Non-Fresno State Students

Students heading to other CSU campuses in the fall may attend Early Start at Fresno State. The program fees and expenses are the same for non-Fresno State students. Early Start grades are automatically sent to the students' home CSU campuses.

Selecting Fresno State

Students must use their home CSU campus student account to select Fresno State for Early Start. Fresno State will email the student (usually within 1-2 business days) with more information. Students have until mid July to select an alternate CSU campus for Early Start.

Students who have previously applied to or taken classes at Fresno State will already have a student account, ID, and login credentials. Their accounts will be updated with an Early Start registration link after they select Fresno State as their Early Start campus.

NOTE: Students may see some "leftover" notifications on their MyFresnoState account if they attended or applied to Fresno State (e.g. a notification to attend Dog Days orientation). Contact us with any questions.

Early Start Updates

Non-Fresno State students should continue to refer to their student account at their home CSU campus for updates on Early Start placement and fee waiver eligibility.

NOTE: Any changes to a student's Early Start exemption statuses or fee waiver eligibility will take 1-2 business days to update at Fresno State. 

Access to Campus Services

All Early Start students have access to campus services offered by the University Student Union, Student Recreation Center, and Student Health Center for the duration of the program (June 18 - July 27, 2018). 

Early Start parking permits will be available from Traffic Operations. Non-Fresno State students should have their Fresno State ID number and class schedule on hand when buying the permit.

Non-Fresno State students may obtain a free Early Start student ID card from the Bulldog Card Office to access campus services during the program.
