What is Open University/Extended Education?
Open University provides an opportunity for people who are not currently admitted to a degree program at Cal State Fullerton, to enroll in degree credit classes. Registration is based on a space-available basis and students must fulfill prerequisite and eligibility requirements. This includes students academically disqualified from CSUF. Enrollment in Open University does not constitute admission to the University and there ARE restrictions on the number of Open University units that may count towards a degree. Open University advising and registration is handled through University Extended Education. For complete program information, review Open University at CSUF The Student Services Office for Extended Education is located in College Park 100. When registering for classes, disqualified students must select courses from the regular CSUF class schedule.
Since Open University is the only option you have to continue taking degree credit courses at CSUF after you are disqualified, you are expected to take full advantage of this opportunity by earning A's, B's, and raising your CSUF and total grade point averages in a reasonable time. Students who make school a top priority, and immediately address the issues or circumstances that led to their academic problems are more likely to be readmitted to CSUF. Students who do not make serious changes in their lives are more likely to continue doing poorly and less likely to qualify for readmission.
*** Important Notes About Open University ***
No more than 24 units of Open University credit may count toward a bachelor's degree. Courses taken beyond the 24 units are calculated in your grade point average and satisfy subject requirements, but do not earn graduation units.
Units earned through Open University do NOT satisfy residence requirements for the bachelor's degree. Please refer to the Graduation Requirements section of the university catalog 2011-13 Page Number 44. Students in the College of Business and Economics (CBE) must also satisfy residence requirements for their major. Click to view CBE residence requirements. For information on residence requirements for your major, please consult with the Business Advising Center in SGMH-1201 or call (657)278-2211.

I have other options besides Open University?
In some cases, it is best for disqualified students to try to get a fresh academic start by transferring to another university instead of going through Open University. If you plan to transfer to another university, make sure to meet with an admissions counselor at the campus you are interested in to find out about their admission requirements. Students who choose this option do not intend to or cannot return to CSUF. Below are some examples of students who may benefit from this option.
