The University provides access to higher education and lifelong learning beyond the traditional patterns of campus-based programs supported by taxpayers. This responsibility is assigned to the Division of Extended Education and Global Outreach (EEGO). The Division administers a variety of self-supported degree programs, courses, workshops, seminars, and conferences for 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 Division’s 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 community needs. The EEGO website contains detailed, up-to-date information on programs, policies, and fees.


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 EEGO. Individuals need not submit transcripts of previous work. However, persons wishing to participate in specific degree and certificate programs should contact the EEGO 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 EEGO does not, in itself, constitute formal acceptance into the University.

Types of Program Offerings

Degree Programs

Degree Programs are  provided at specific sites through face-to-face, hybrid, and online instruction. Such programs may include the delivery of regular academic courses, complete undergraduate or graduate degrees, and certificates for professional or personal development.

Professional and Continuing Education Programs

Winter Session

Winter Session courses are offered during the break between the fall and spring semesters and can count toward degree requirements. These courses are not financial aid eligible.

Summer Session

Summer Session courses are offered during the break between the spring and fall semesters and can count toward degree requirements. These courses are financial aid eligible. Typically, there are two five-week sessions and one 10-week session.

Open University

Non-matriculated and academically disqualified students have the opportunity to enroll in regular University classes through the Open University program offered by EEGO. Students may register on a space available basis by obtaining  permission from the instructor. There is a limit to the number of Open University credits that can be applied to a degree program. Students should contact the EEGO office for specific details and limitations.

Contract Credit

Degree credit or continuing education units (CEU’s) can be posted to CSUB transcripts for activities such as conference attendance or seminars. Students must request prior approval  by the overseeing academic department to receive academic credit.

Non-credit Professional Development

Courses earning either continuing education units (CEUs) or non-credit are considered non-credit courses and are  of professional, personal, or general interest. These programs are designed in response to identified community needs. Courses often are bundled into certificate programs. Special courses and programs designed for re-licensure or other forms of continuing education are offered.

The American Language Institute (ALI)

ALI provides English instruction for international undergraduate and graduate students to prepare them for successful academic study in American colleges and universities.

Non-credit instruction is provided in reading and vocabulary, writing and grammar, listening and speaking, and pronunciation. Elective courses are offered in American culture, academic study skills and TOEFL preparation. Attention is given to academic writing, textbook reading, and oral presentation.
