[Supervisors: After an employee is in active pay status in PeopleSoft-HR, please allow three nights (for overnight processes) to pass before asking the employee to check email for training notices.]

Employees can begin taking training after it has been auto-assigned. Employees should work with their supervisor to schedule time to complete the online training. Please watch for emails from

Student Employees Email Accounts

Compliance Course Assignment Process

In CSU Learn, courses are assigned to groups of employees called audiences. Course assignments occur nightly and courses may have rolling or fixed due dates. Assignment of a course depends on the audience rules, course due date, and when/if the employee last completed the course.

For example, Title IX is set up with several audiences and makes use of a fixed annual due date (October 1) after the initial course completion.
