About the Sierra Nevada Field Campus


About the Sierra Nevada Field Campus

Tahoe National Forest is the site of San Francisco State University's Sierra Nevada Field Campus (SNFC). The College of Extended Learning offers short courses for academic credit at the campus in the summer. UCorp also offers non-credit workshops. Learn more about UCorp workshops.

Surrounded by thousands of forest acres, lakes, 49er gold mines and ghost towns, and partially bound by a trout tributary of the Yuba River, the campus offers students a unique opportunity to explore the natural environment of the Sierra first-hand.
