Campus: CSU, Stanislaus -- February 8, 2000

Enrollment Opens For Special Pilot Summer Course Program

California State University, Stanislaus is now accepting applications for a special pilot program that provides state-supported summer classes in addition to the wide selection of courses offered through University Extended Education.

The application period for new students in the 17 specially-funded classes continues through May 12. After that, applications will be accepted with an additional $15 processing charge until June 8. Classes are scheduled on three tracks - starting June 12, July 10, and July 24.

Courses being offered through this pilot program include criminal justice, education, nursing, social work, and mathematics. Classes will be conducted at the Turlock campus as well as the University's Stockton and Merced sites. Students starting the teacher credential program are asked to submit their credential applications beginning February 28 and continuing through March.

In offering the classes, CSU Stanislaus is participating in a pilot program being conducted by the California State University Chancellor's Office at 10 CSU campuses to explore the need for year-round operations in the system.

"This will give students additional flexibility to take classes during the summer at a reduced cost," said Dr. June Boffman, a CSU Stanislaus Professor of Nursing serving as Year-Round Project Director and Associate Dean of the College of Arts, Letters, and Sciences. "It's part of an effort by the University to meet the needs of students in the region."

Fees for the pilot summer classes will be $105 per unit for undergraduates and $110 for graduate students, plus a small student fee. Students currently enrolled for the Spring semester that begins February 16 are eligible to register for Summer term. New students must meet University admission requirements and supply official college transcripts.

More than 150 courses are also available in all disciplines through the University Extended Education Summer Session. Students have three sessions to choose from of four, five, and six weeks, with starting dates of June 12 and July 24. The priority mail-in registration period is April 17 through June 2, and no formal University application is necessary. Most classes are $125 per unit, with the exception of individual study, thesis, and laboratory courses.

Part of the $194,000 grant funds provided to CSU Stanislaus for the pilot summer program will go toward exploring the feasibility of going to a regular year-round program that includes a state-funded summer term. With enrollment demand projected to dramatically increase over the next 10 years, the CSU is focusing on year-round operations as one way to accommodate that growth.
