Community Education


CI Extended University aims to meet the needs of our community beyond degrees and formal certificate programs. The following opportunities are available to business and community members in our service territory:

Customized Workplace Training

If you are an employer and want to train your employees on a particular skill or topic, or need a unique schedule or on-site instruction, we can customize a program that meets your needs.

Open University

Open University provides an opportunity for non-CI students to take CI undergraduate courses.  Up to 24 units of credit through Open University may be applied toward a baccalaureate degree at CI.

Society For Human Resource Management Training

In partnership with the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), CSU Channel Islands offers an Essentials of Human Resource Management course and a CP/SCP Certification Preparatory Course.  Both courses are offered at our Thousand Oaks campus.
