CourseMatch at Sacramento State

CourseMatch is the CSU Chancellor's office initiative to provide CSU students greater access to the fully online courses offered throughout the CSU system. Chancellor’s Office approval will be considered for entirely online, asynchronous, highly successful courses, which fulfill general education requirements or lower division major preparation requirements in areas of greatest demand. Instructors must have completed a Chancellor's Office Quality Matters training program or equivalent Sacramento State training program. Professional Development funds or overload pay are available for each approved CourseMatch course in which at least one CourseMatch student enrolls.
