Affordable Learning

The purpose of the CSU Affordable Learning Solutions initiative is to counteract the rising costs of higher education, by supporting faculty to lower costs of course materials for students, and providing solutions to lower costs of faculty scholarship, research and creative activities.

CourseMatch (CM) is a program offered through the CSU Chancellor’s Office that enables CSU students to enroll in successful, high quality, fully online undergraduate courses at other CSU campuses. Students benefit because they can take courses online from other CSU campuses and make more timely progress towards a degree.
