Obtaining approval to cross enroll at other UC or CSU campuses or community colleges

SFSU students may wish to take advantage of the SFSU cooperative programs with UCSF, UC Berkeley, or other institutions that participate in the San Francisco Consortium. In general, during the regular sessions (summer and winter sessions and extension classes excluded) a matriculated, full-time SFSU student may take up to one course per semester at an SFSU consortium campus on a space available basis if they are unable to take the equivalent course at SFSU.

The instructor of this non-SFSU course must be willing to accept the SFSU student. The SFSU student must have SFSU Biology Department approval (Faculty Advisor and Department Chair) and SFSU registrar approval. The specific requirements are outlined in the SFSU Bulletin and the appropriate enrollment forms.

Check the REGISTRAR'S WEB SITE to determine which program are open.

Detailed information is available in the SFSU Bulletin:
