CSUN’s Fall 2020 Planning Hub
With the health and safety of students, faculty and staff at the forefront of all preparations, CSUN will offer Fall 2020 courses primarily through virtual instruction. To maintain momentum to degree completion and maximize the student learning experience, virtual offerings will be supplemented with a limited number of face-to-face undergraduate and graduate courses and labs with physical distancing and hygiene measures in place.
CSUN as One is the hub for CSUN's Fall 2020 plans. Whether learning and working on-campus or virtually, CSUN remains a united university dedicated to transformative educational opportunity. Each part of these plans is aimed at offering the safest experience possible to protect all members of the CSUN community.
Every member of the campus community has a responsibility to follow prescribed safety precautions for the wellbeing of all. Together, with a shared effort, these steps will help to protect ourselves, protect others and protect our CSUN community.

Learning at CSUN
While primarily virtual, a limited number of face-to-face courses and labs will also be offered that are critical to the educational outcomes of the program, directly tied to progress to degree, and can only be accomplished in an on-campus environment.
Academic Support Services
To bolster students on their educational journey as Matadors, numerous academic support services are available virtually, including online tutoring, writing lab support and supplemental instruction. Advisement is taking place via Zoom, phone and email by all advising offices on campus.
Student Life & Support Services
CSUN is committed to supporting all Matadors and ensuring every student has a strong sense of belonging and connection with the CSUN campus community. Student services and support will be rendered primarily through remote service delivery to promote student safety.
Health and Safety
CSUN has implemented health and safety measures in consultation with the California Department of Public Health and the LA County Department of Public Health. The Klotz Student Health Center and University Counseling Services continue to provide services via on-site and telehealth appointments.
While offering primarily virtual instruction and services, limited departments, labs, and services will be available for approved face-to-face operations that include COVID prevention protocols. Learn more about hours of operation and status of on-site services and facilities.
Each instructional setting that will offer in-person learning have implemented safety procedures that reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission such as modified room set-up for physical distancing, with signage and floor stickers; and COVID-prevention training for faculty, staff and students.
Faculty Technology & Training
Student success in this new learning environment depends on continuous improvement. Professional development opportunities include a range of choices aimed at faculty across the range of experience with online and virtual teaching.
Access to Technology/Support
Information Technology continues to provide students, faculty and staff with access to the technology and support needed to realize student success. Learn more about the Device Loaner Program, computer labs, campus WiFi and other technology resources.
Student Housing in Fall 2020 will be provided on a limited basis, following LACDPH guidance to promote the health and safety of residents and employees.
Residential dining services will be provided for those individuals living within Student Housing. Dining services will follow California Department of Public Health, CDC and LA County Department of Public Health guidelines.
The health and welfare of student-athletes is a priority. Given the robustness of CSUN Athletics and the additional safety considerations inherent with the training, practice and competition, the finalizing of these plans is deferred in order to gain greater clarity on the impact that impending state guidance on intercollegiate athletics may have on CSUN’s proposed approach.
Tuition and Mandatory Fees
CSUN continues to provide students with full academic credit for courses taken and delivered by both face-to-face and virtual learning. Also, students have access to comprehensive student support services and student life opportunities.
