2020 Class & Workshop Calendar

COVID - 19 Statement:

Due to the spread of COVID-19, the Sierra Nevada Field Campus, along with everyone else, is in a period of uncertainty as to what the summer program will hold.  It is too early to make decisions, but of course it is on our minds. For now, we will continue to accept registrations for workshops and classes and are hopeful that the program will go ahead as planned with certain health considerations in place. If you plan to fly to California in order to take a class or workshop, then check the airline cancellation clause and consider trip insurance before committing to traveling. In case we end up closing the Field Campus at the time of your workshop or class, your air travel expenses would be covered by your insurance. Please stay tuned - if there are changes to the SNFC summer program, they will be posted here and all students will be contacted and updated immediately.

Registration for Summer 2020 is now open!

Please note that Field Campus course offerings fall into two different administrative categories, with two different registration processes:  CEL classes and UCorp workshops. Both require you to reserve tent and meals through UCorp, however.

College of Extended Learning (CEL) classes offer college credit. CEL handles registration for SNFC in those classes.  However, CEL allows SNFC students to guarantee an early space in Summer classes at SNFC by reserving and paying for your tent & meals before official University Summer CEL registration opens. If you take advantage of this "early option," you will be contacted by CEL to complete the registration by paying tuition directly to CEL.  Or, in late April, initiate and complete the entire process of Registering for a CEL class, and reserving your tent and meals with the UCorp form using the link provided on the class page. See complete instructions when you push the "register" button on the class page. Confused?  Contact us, we can help! sfsu.snfc@gmail.com

University Corporation workshops (UCorp) can be registered by using the form provided on the class pages.  You will also use this form to reserve your tent and meal plan.

A full list of offerings for Summer 2020 is outlined below. Just click on the title. Please find registration instructions and links in each individual full class page.
