San Diego students can now get a San Diego State University bachelor’s degree without having to set foot on an SDSU campus through partnerships with local community colleges throughout San Diego County.

SDSU and its community college partners have created degree completion programs in several disciplines, including:

  • Business Administration
  • Child Development
  • Communication
  • Criminal Justice
  • Public Health

We understand that attaining a traditional four-year degree can be challenging. Many of today’s students have full or part-time jobs, families, and other commitments, which is why SDSU and its partners have created new programs to fit students’ unique educational needs.

Through around-the-clock access to SDSU’s online course offerings, and with on-site student services provided at the community colleges ready to assist, students can attain a valuable degree from SDSU on their schedule.

What is a Microsite?

SDSU Global Campus Microsite Degree Completion Programs will:

  • Provide optional advising and tutoring services at local community colleges.
  • Address the unique educational needs of today’s local students.
  • Provide student support and academic advising services for all program participants.
  • Allow students to gain a valuable degree from SDSU with convenient online courses taught by tenure and tenure-tracked SDSU faculty.
  • Provide optional on-site supplemental assistance at the community college campuses, including in-person discussions, coursework guidance, and supplemental instruction support.

*In-person components are available virtually due to COVID-19 restrictions. Once restrictions are lifted and in-person education resumes at each site, these services will be provided on your community college campus.

The programs are designed to increase educational opportunities for the students of today and the professionals of tomorrow. Together, we can build stronger communities all over San Diego.
