At CalSouthern, you are never alone.
In the 42 years we have been pioneering distance learning, providing the highly personalized support you wouldn’t expect to find in online education has been a constant priority.
Every CalSouthern learner is assigned a personal support team consisting of a learner support specialist, faculty mentors and a dean. Professionals dedicated to your success, these experts are here to ensure you have the resources you need to achieve your goals.
Unique to CalSouthern, our faculty mentors are educators who double as experienced, working professionals in the fields they teach. They are singularly committed to working one-on-one with students to help them apply CalSouthern coursework to their careers, businesses and other real-world situations.
Most important and unlike other online programs, CalSouthern faculty mentors are available by email and phone to ensure learners receive the most personalized, career-relevant experience possible.
Beyond your core support team, you’ll have access to a University Librarian who can personally assist you with your academic research and citation needs, as well as a team of IT specialists eager to help you unlock the many technological advances of our proprietary online learning system.
It’s all part of an unwavering learner-centric focus that begins at first contact with your admissions representative and continues through to graduation – even into your years as part of the CalSouthern Alumni Association.
We invite you to see what a community of support looks like. Reach out to discuss your degree plan, transfer credits, interest-free payment options, and estimate the total cost of your tuition.
