Students of color and first-generation students often arrive at the CSU with fewer Advanced Placement courses or dual enrollment credits, and they are more likely to maintain jobs while enrolled requiring more flexibility in their course schedule. As a result, their need for additional opportunities to earn CSU course credit is critical if they are to graduate in a timely manner. Summer sessions and intersessions provide these additional credit accumulation opportunities. Yet, many do not take advantage of these opportunities. With increased advisement support and additional funding of summer enrollment, students who may be falling behind in academic credits can be redirected to timely degree completion.
