CSU policy does not allow existing state-support programs to be “supplanted” via Extended Learning offerings; however, CSU campuses may offer existing state-supported programs where at least one of the following conditions is met: "i. the courses or program is designed primarily for career enrichment or retraining (Education Code § 89708)[;] ii. the location of the courses or program offerings is removed from permanent, state-supported campus facilities; [or], iii. the client group for the courses or program receives educational or other services at a cost beyond what could be reasonably provided under state support" (a determination made by the Chancellor’s Office per Executive Order 1047, at Executive Order 1047.
The most recent revision of CSUSM’s policy on “Extended Learning's Roles and Responsibilities” (signed by President Haynes on June 27, 2012) indicates that CSUSM’s existing for-credit programs can be offered via Extended Learning if “approved by the Dean (or designee) of the College offering the programs, the Dean of Extended Learning (or designee), the CSUSM Academic Senate (via a policy to be developed by the BLP), and the President (or designee).” This proposed policy/procedure is intended to establish standards and procedures by which such a program expansion will be considered by the Academic Senate, once it is proposed by faculty from within a program. The appended template is derived from the P form.
The launching of self-support online versions of existing programs will need to be addressed in a separate policy, yet to be developed.
