  • A maximum of 24 credits earned through Open University may count toward the cumulative units required for a bachelor’s degree at CSUF.

For graduate degrees, normally 6 to 9 units of approved credits taken through Open University may apply, but for degrees which require more than 30 units, more units of credit may apply.
