The CSUF academic calendar 2023-2024 includes important dates such as registration periods, add/drop deadlines, holidays, and breaks. These dates play a crucial role in helping students plan their academic activities, meet deadlines, and prepare for exams and assignments.
California State University, Fullerton (CSUF) follows a semester-based academic calendar. The academic calendar at CSUF provides a structured framework for students’ coursework and helps them plan their academic schedules effectively.
CSUF’s academic year consists of two main semesters: the Fall semester and the Spring semester. Each semester typically spans around 15 weeks, including instruction and examination periods.
The Fall semester at CSUF usually begins in late August or early September and extends until December. It is followed by a winter break, during which students have time off from classes. The Spring semester generally starts in January and concludes in May.
CSUF also offers optional summer sessions, allowing students to take courses during the summer months and earn additional credits toward their degrees. These summer sessions provide opportunities for students to accelerate their studies or focus on specific areas of interest.
