Compliance Training

Compliance training is required of all CSU employees.

How-To Guides(opens in new window) for navigating CSU Learn are available online for both employees and managers.

New Employees

New state employees (faculty, staff, management, and student employees) need to complete online compliance courses no later than 30 days after their first day of work. Employees can begin taking training before it has been assigned by selecting the required Online Compliance Courses below. Staff and management employees will be introduced to and have some time to complete compliance training as part of new employee onboarding. Student employees should work with their supervisor to schedule time and location to complete the online training.

You will be automatically assigned training through the CSU employee training system, CSU Learn, a week or two before your first paycheck. Please watch for emails from

CSU Learn Notifications

CSU Learn will send you confirmation of workshops in which you've enrolled, as well as reminders of compliance training that is expiring and needs to be retaken. Sometimes these reminders may go to Junk Mail or Clutter. Please setup your email to accept these reminders.

Student Employees & Employee Email Accounts

In compliance with EM 16-004(opens in new window), the Account Center automatically creates employee email (Exchange) accounts for all student employees. This “Exchange” email account receives official employee information, including notices to complete required compliance training.

Student employees may elect to redirect (i.e., auto-forward) these messages to their student WildcatMail account.

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, depending on the employee’s last completion date prior to CSU Learn rollout, and makes use of a fixed annual due date (October 1) after the initial course completion:

Example of course assignments
AudienceLast Completion DateAssignment
New and OverdueNever, or before 10/01/2017Assign immediately, due within 30 days
Due 2019Between 10/01/2017 and 09/30/2018Assign 09/01/2019, due 10/01/2019
Due 2020Between 10/01/2018 and afterAssign 9/01/2020, due 10/01/2020

Date ranges were set up to transition to a fixed annual due date, in consultation with the course owner, campus enterprise training collaborative, and CSU recommendations.
