Cal State Online has partnered with Quottly, Inc. to provide CSU students with convenient and affordable access to online courses statewide that fulfill general education requirements of CSU students. This partnership provides a course search and registration platform that offers classes taught through CSU and CCC campuses, complete with course transferability information.

Our platform makes course searching easy and accessible. First, choose your home school so that your search results will show you classes that will transfer back to your home institution. Next, choose to search by: A general education requirement or A specific course that can substitute for transfer credit at another CSU or California Community College or Keyword related to a course name or subject. Select Find Classes and browse your course options.

General Education Requirements are the requirements that all CSU students must meet in order to receive a bachelor’s degree. CSU Breadth Requirements are the requirements that all CSU students must meet in order to receive a bachelor’s degree. IGETC Requirements are a series of courses that prospective transfer students attending California Community Colleges complete to satisfy the lower-division breadth/general education requirements at CSU campuses. Course Name search allows you to enter an exact course code to find direct substitutes for that course at other universities. Keyword search allows you to enter a broader search term (Ex. Math) that will populate transferable courses that fit under that criteria.

After you find the course you want to take, select “start application” and complete the brief online application. A Quottly student experience specialist will be in contact to guide you through the application process to the Teaching College. Once accepted, the Teaching College will email instructions to set up your student portal and register for the course. Acceptance can take between 1-10 business days.

This is dependent on the Teaching College. Once you’ve been accepted, you will either be given a date to register or be allowed to register immediately.

No, only one application per course is necessary. We will take your application to that Teaching College and help you enroll in the courses you would like to take, saving you the trouble of filling out more paperwork.

OpenCCC is the application platform used by the CCCs. If you have attended a California Community College in the past, you will need to provide your correct OpenCCC login credentials in your CSO application, so that we can apply you to the Teaching College. These are different from your home school student account credentials.
