About Open University

Through Open University (OU), people not currently admitted to a degree program at California State University, Fullerton can enroll in undergraduate and graduate-level classes and gain college credit.

This includes former CSUF students, CSUF alumni, disqualified students and members of the general public. Those waiting for admission to the university can also take classes through OU.

Registration is provided on a space-available basis. Taking a course through Open University does not constitute admission to CSUF.

Those currently enrolled at Cal State Fullerton, or those admitted to the current semester, are not eligible to take classes through OU.

During Intersession and Summer Session terms, be sure to change the Course Career to "Extended Education" so that classes will display for that term.
