Frequently Asked Questions
- How do I register?
- After selecting your course(s), register online, if available, or see the Academic Credit Registration page or Non-Credit Registration page to find the appropriate registration form. The full payment of tuition and fees, along with an accurate registration form, completes the registration process. Due to enrollment limitations, it is in your best interest to register at least 7 days in advance of the first class meeting. Call (916) 278-4433 (non-credit & CEUs), or (916) 278-6984 (academic credit) to verify space availability if you are not able to register 7 days in advance. In the event the minimum enrollment levels are not reached, the course may be cancelled prior to the first class meeting. If cancelled, every effort will be made to notify registered participants by phone or mail and a refund will be processed.
- What are the fees?
- Fees for non-credit and academic courses vary and are listed in the fee category of the course schedule. The College of Continuing Education is self-supported and receives no funding or income from sources other than the fees charged for services. Enrollment fees are established by the CSU Board of Trustees. If you are unable to attend a course for which you have registered and want a refund, you must notify the College of Continuing Education 24 hours before the first class meeting.
- What are non-credit courses?
- There are many Continuing Education classes that are classified as "non-credit." Often offered as seminars and workshops, these courses are geared specifically to the special interests of the community. No academic credits or CEUs are awarded.
- Who teaches the courses?
- Courses are taught by highly qualified instructors. They are either Sacramento State faculty or highly qualified professionals working in the field.

- Who can enroll in Continuing Education classes?
- Anyone can enroll! Formal admission to the University is not required for non academic programs. You have the opportunity to expand your knowledge in a relaxed atmosphere. Please note, however, that enrollment in extension offerings does not constitute formal admission to the University. If you are interested in formal admission to Sacramento State, contact Admissions & Records at (916) 278-3901.
- What are Certificate Programs?
- Certificate programs are groups of classes designed to help you gain career expertise, enhance your resume or update your skills. Each program varies, but generally you can earn a certificate within one year. Course schedules are designed to meet the needs of working professionals. Anyone who meets the prerequisite requirements must enroll to take individual courses in a certificate program.
- Where are the classes held?
- Most courses are held in Napa Hall or other locations on the Sacramento State campus. Some courses meet off-campus at specialized sites, or entirely online. We also offer a variety of in-house programs at various companies and government agencies.
