Extended Education offers summer classes

California State University, Stanislaus Extended Education Program is offering summer courses starting June 10 for those students pursuing a rapid graduation.
Summer sessions are open to everyone from current to former CSU Stanislaus students, high school students, adult learners and students from other colleges and universities.
The registration period for all summer sessions is April 8 through May 31 on mycsustan.edu. There will be no late adds or class drops after May 31.
A maximum of 12 units is permitted, space is limited and classes are subject to cancellation due to low enrollment.
Students may find it beneficial to take summer sessions when classes are in high demand.
“The class I’m taking during summer is hard to get into during regular semester because it’s a prerequisite to other courses for my major,” Kristin Blocher (junior, Kinesiology) said. “It’s nice to get it out of the way in a shorter time frame rather than to stress about it later with a bad registration date.”
Other students agreed with Blocher on the difficulty of getting into high-demand classes during regular semesters.
“You are more likely to get a class that you need to take during summer than you would during spring or fall,” Maria Casillas (junior, Social Science) said. “My concern is to get ahead and retake previous units.”
Tuition fees for the Extended Education Summer Sessions are less expensive than those of a part time student during Spring semester.
However, some students still feel the tuition is too high.
“My parents aren’t too happy with the cost, but it makes them feel better to know that it is cheaper than a regular semester,” Blocher said. “We all see it as one step closer towards graduation.”
Financial aid and installment payment plans are available for those who qualify. For more information contact the University Extended Education office at 209-667-3111.
