More than 3,000 courses are available through CSU Fully Online at any of the CSU’s 23 campuses. A fully online course is any class that’s offered completely online, meaning there’s no face-to-face instruction with a professor.

Here’s an example how the offer works: A Fresno State student takes a fully online course that’s hosted by San Diego State and the credit transfers back to the student’s home campus (in this case, Fresno State).

There are some requirements before enrolling in a free online course.

The student must have completed at least one term (semester or quarter) at a CSU campus and earned at least 12 units at the campus.

Have a GPA of at least 2.0 at their home campus and are in good academic standing

Are or will be enrolled at their home campus during the time they are taking a fully-online class through another CSU campus.

Have paid tuition as a full-time student at their home campus.

Fresno State, by the way, was named the top public university in the country in 2016 when it comes to reaching its graduation rate goals, according to U.S. News and World Report rankings.
