Exciting News about Fall

Thursday, December 10, 2020

Dear Gators,

Yesterday, we received encouraging news from the chancellor of the California State University (CSU): The CSU expects its campuses (including San Francisco State University) to return to primarily in-person instruction for the fall 2021 semester. This announcement gives us a ray of hope during these short winter days and allows us — and you — to do some important planning ahead.

  • While spring will be largely virtual, it is critical that you remain focused on your educational goals.  If you haven’t already done so, be sure to register now for your spring classes, and stay on track for your degree. 
  • San Francisco State is here to support you as you continue your studies in these challenging times. With many student academic support programs to choose from, you will have the help you need to be successful. 

I am so proud of the commitment and resilience you have shown this fall, and I am excited at the prospect of a day in the not-so-distant future when we’ll be together again enjoying all that our campus, the Bay Area and the City of San Francisco have to offer. Until then, please stay safe — while taking steps to join us for another life-changing year of education at SF State.
