Spring Breaks are usually scheduled during the second 6 weeks of classes (February through April). If you’re planning on taking spring break this year, make sure you keep these important dates in mind:

  • Friday, March 11th through Sunday, March 13th – Spring Break at CSUF will begin on Friday afternoons and end on Sunday evenings. This means that all classes held between those times will not meet as scheduled.
