Welcome to Cal State East Bay Online Programs

California State University at East Bay’s online campus offers award-winning online and hybrid programs designed for busy working adult learners. Our format enables students to pursue their college education in a flexible and affordable way.

Why Pursue Online Education at Cal State East Bay?

Thinking about whether you should commit to online learning? From the flexible learning environment and professional faculty to the affordable cost of attendance, our online programs have so much more to offer. Accredited by the WASC Senior College and University Commission, we are committed to providing exceptional online education to students from all over the world. 

Flexible Learning Format

Unlike the traditional on-campus format, our online programs provide the flexibility that working adults seek. You do not need to give up your full-time employment to attend classes on specific days. Through video lectures, online discussions, virtual meetings with your professors, and class readings, you can learn at your own pace. CSUEB even offers accelerated degree programs that allow you to complete your bachelor’s or master’s degree in as little as two years!

Experienced Online Faculty

The professors and instructors that teach our online courses are the same experienced faculty that lead our on-campus classes. In addition, acknowledging the fact that online teaching is different from face-to-face teaching, we provide professional training and guidelines to our faculty to gain the necessary skills to ensure the quality of our online classes.

Affordable Online Programs

We understand that the cost of the traditional brick-and-mortar college could be expensive. Not only do students need to pay for the tuition and fees, but also the housing and transportation expenses, which makes the cost of attendance even higher. If you are hoping to earn a degree at a lower cost, taking online courses is your solution. In addition, students who are enrolled in online college programs at Cal State East Bay are eligible for financial aid. With that said, you can pursue your academic and life dreams with minimal cost.

Yet, as a Cal State East Bay online student, you have our promise that the quality of your education will not be diminished by the online format.
