Summer session courses will be offered at all CSU campuses. Incoming students may participate at any CSU campus or at any California Community Colleges that is most convenient for them. 

Registering for Early Start if you will be a CSUCI student in the fall :

Follow CSUCI’s How to Participate/Enroll Guide (PDF, 794 KB) to learn how to make your Early Start selections and to enroll in Early Start courses at CSUCI, which are offered through Extended University. Students must use the log-in information they were sent by CSUCI to register for their Early Start classes.

Students must register and pay for Early Start classes by June 15 and July 5, 2019, respectively. If students fail to declare where they plan to take Early Start classes by the established deadline (see “Early Start Deadlines” section), their only option will be to enroll in CSUCI’s Early Start Program. This means they will need to register and pay by the deadlines (see “Early Start Deadlines” section) established by CSUCI.

Students will receive an email within 48 hours after their registration and/payment was received. Students are to contact Extended University at 805-437-2748 if they do not receive such confirmation.

Registering for Early Start at CSUCI if you are not attending CSUCI in the fall:  

Follow CSUCI’s How to Enroll Guide (PDF, 612 KB) to learn how to enroll in Early Start courses. Students must use the log-in information they were sent by CSUCI to register for their Early Start classes.

The CSU campus where students plan to take Early Start will email them information regarding how to sign up for classes.  It is important for students to check both their home and campus email to receive registration information as well as how to create a student portal account for the service campus (the campus where they plan to take their Early Start classes). Students may NOT use their home campus’s log-in information to register at another CSU campus.

Students must register and pay for Early Start classes by the deadline established by the service campus (where they will be taking Early Start). Students who will be attending another CSU campus in the fall may elect to fulfill their Early Start requirement at CSUCI. 

CSUCI’s Early Start classes are offered through Extended University. CSUCI’s Extended Education program will send students information on how to register and pay for their classes. Students must contact Extended University 805-437-2748 if they do not receive registration information after 48 hours. If the registration deadline has not passed, the student will need to register for an alternative course at that campus. 

Students taking Early Start at a California Community College: 

Incoming freshmen may also fulfill their Early Start requirement at a California Community College, accredited private institution or at an accredited institution in another state. Students must contact the admissions office where they will enroll in the fall prior to selecting this option. 

In addition, they are required to send official transcripts to their home campus (where they'll be studying in the fall) once the Early Start coursework is completed. 

Early Start Costs: 

Early Start has a common fee across all 23 CSU campuses. The current fee estimate is $191 per unit plus $2 in misc. fees (Health Facilities and Student Union), which are subject to change based on approved fee increases.

California residents who apply for financial aid and have an EFC (Estimated Family Contribution) of 5,500 or less are eligible for a waiver of the per-unit fee. Students who qualify for a fee waiver will be able to see it on their Early Start selection page when they click “Enroll in Early Start.” If the message indicates that the student is eligible for a waiver but also shows that a fee is owed, then the student must contact their home campus (where they will be enrolled in the fall).

Campus parking fees and purchasing of textbooks are additional expenses and not covered by financial aid.

Paying for Early Start: 

The university uses a system called CashNet to process payment for Early Start classes. A tutorial on how to use CashNet may be found at www.youtube.com/watch?v=QYsNAY1CKRU

Students are at risk for being disenrolled in Early Start courses for failure to meet the payment deadline (see "Early Start Deadlines" section).
