What is a Fully Online course?

Fully Online courses are online classes hosted across the CSU system by various campuses that allow CSU students the opportunity to remotely take 1 free online course per term for credit at their home campus. Students must meet all eligibility criteria to participate.

Example scenario: A student attends San Diego State University. If eligible, the student may take a fully online course hosted by CSU Chico for credit at the home campus (San Diego State University).

Why? The California State University wants to give students access to online courses offered in a variety of disciplines from each of the 23 system campuses with the goal of expanding enrollment opportunities.

Eligibility Requirements
