An online computer science and technology college has received a $25.5 million state grant to improve its online learning offerings.
The college, called Computer Equalizer, aims to help students improve their performance online, according to the California Department of Education.
The state department’s program provides grants for educational projects for disadvantaged students and for community-based initiatives.
Computer Equalization’s principal is a professor in computer science at the University of California, Santa Barbara.
The grant is the largest single grant for the college since 2010.
Computer equalizer students can learn online at Cal State University, Fresno, the college’s website says.
The students can apply for online classes online or at the college in person.
The program also offers online coursework and tutoring.
The California Education Agency, which oversees California public schools, said it awarded Computer Equalizers the $25,000 grant because it is the first time the state has awarded a statewide funding to an online program.
The agency says it will continue to support the program as the state seeks to increase its online enrollment.
