Students enrolled at any CSU campus will have access to courses at other CSU campuses on a space available basis, unless those campuses or programs are impacted. This access is offered without students being required to be admitted formally to the host campus and sometimes without paying additional fees.

Although courses taken on any CSU campus will transfer to the student’s home CSU campus as at least elective credit, students should consult their home campus academic advisors to determine how such courses may apply to their degree programs before enrolling at the host campus. Application deadlines vary by campus. Students are encouraged to contact the host CSU campus for specific application deadlines. 

The  Spring 2023 Intrasystem application deadline for CSU students to attend the Channel Islands campus is January 20th, 2023.
