Budget cutbacks to California’s state-funded universities have resulted in fewer classes and reduced student enrollment. The online system is expected to increase class availability.
However, participation by campuses on the quarter system, such as Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo, is less likely because the online classes are slated to be semester-based.
Participation in the online university program by each campuses will be voluntary.
