Bringing Your Future Into Focus

Pursuing your education in an online learning environment comes with some great perks: a flexible schedule, affordable tuition, expert faculty, just to name a few. If you’re new to online learning, you might be surprised at how engaging and truly interactive the experience can be!

WHERE ARE MY COURSE MATERIALS?

First and foremost, your course materials are available through a learning management system called Canvas. It’s a mobile-friendly, easy-to-navigate, one-stop-shop for instruction and communication.

Your course materials include interactive lectures, written materials, videos, critical thinking assignments, and mastery exercises that all work together to give you a comprehensive understanding of a particular subject area.

While our courses don’t have set class times or locations, each week you’ll need to submit discussion posts by Thursday and other assignments by Sunday. (This can vary by course, but your instructor will let you know if it differs.)

HOW WILL I CONNECT WITH INSTRUCTORS AND PEERS?

Canvas makes connecting and communicating with your instructors and classmates simple. Our faculty come from the industry they teach, so you’ll learn from professionals who’ve been there and done that. They are attentive, accessible, and dedicated to your success, and are available by phone, email, and webform during normal business hours.

Also, be sure to connect with your classmates through email, course message boards, or group chats. Your peers are a great sounding board to share ideas with, as well as to get and give feedback on assignments.

ARE ONLINE CLASSES HARDER?

Prospective students often ask if online classes are harder than in-person ones. It’s impossible to say without knowing the individual, but if you are a self-starter who genuinely enjoys the learning experience, we’re confident CSU Global is the right choice for you.

WHERE CAN I GET HELP IF I NEED IT?

We’re always here for our students and have the resources to help you whenever you need it, often 24/7. CSU Global students have access to our library, tutoring services, career center, disability services, student and alumni discounts, and 24/7 tech support.

WHAT IF I HAVE MORE QUESTIONS?

Check out our helpful FAQ page, or contact a CSU Global Enrollment Counselor at 800- 462-7845 or enroll@csuglobal.edu. They’ll be happy to answer any questions you might have about the university, online learning, or a particular area of study.
