This summer, the Online Education Initiative (OEI) partnered with CSU Online to launch an online course finder called ‘Finish Faster!’ that provides students with access to more than 10,000 online, transferable classes. The new course finder gives CSU students the flexibility to complete lower-division general education requirements during the summer through online coursework offered at a California Community College or CSU campus.
Between May 21 and July 1 of this year, nearly 1,600 unique users have performed a course search on the OEI website, and of those, 205 completed an application at a California community college. The launch of the course finder was accompanied by an ad campaign which targeted students throughout the state, resulting in approximately 43,000 clicks on digital advertisements and more than 15 million total impressions.
