Extended Learning is the college of the university that is responsible for all program and course offerings not supported by state appropriations. These include Summer and Winter Sessions, continuing education courses, Open University, travel study programs, contract courses, professional training series, and certificate programs. In contrast with degree programs which require matriculation and a degree objective, most Extended Learning programs allow any adult and selected high school students to participate. The primary objective of Extended Learning is to augment the regular university offerings and to provide further educational opportunities for all who wish to gain new knowledge and skills or to enhance those already acquired.
CONTINUING EDUCATION PROGRAMS
Continuing education is the medium through which the resources, skills, and talents of San Francisco State University are extended into the larger San Francisco area community. The continuing education program is designed for those who are unable to take university degree courses but who wish to pursue university-level study for purposes of resuming an interrupted or uncompleted education, to augment professional or vocational abilities, or to enhance personal growth and fulfillment.
THE OPEN UNIVERSITY (CONCURRENT ENROLLMENT)
Many of the courses offered to regularly enrolled San Francisco State University students are also available to continuing education students through Open University on a space available basis. Students enrolling through Open University earn residence credit which can be applied with limitations toward degrees. For baccalaureate degrees, SFSU will accept up to 24 semester units of credit earned through Open University registration. For graduate degrees, SFSU will generally accept, with adviser's approval, up to six semester units of credit earned through Open University.
CREDIT PARTNERS (CONTRACT EDUCATION)
Extended Learning offers Bay Area employers and organizations the service of reviewing their planned or existing in-house training programs for university or professional credit.
The Summer Sessions program is designed for regularly enrolled students who wish to accelerate progress toward a degree or credential; prospective students who wish to begin course work while admission to the university is in process; members of the community who wish to enroll in a course or courses for professional advancement or personal enrichment; and visitors who wish to take advantage of San Francisco State University's faculty and curriculum during the summer months.
Maximum Unit Load
Certificates are awarded when participants complete the required number of units or courses for the program, and other requirements, as stipulated. Students may enroll in up to nine units before applying to a certificate program.
The certificate programs can be found in the Academic Programs section of this Bulletin. Consult Index for page reference.
