Spring 2017 Distance Learning Courses

Young Scholars distance learning courses are California State University Dominguez Hills courses taught on television and the Internet. Students who successfully complete a Young Scholars Distance Learning course will have three semester units recorded on a Dominguez Hills transcript. High schools can choose to give a student high school credit for successfully completing the Young Scholars distance learning course but that decision is at the discretion of the high school.

​All of the Young Scholars distance learning courses are broadcast live each week on cable television in Southern California and webcast on the Internet. Students who cannot view the classes live can watch the archived videos at youtube.com/csudhtv.
