Welcome to Open University 

Administered by The College of Professional and Global Education (PaGE), Open University allows members of the community to access Cal State LA's quality university teaching without formally enrolling in the university as part of a degree granting program. Individuals who benefit from taking classes through open university include: 

  • Community members who are interested in taking courses in diverse subjects to pursue personal areas of interest or expand their professional skills 
  • Students who have left the university with a need to increase their GPA in order to be considered for reinstatement 
  • Students planning to enter a post-baccalaureate or graduate program who need to fulfill prerequisite courses or improve their GPA
  • Returned U.S. Veterans interested in applying their benefits as they embark on their academic careers
