Each online class has a start and end date, and also specific assignments with due dates in most weeks; none of our classes are self-paced. Each class begins on the day specified in the schedule; once you log in to Blackboard, you will find a syllabus and instructions on how to start working on the course. You must login the second day of class or you may be dropped.
All courses are asynchronous (participants in these courses need not be online and in the course at the same time) – you never need to log in at a particular time or on a particular day, though you will need to log in 3-4 times a week in order to complete your individual and group assignments and to participate in threaded discussions.
Here is the required sequence for the first four courses (each is five weeks in length and each earns 4.5 quarter credits/units/hours):
- Quarter One: EDUI 6701 (Session One) and 6702 (Session Two)
- Quarter Two: EDUI 6703 (Session One) and 6704 (Session Two)
Once you have completed EDUI 6701 through 6704 with a GPA of 3.0 or better, you will receive the Certificate in Online Teaching and Learning.
Courses numbered higher than EDUI 6704 are ten weeks in length (each of these also earns 4.5 quarter credits/units/hours), and you will need six more courses.
MS in Education, option in Online Teaching and Learning (MS-OTL) students must take EDUI 6706 (which meets the University Writing Skills Requirement) as soon as they have completed the prerequisite/Certificate courses (EDUI 6701 – 6704). You may complete the remaining required and elective courses in any order, except for the Capstone course, which you must take in your final quarter.
- EDUI 6706
- EDUI 6705
- EDUI 6707
- one theoretical elective (EDUI 677x)
- one technical/methodological elective (EDUI 678x),
- one Capstone course (Project: EDUI 6899) which must be taken during your final quarter in the program.
We generally offer two required courses and one elective course every quarter. However, you can only take a maximum of two EDUI 4.5 unit courses per quarter.
You must enroll in a class during the quarter you are admitted to our program. Failure to do so will result in a “no show” status and your acceptance into our program will be cancelled. If you need to defer your enrollment, you will have to reapply and pay the $55 application fee again. However, you will not have to resubmit your transcripts if you are reapplying within 1 year of when you were first accepted to the program. You can find out more information on this new policy at http://www.csueastbay.edu/prospective
Please make sure to keep track of application deadlines here.
All students must register for classes through Continuing and International Education. If you use a Visa or Mastercard, you can register at https://www.conted.csueastbay.edu/ec2k/Home.asp.

http://www.ce.csueastbay.edu/registration/forms/RegistrationForm.pdf and fax it to (510) 885-4498 or mail it to us as indicated on the form.
If you are paying by Visa or Mastercard and do not want to register online, you can enroll by phone/voicemail by calling (510) 885-3605. Per the CSU Chancellor’s Office, we cannot accept faxed registrations that contain a credit card.
Tuition cost is $1,327.50 per course for in-state, out-of-state and international students.
If you need special accommodations for a disability, please contact the Student Disability Resource Center (SDRC) as early as possible (preferably before the class begins). There's more information about our SDRC at http://www.csueastbay.edu/sdrc If you have questions about how we accommodate students with disabilities in our online courses, please let us know.
You may be “away” from the program for only two consecutive quarters and must enroll in a class by the third quarter if you want to maintain your acceptance in the program. Otherwise, your admission will be cancelled. You will have to re-apply and pay the $55 application fee (and you may also have to resubmit transcripts) if you want to start taking courses again.
At the graduate level, a "B" average is needed for graduation. In our program, students need a B in all required courses; they can earn a lower grade in their two electives but the overall GPA must be a "B". This information is also posted on the university’s latest catalog: http://www20.csueastbay.edu/ecat/general-info/grad-degree-info.html.
No. This program is not eligible for the Over 60 Fee Waiver because it is offered through the Division of Continuing & International Education, which is self-support and cannot use any funds from the state of California. The Over 60 Fee Waiver can only be used for degree programs that use state funds.
