Want to change a class?

During your Dog Day Orientation, you will have the ability to add/switch classes.  DO NOT DROP A CLASS – swap it instead. If you drop one of your Learning Community classes you cannot be reenrolled.

To swap a class: Log into “My Fresno State Portal” and click on “My Class Schedule” under academics in your Student Center. Next, click on the tab “swap” and select your term and change from the class you have, to the class that you would like to have.

If you decide not to live on-campus, you will be dropped from your three learning community classes.

For additional learning community classes, please contact housing@csufresno.edu.
