Fully online courses have no campus meetings. CSUN offers three types of online courses:
- In a "Fully Online Asynchronous" course (FOA), all class sessions and exams are presented in an online environment. The course may be anytime access with no arranged online meetings. Please consult with instructor for details.
- In a "Fully Online Synchronous" course (FOS), students attend class sessions in an online environment. The class typically meets virtually at a designated time. Please consult with instructor for details.
- In a "Fully Online Intermittent" course (FOI), class sessions are presented in an online environment. Online meetings may be a mix of scheduled and/or intermittent meeting times and anytime access. Please consult with instructor for details.
Some online courses are synchronous: students are expected to meet online at a specified time to participate in course discussions and/or complete assignments. The day of the week and time are listed in the Class Search in Pacific Standard Time (PST).
- Maximum unit load: 4 units. Unlike other terms, students cannot appeal to take additional units.
- Classes with prerequisites or other restrictions may require you to have a Permission Number in order to enroll. For instructions on obtaining a Permission Number, see Prerequisites.
