Winter Session for Students not Admitted to CSUF 

Through Open University (OU), people not currently admitted to a degree program at Cal State Fullerton can enroll in undergraduate or graduate-level classes and gain college credit.

This includes former CSUF students, CSUF alumni, disqualified students and members of the general public. Those waiting for admission to the University can also take classes through OU.

  • Registration is provided on a space-available basis. Taking a course through Open University does not constitute admission to CSUF.
  • The registration process and period for Open University differs for each academic term. Please see the Open University Winter Session page Opens in new window for more information on registering and dates, respectively.
  • Students enrolling through Open University may consult with an Open University advisor by emailing
  • To search for classes, visit Titan Online Opens in new window and select the correct semester. Uncheck "Show Open Classes Only" to see all selections offered of that course that semester. Be sure to change the Course Career to "Extended Education" so that classes will display for that term.
