EIP partners with CSUF colleges and departments to offer bachelor’s and master’s degrees,
as well as preparation programs for those looking to apply to professional health-care,
law and business schools.
EIP expands access to University classes through Open University, Summer Session and
Winter Session. Open University registration is open to the general public; Summer
and Winter Sessions help Cal State Fullerton students graduate on-time or early.
Open University is an enrollment option for students not currently admitted to CSUF,
to request approval and enrollment into course sections from the regular degree schedule of courses.

Covid-19 vaccination is required for any student enrolled through Open University
in course sections meeting in-person or in a hybrid format. For those eligible, an
approved booster dose is also required by February 7, 2022. There are no options
to request a religious or medical exemption if enrolled through Open University.
Enrollment through Open University into only fully online courses does allow you
to attest you are in a fully online (WEB) course(s) and will not access any CSUF facilities
nor participate in any on-campus CSUF activities, programs or other instruction.
Therefore, status of COVID-19 vaccination and booster dose would not be required.
When you log into the CSUF Portal to access your course, you will receive a Portal
Message requesting you attest to Covid-19 vaccine and booster dose status (if eligible)
or attest you are only enrolled in a fuly online course(s) and will not be coming to
the campus in person. You will not be able to bypass this message and access your
course(s), until you have completed this information.
Spring 2022 instruction starts online (January 22-February 6): Due to the recent spike in Omicron cases, in-person instruction will be delayed until
Monday, February 7, 2022. You should plan to participate in your course(s) online
during the first two weeks of the semester. Once enrolled, you will access course
information via Canvas and should direct any course-related questions to the instructor
of the course. Please note the campus will remain open during this time. Some university
departments or services could be slightly modified to remote work to further reduce
the number of people on campus, but the university is fully operating.
