the College of Professional and Continuing Education (CPaCE).

Non-CSULB students who enrolled in Fall 2022 through CPaCE’s Open University program can use self-service registration. On this page please Self-Service Registration for step-by-step instructions.

We advise you to read the registration instructions carefully and to familiarize yourself with the Refund Policy.
