The Achievement Grant, along with your tuition assistance benefits, covers 100% of eligible employees’ tuition and fees.
CalSouthern has been educating learners since 1978. In 2005, CalSouthern implemented its own proprietary learning management system that extended online educational opportunities to all learners. We are one of the few institutionally accredited universities to combine 100% online programs in psychology, business, education, nursing and criminal justice with experienced faculty, monthly course-starts and a personal touch highlighted by one-on-one guidance.
At CalSouthern, we assist working professionals who want to realize the benefits of a bachelor’s, master’s or doctoral degree but have been held back by finances, geographic isolation, job, family and other constraints.
Discover what thousands of students and alumni already know: CalSouthern has the people and proprietary online programs to help you achieve your academic goals.
Our online programs allow you to learn and study when it's convenient for you. And monthly course starts enable you to take courses at your own pace.
Our degree and certificate programs are centered around experience-based curriculum and are taught by qualified faculty mentors who are actively working in the field.
We've embraced remote learning from the beginning, and we've been perfecting our craft ever since. We have proven that a quality education does not require four walls.
"The faculty mentors were very knowledgeable, and available when you needed assistance. My learner support specialist was very helpful and ensured that I stayed on track throughout the entire process. Attending CalSouthern was a great experience!"
