CourseMatch is the CSU Chancellor's office initiative to provide CSU students greater access to the fully online courses offered throughout the CSU system. Priority approval will be given to fully online, highly successful courses, which fulfill general education requirements or lower division major preparation requirements in areas of greatest demand. Professional Development funds or overload pay are available for each approved Course Match course in which at least one Course Match student enrolls.
