Winter Term


The Tseng College administers California State University, Northridge's Winter Term (intersession), which offers academic-credit university classes in a compressed format between the Fall and Spring semesters. Winter Term enrollment is open to CSUN students, prospective students, students from other colleges and universities, and members of the community, so long as they meet course prerequisites. No application process is required for registration.
