5. Attend Classes Online and Succeed

After you have paid your summer basic tuition and fees (or you qualified to postpone paying these charges by completing the financial aid online summer counseling session), the SDSU Office of the Registrar will automatically register you for two three-unit FAST classes. The session is July 6 to August 9, 2017.

If only one remedial course is required, you also will be enrolled in a General Education course: REL S 101, World Religions.

You may view your schedule online in your WebPortal account.
