Due to the current COVID-19 situation, we are following evolving guidance from the CSU Chancellor’s Office, as well as state and local public health agencies.
Given that many people are concerned about attending large gatherings right now, we felt it was prudent to cancel the in-person Preview Day and offer the event as an ONLINE experience for students and their families.  An email will be sent to admitted students regarding the Preview Day Online Experience!

Thank you for your understanding. We apologize for any inconvenience.


Preview Day is the largest incoming student event at Fresno State. It is designed for fall 2020 first-time-freshman and transfer applicants as well as their families and friends. This year, the event will take place on Saturday, March 28, 2020.   Every year, our program draws thousands to campus for an unforgettable one-day visit. A wide selection of activities, workshops, and speakers have been scheduled to give students a glance at what lies ahead for them. The event is free, but students must register.
