File Viewers and Plugins

If you are having trouble viewing files on the Cal State L.A. website, it may be because your computer does not have the necessary application to open and view the file type you are attempting to access. Download and install the needed plugin to add additional functionality to your web browser so you may open the file type you wish to view. If you are not sure which specific plugin you need, take a look at the file extension of the file you're attempting to access and compare it with the extensions listed below.
