ALTERNATIVE LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES
The educational philosophy is designed to give students an opportunity to move from the classroom into the community, from large lecture classes into small groups, from passive learning into active involvement, from being supervised and taught into supervising and teaching others. CIC offers Peer Counseling classes for those students who wish to understand themselves better and improve their helping relationship skills. In addition, work experience is available for exceptionally mature students who are capable of administering the program through membership on CIC staff.
For further information about the opportunities available, visit Building T-A or call 338-1486.
Residence Units. Students who work closely with an SFSU faculty member and develop an extensive portfolio regarding prior learning can earn a maximum of six residence units under one of the following course descriptions: BSS 250, CEEL 300, EDUC 250, or CHS 350.
Non-Residence Units. Through the portfolio process a student can earn a maximum of 30 units beyond the six (6) CEEL course credits above. These 30 units will be recorded on the SFSU transcript as "Advanced Standing" and are considered transfer credits. These units will not meet SFSU residence requirements toward the baccalaureate degree.
For further information, contact the Advising Center, ADM 212, 338-2101.
Amount of Credit. Credit for prior "Advanced Standing" will not exceed 30 units including any units for experiential learning which may be accepted as a result of California State University policy from other institutions. The faculty in any academic program may set additional limits on the number of experiential learning units accepted, or required, for majors or minors in that program.
Students who have scored in the bottom quartile of the Entry Level Mathematics test (370 and below) and/or English Placement Test (141 and below) are invited to an orientation meeting to enroll in special ILP classes. These classes are smaller in size (approximately eighteen students per class) along with special curriculum designed specifically to prepare students to succeed in first year composition (ENG 114) and/or with their quantitative reasoning requirement. The smaller classroom size and curriculum allow instructors to focus more attention on individual students. The progress of each ILP student is carefully monitored by the ILP staff.
Registration for The Washington Center credit involves the same registration procedures and fees as courses taught on campus. Credit (usually 9-12 units) is awarded through regular course offerings. The Washington Center has scholarships available to assist with housing, transportation, and other expenses. For additional information, contact the Career Center, ADM 211; 338-1761.
