As a provider of innovative higher learning opportunities, CSU-Global Campus has high standards for academic learning. Success in learning outcomes, curriculum development, and retention and graduation rates is regularly assessed using student surveys and third-party evaluations.
Along with rigorous, ongoing evaluation of our academic standards, CSU-Global strives to ensure that academic coursework is relevant to the fast-changing demands of today’s job markets. Because of CSU-Global’s relationships with industry leaders and a faculty that stays connected to real-world demands and innovation, our curriculum bridges the traditional gap between academia and practical skills and knowledge.
At CSU-Global, our curriculum must continually evolve to meet industry needs and to provide learning outcomes that keep graduates relevant in a real-time professional landscape. Subject to regular review by industry experts, our degree and certificate programs allow students to step into career roles fully prepared and up to speed with business and organizational practices within their chosen field.
We utilize student learning data in support of continual program and student outcome improvements.
The ETS® Proficiency Profile is a specific educational testing tool utilized by the university. This tool assesses four core skill areas: reading, writing, mathematics and critical thinking. Through these data, the university can benchmark student success, evaluate teaching and learning, and achieve accountability objectives.
Students graduating in their first fiscal year are included in graduation rates for the following year. Graduation rates are based on an entire fiscal year. Retention is based on whether a student attempted to earn credit during fiscal years after their initial Fall term.
Not only are professional requirements changing, so is online education. The CSU-Global faculty is made up of subject matter experts and industry leaders who are also trained to understand and meet the needs of online students. With CSU-Global’s ongoing research into optimized online learning, our faculty members are lifelong learners as well. Learn more about our faculty.
