Proctoring tools

Learning in any environment requires a certain level of independence, motivation, and time management. Our online format allows you to balance coursework alongside your personal and professional life. Across a broad range of disciplines, we have seen students from diverse backgrounds, age groups, and levels of technological skill succeed while learning online.

Technology Requirements

The basic technology requirements for our courses are minimal. Access to the Internet (desktop or laptop computer, tablet, smartphone, etc.) and possibly a webcam (microphone usually included) are the most typical. Some courses may require additional software to complete assignments and collaborate with classmates, all of which will all be available online or within the course.

Who You Learn From

CSU's online courses are taught by the same faculty and instructors who teach on-campus students. All of our instructors bring foundational knowledge, as well as their personal experience and perspective, into their online courses. Because of this, our online programs come with the same challenges, expectations, and reputation as on-campus programs, which is why you earn the same degree as your on-campus peers after completing the degree requirements.
