Students drove to the fairgrounds to attend the first classes at Stanislaus State College in 1960. Established by the California legislature in 1957, the college was relocated to a new campus, and later became California State University, Stanislaus in 1985. Today, CSU Stanislaus retains membership in the California State University system, along with 22 other campuses.
Unlike many of the California State University’s more urban campuses, CSU Stanislaus is located on a 228-acre tract in the rural city of Turlock, in San Joaquin County. Students can opt from extensive programs ranging from undergraduate to doctorate degrees. CSU Stanislaus houses degree programs in the following colleges and divisions:
College of Business Administration
College of Education, Kinesiology and Social Work
College of Science
College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences
University Extended Education
Students can complete distance learning programs through the Division of the University Extended Education.
Western Association of Schools and Colleges, Senior College and University Commission
