CHICO, Calif. – California State University (CSU) announced it is planning for an anticipated return to courses taking place primarily in-person for the Fall 2021 term.

“While we are currently going through a very difficult surge in the pandemic, there is light at the end of the tunnel with the promising progress on vaccines,” said CSU Chancellor, Timothy P. White.

“We are approaching planning for the 2021 fall term with the goal of having the majority of our on-campus experiences returning,” said CSU Chancellor-select Joseph I. Castro. 

CSU is currently conducting the 2020-21 academic year primarily in the virtual space. The university system says emerging evidence provides optimism that the upcoming 2021-22 academic year can be conducted much more in person.

However, the university said it is too soon to determine what they will allow for the 2021 summer term. Officials with the university said that decision will be made closer to the deadlines for summer 2021 student registration.

High school and transfer students have until Dec. 15 to complete their applications for fall 2021 admission. Prospective students should apply to CSU campuses online through the Cal State Apply website. Application fee waivers are available, and there are robust financial aid programs for eligible students with need.
