New Student Online Orientation

Cal U Global Online is a worldwide learning community providing quality academic programs, delivered completely over the Internet. Course requirements such as e-mail, discussions, chats, readings, tests and web resources are delivered asynchronously, so that you can log on and complete your school work when it's convenient for you. Feel free to work at home, from the office or on vacation, in the early morning or late at night, wherever and whenever you want. It is the perfect way for you to reach your educational goals while maintaining a normal work and home life.

Is Online Learning Right for You?

Use this online orientation as a starting point to determine if web-based coursework is a good fit for you. It will also provide a step-by-step guide to understanding more about California University of Pennsylvania, and allow you to "test drive" our course management system - Desire2Learn - to see first-hand how the web courses work.

If you have any questions while you are completing this orientation, feel free contact the Global Online Office for assistance. You can either fill out the the Online Information Request Form, e-mail us at, or call 724-938-5958 or 1-866-595-6348.
