Open Enrollment Now Available for CSUSM Summer Term

Open Enrollment Now Available for CSUSM Summer Term

Open enrollment is now available for Summer Term classes at California State University San Marcos (CSUSM) which incorporates over 100 courses in a wide range of fields and disciplines. Students from other colleges and universities, qualified high school seniors, and community members can register for classes in everything from chemistry to women’s studies. Credits from CSUSM Summer Term courses are fully transferrable to other accredited colleges and universities in the United States. For students already enrolled at CSUSM, and for high school or community college students who may be interested in CSUSM, up to 24 units can be counted toward a CSUSM degree.

“Many college students find it hard to graduate in four years, especially if they have difficulty enrolling in a required course,” says Mike Schroder, Dean of Extended Learning and Associate Vice President of Global Programs and Services at CSUSM. “CSUSM Summer Term is the perfect opportunity for students from any college or university to pick up the credits that gets them closer to completing their degree.”

Whether students are looking for prerequisites for higher-level classes, core curriculum offerings, or degree-specific classes, they can likely find what they need among the summer offerings at CSUSM. College-bound high school seniors can also get a jump on their freshman year by getting introductory courses and general education requirements under their belts.

CSUSM Summer Term 2017 runs from June 5 to August 12. The first block runs from June 5 to July 8 and the second block runs from July 10 to August 12. To learn more, call Extended Learning at 760-750-4004, or visit www.csusm.edu/el/summer17.

Registration is now open for CSUSM’s course in Water Management Fundamentals

San Marcos, CA – Registration is now open for the “Survey of Water Management Fundamentals and Practice in California” course offered through Extended Learning at California State University San Marcos (CSUSM). While open to all interested in the water industry, this course is also the required core class for the Water Management and Leadership Certificate program that will continue through the summer of 2017.

Developed in collaboration with local industry leaders including the Vallecitos Water District, this core class incorporates the study of regional water usage and sources, disposal and recycling, water infrastructure, impact of water shortage as well as career opportunities in water management. Participants will meet for eight three-hour evening lectures by the leading water resources expert, Ken Weinberg, and other local water experts, and two Saturday tours of local state-of-the-art water facilities.

The initial survey course will be offered at the San Marcos campus on Tuesday evenings beginning March 29 from 6:00-8:50 pm. To register or to learn more about the Water Management Program or the Survey Course, please contact Alan Styles at astyles@csusm.edu or visit www.csusm.edu/el/water.

Information Session at CSUSM: Pre-Health Professions (PHP) Program

CSUSM

 

 

 

 

 

What:      Free Information Session for the Pre-Health Professions (PHP) Program

Where:    Cal State San Marcos, 333 S. Twin Oaks Valley Road, San Marcos, CA 92096

When:     Wednesday, February 25, 2015, 5:00 – 6:00 p.m.

                       Foundation Classroom Building (FCB104)

 

Why:         Many post-baccalaureate individuals decide to change their careers and enter the expanding health industry. This post-baccalaureate program will prepare students who have completed a non-life-science degree in areas such as anthropology, English or psychology to gain the knowledge base required to become competitive applicants to health professional schools such as dental school, medical school or veterinary school.  However, this goal is not easily realized because the subjects of mathematics, physics, chemistry and biology are heavily impacted at nearly every university. At CSUSM, the cohort design of the Pre-Health Professions program will help alleviate this problem, and will meet student needs for preparation to competitively qualify for admissions into health professions programs.

Facts about the Pre-Health Professions (PHP) program:

  • Comprises 51 credits/units of biology, chemistry, math and physics
    •    13 courses, including eight with labs, to be completed over two years
    •    Classes are held weekday evenings over five semesters (Fall, Spring, Summer, Fall, Spring)
    •    Cohort structure guarantees classes
    •    Up-to-date courses help prepare for MCAT, etc.
