Extended and Continuing Education

Students having a discussion in a classroomCSU campuses have maintained Extended and Continuing Education (self-support) courses, programs, and services for over a century. Originally grounded in service to teachers, Extended and Continuing Education operations have grown to include baccalaureate and graduate degree programs, certificates, and many forms of specialized education and training for business, industry, and government. A variety of instructional technologies, including television and Web-based learning, carry CSU courses to local, regional, and national audiences.

Extended and Continuing Education programming is authorized in Education Code Section 89704. In accordance with Education Code Sections 89704 and 89721(i), revenue collected from Extended Education and Special Session fees may be deposited either in the State University Continuing Education Revenue Fund (CERF) in the state treasury or in a local trust account. While the character and composition of campus Extended and Continuing Education programs vary considerably, most units maintain the following common instructional elements: (1) Special Sessions, (2) Open University/Concurrent Enrollment, (3) Extension Operations, and (4) Non-Credit.

Systemwide self-supporting operations are governed and encouraged by the Trustee-authorized Commission on the Extended University.

Campus CERF and trust ledgers had a cumulative balance of $52.4 million at the close of operations on June 30, 2006.
