COVID-19: General Impact on EEGO Operations and Instruction
Last Updated: March 17, 2020
Per the directive announced on March 12, 2020, by CSUB President Lynette Zelezny, and subsequent directive by the CSU Chancellor's Office on March 17, 2020, CSUB Extended Education is working to transition our face-to-face course offerings to alternative modes of instruction (online, videoconferencing, etc.). The exact mode of instruction moving forward will vary by program. You can review the plans for each degree program here. Certificate program plans are available here.
Additionally, the Extended Education office is now closed to the public as of March 17, 2020 at 5 p.m. Staff will be working remotely until further notice. More details about the office closure are available here.
CSUB Extended Education will be following the transition plan set forth by the President and the CSU. Here is the latest timeline for the transition:
Monday, March 16 – Tuesday, March 17, 2020:
Face-to-face classes are allowed to meet but voluntary conversion to alternate modalities is encouraged. If your face-to-face course is transitioning to another mode during this period, you’ll receive next steps from your instructor(s). If you do not hear from your instructor regarding any change, you should assume in-person classes will be held and plan to attend. However, if you are feeling sick, please do not come to campus and reach out directly to your instructor(s) explaining your situation. In-person instruction will cease at 10 p.m. on Tuesday, March 17.
Wednesday, March 18 – Sunday, March 22, 2020
All in-person instruction for all programs will pause during this period. However, programs that are 100% online will continue without disruption.
Monday, March 23 – Thursday, March 26, 2020:
All instruction (including previously paused and 100% online courses) will be suspended for students to give faculty time to prepare and transition their courses to alternative delivery. No classes will be held during this period. Field-based assignments, internships, and clinical placements will continue during this period if the site is still hosting student placements.
Friday, March 27 – Tuesday, May 19, 2020:
All courses will be conducted with alternative delivery. There will be no in-person finals unless approved by the dean and provost.

Student Frequently Asked Questions
Below, we've compiled a list of frequently asked questions to help inform students as instruction is transitioned. We'll be adding to this section over the next few days.
This is currently being worked out on a program-by-program basis. More information will be available soon via our website and email.
Computer labs at the CSUB Library will remain open and available to students in all of our programs. Additionally, once you hear from your instructor that your program is being transitioned from in-person to online, please reach out to your instructor to make alternative arrangements if necessary.
The CSUB main campus has created a COVID-19 section of their website that covers this transition plan and many other topics in detail. You can find that website here.
