CLASS MEETING: Normally, classes meet once a week for 16 weeks.

Students enrolling in graduate courses for the first time and who are not currently admitted to a graduate degree program are required to complete a graduate-at-large application. A $25 application fee must be submitted with the at-large-application. Additionally, proof of a Bachelor’s degree must be submitted with the application, (i.e., copy of a transcript illustrating an awarded degree, copy of your diploma, or state teaching certificate). Graduate-at-Large students who have not enrolled in a course at CSU within two years or more, but left in good standing, are required to apply for readmission by completing a readmit form. There is a $25 fee for readmission. Admitted students who have not attended CSU within the last two years must obtain a departmental advisor’s signature. Submit your extension registration form, at-large application or readmit form, proof of degree, tuition fee, and $25 at-large application fee to your instructor or an extension services department representative on the first day of the class, or submit to the extension services department on campus in JDC 201 if enrolling only in extension courses.
