Have you ever thought about taking a class to finish a degree, to get a better job, or for personal enrichment? Did you know you can do that at San Diego State University, without going through the process of being formally admitted?
SDSU classes are open to the public through the College of Extended Studies Open University program, which allows individuals to enroll in courses (on a space-available basis) without formal admission to the university. Summer classes start Thursday, May 21.
SDSU's College of Extended Studies reaches out with a wide variety of lifelong learning opportunities, and more than 50 certificate programs for career advancement. Topics range from contract management, construction, and craft beer, to grant writing, marketing, and human resources. And many programs are available online.
The CES also offers one of the largest ESL programs in the U.S. through the American Language Institute; and university-quality courses to students age 50 and better through the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute. Other opportunities include seminars, study abroad, corporate education and access to regular SDSU classes through Open University.
Registration for Open University is available online as well as at the Extended Studies registration window. The program allows SDSU students, high school graduates, working adults, and students from other universities to attend regular university classes once enrolled students have registered and classroom space is still available.
Certain restrictions apply. More information about Open University is available at www.neverstoplearning.net/openu or by calling (619) 265-7378 (SDSU).
