Winter Term


The Tseng College administers California State University, Northridge's Winter Term (intersession), which offers university classes in an accelerated 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. A formal application to CSUN is not required to enroll in Winter Term classes.
