If you’re looking for a way to learn beyond the traditional classroom setting, CSUF Extension offers a variety of opportunities tailored to help students meet their academic and professional goals. Whether you’re aiming to advance within your current organization, embark on a new career path or focus on professional development, there is a program available for you.

For those looking to enhance their career prospects, CSUF Extension’s professional certificate programs are an excellent choice. Available in multiple fields including business, crime and fiduciary management, and technology and engineering, these programs provide specialized training to set you apart in the job market. Fill skill gaps, advance at your current organization, or switch careers with these virtual or online short-term programs.

CSUF Extension offers online degree completion programs in business administration, sociology, and humanities and social sciences. These programs offer the same education as on-campus options, allowing you to earn a bachelor’s degree conveniently while balancing professional or personal commitments. Check with your employer about tuition reimbursement opportunities.

For those considering a graduate degree, flexible master’s programs cater to busy schedules with evening, weekend and accelerated class options. Choose from programs like the Accelerated M.S. in Applied Computer Science, Fully Employed MBA, M.S.W. and more.

Current CSUF students can stay on track or accelerate their graduation by taking advantage of summer and winter session classes. These sessions offer opportunities to fulfill general education requirements, complete internships, finish a prerequisite and more. For non-admitted students, CSUF offers Open University, an enrollment option that allows you to enroll as a guest in university courses if space is available. This is a great way to improve your GPA.

In collaboration with CSUF’s College of Education, CSUF Extension also offers fully online educator courses and programs. Ideal for current or aspiring educators in California, these programs provide essential prerequisites and credential completion options.

If you’re transitioning into the healthcare field from a non-science background, the Pre-Health Postbaccalaureate Program offers a structured pathway to medical school readiness. An Academic Finisher Program is available if you’ve completed at least one year of general biology and general chemistry. This option allows you to finish your remaining prerequisites in one year.
