For over 40 years, the College of Extended Studies has served many students with a range of programming designed to meet their personal and professional goals.

Today, there are more than 34 million adults across the nation who have taken college courses, but have never attained a credential. To accommodate these mostly working adults, the College of Extended Studies is increasing access for students everywhere. That means expanding our on-site, off-site, and online learning opportunities with an emphasis on flexibility, accessibility, and practicality to help these learners attain their career and life goals.

We are excited to announce that the College of Extended Studies has changed its name to SDSU Global Campus. SDSU Global Campus will serve as the primary San Diego State University entity responsible for expanding access to SDSU’s programs to learners like you, no matter where you’re located.
