Fall 2020 Update

Out of concern for the health, safety and welfare of students, staff and faculty, California State University (CSU) campuses will offer their courses primarily through virtual instruction in the upcoming fall term. This decision was made in consideration of the data surrounding the progression of COVID-19. Please refer to the link found here for the announcement made by CSU Chancellor Timothy White.

Exchange students who have applied for Fall 2020 through CSU International Programs (CSU IP) as part the CSU Systemwide Exchange Program have the option to defer to the Winter/Spring 2021 term or to reapply for Fall 2021. More information about our January 2021 intake and the deferral process will be available by the end of June. We advise exchange students to discuss their plans and options with their home universities, and that exchange partners communicate those plans with CSU IP.

We realize that this is disappointing news for students who were hoping to study at the CSU in the fall. We look forward to welcoming exchange students in 2021 where they can fully participate in exchange at one of our campuses and experience what California has to offer.
