It has been announced that the rest of the Spring 2020 semester will remain online.

March 30, 2020 – An email is sent out by East Bay Indicating that Summer and Fall 2020 registration which begins on April 13th, and that there is a new limit on the number of units students can register and waitlist for. The maximum number is now a total of registered units plus waitlisted units. Graduating students will still receive a 22 unit maximum; students should check MYCSUEB for their registration appointment for specific information.
April 10, 2020 – An important notice is sent out to students, faculty and staff in regards to spring grades and summer 2020 sessions. With several students and staff worried about how grading will work due to sudden change with going online, many are left with questions about how final grades will be delivered and. Over Spring Break the Academic Senate and Office of Academic Affairs and President Morishita discuss these concerns.
* Please note that more information on grades and withdrawals is contained in two FAQS posted on the Academic Programs and Services website (one for undergraduate students and one for graduate students).
*With grades being the number one concern in the email they explained how grading will occur

Grades: All classes that were graded A-F are now considered “ABC/NC”. Between April 20 and May 8, 2020, a student can decide to change this to Credit (CR) / No Credit (NC). Instructions about how to do this can be found on p. 5, “Edit a Class” in the online registration instructions. Otherwise, the student will receive a letter grade if you get an A, A-, B+, B, B-, C+, C, or C- and an “NC” if you get a grade of “D+” or worse. To help you choose what is best for you, please see the FAQ (undergraduate students or graduate students) or see your academic advisor. Students who use the default ABC/NC pattern and receive a grade of D+ or D may petition to receive the D+ or D, after consulting with their academic advisor The deadline for this special petition is August 31, 2020.

Summer 2020 Session: With COVID-19 crisis still occurring Cal State East Bay’s Hayward, Concord, and Oakland campuses will remain closed and there will be no in-person instruction for Summer 2020. All Summer 2020 courses will be taught on-line.
