Is Open University for You?
Open University may be for you if you
- Missed the deadline for spring 2014 admission to SF State degree programs
- Want to update your professional training and job skills
- Want to test your interest in a field before entry or reentry
- Want to explore personal interests
- Want to earn more units after disqualification from a degree program
- Did not attend as a matriculated student during the previous two semesters (fall and spring)
- Were disenrolled or disqualified from the University
Open University is probably not for you if you
- Enrolled for spring 2013, fall 2013, or spring 2014as an admitted SF State student
- Were denied graduation for fall 2013
If one of the above examples applies to you, please contact the Registrars office at 415.338.2350 before registration to determine if you are eligible for Open University.
Matriculated (admitted) SF State students may not enroll through Open University. Only newly admitted SF State students who have not taken any SF State courses have the option to *rescind* their admission. If you do this, you are eligible to enroll via Open University for the current semester no need to wait two semesters. Continuing admitted SF State students cannot rescind their admission status. If you ignore this policy and register in Open University courses, any units you earn through Open University will be removed from your records. There will be no exceptions to this regulation and no refund of fees.
