It is the responsibility of the University to provide access to higher education beyond the traditional patterns of campus-based education and programs. This task is assigned to the Extended University Division (EUD). It administers a variety of programs, courses, workshops, seminars, and conferences designed for those members of the community who seek to expand their interests, to improve and broaden their professional preparation, or to further their University degree aspirations. The Divisionís activities are frequently organized in cooperation with school districts, governmental agencies, nonprofit organizations, professional associations, and other such agencies to effectively offer programs that meet the general community needs.
Generally, it is not necessary for students to make formal application for admission to the University in order to enroll in specific courses offered by EUD. Individuals need not submit transcripts of previous work. However, persons wishing to participate in specific degree and certificate programs should contact the EUD office for information concerning application procedures and admission information. In all cases, students must satisfy the academic or experiential prerequisites for the particular courses in which they intend to enroll, or, obtain permission of the instructor.
Enrollment in courses through the EUD
does not, in itself, constitute formal acceptance into the University.
Special Sessions -- include courses offered during the summer and other offerings such as special courses offered during the academic break between fall and winter quarters. These courses are closely aligned with regular on-campus classes and generally afford the student regular residence credit.
The Summer Program is divided into two general sessions. There is some overlapping of longer course offerings, and a variety of specialized courses may be offered in an intensive format. The summer course schedule is available in January. There is no differentiation of fees for out-of-state students.

Fees -- The State of California does not provide financial resources to support EUD instructional programs. All courses and programs must be totally financed by student fees and operated on a self-supporting basis. Over the years, fees for special programs and Special Sessions programs have been somewhat higher than those charged for regular residence attendance. Course fees vary considerably based on the type of program offered, location, and other factors. All fees are subject to change as determined by the Board of Trustees of the California State University System. Financial aid may be available for qualified students enrolled in Regional Program offerings.
