Complete College Georgia to improve college graduation rates! Under the direction of Governor Nathan Deal’s Complete College Georgia initiative, the University System of Georgia (USG) and the Technical College System of Georgia (TSSG) must address the critical need to produce an additional estimated 250,000 graduates with certificate, associate or bachelor’s degree over the next eight years to meet future job requirements. Clayton State University is ready to help you succeed in completing a degree! We offer college math preparation, speed reading and the opportunity to get college credits for prior learning by taking CLEP exams in the Testing Center. Statistics show that adults who are placed in remediation math in college after taking the Compass placement exam have a very low graduation rate. Avoid the risk of failing to reach your dream of obtaining a college degree (and incurring additional debt.) Enroll now in our hybrid math course….12 classroom sessions and access to the online curriculum for up to one year before you take the Compass exam. You will leave the course with confidence and the skills to take college algebra. See page 2 for more information. Speed Reading for adults, college students and entering high school students will help you learn to read three times faster while improving comprehension, concentration and retention. See page 16. Consider testing out of university courses this summer with the College-Level Examination Program (CLEP). CLEP is offered twice a month at Clayton State University’s Testing Center; see http://adminservices.clayton.edu/testingcenter/CLEP.htm.

What Our Students are Saying … “The instructor was more than helpful. The objectives were met and I learned a lot in the short window of time. The class was great.” —Anita Pettus, Sewing Basics

“It was a really fun class! Thank you, Kelly!”

Is this your dream?

Teach With Us! Kathryn Wood Floral Design Instructor Kathryn Wood has had a love of flowers all her life. Growing up on a large farm in a small town in Alabama gave her an appreciation for nature. The abundance of fresh flowers she encountered while spending time in Germany while serving in the U. S. Army fueled her desire to someday own her own flower shop. That dream was realized when she bought Rex Florist in 1992. She grew the business from an 800 square foot building to a 2800 square foot store in Eagle’s Landing before selling her interest in 2011.

—Starla Hobby, Cake Decorating Basics

“Cassandra is very knowledgeable about ASL. She is patient and kind and takes the time to answer all of our concerns. I would highly recommend her to anyone interested in ASL.” —Angel McElveen, American Sign Language 1

She earned her Georgia Master Florist Certification through the Georgia State Florist Association and was active in the organization throughout her career as a retail florist. She won the Adelle Bartlett Trophy for Professional design at the Southeastern Flower show in 1999. Kathryn loves to share her knowledge and love for flowers with her students and appreciates the opportunity CSU ConEd has given her.

Digital Photography Hands-On Immersion Would you like to take better pictures, consistently? Do you want to get more organized with your digital photo collection, or edit your digital images to make each one look its best? In just two Saturday sessions, this hands-on course covers the skills that are needed to become a better digital photographer. It begins with camera skills. The course explains the purpose of those unfamiliar controls found on digital cameras, and how they can be used to get better results. Students will learn how to avoid exposure mistakes and how exposure controls can be used to create dramatic photographic effects. You will also learn valuable shooting techniques: how to choose the right lighting, when and how to use flash, and easy techniques for better photo composition. The second skill is organization. Students will learn how to manage a growing collection of images on the computer, how to save steps when downloading images from the camera and how to back up photo collections for safekeeping. You will also learn software tools for “tagging” images so they are easy to find later and how to automate the process of emailing images. The third skill is image editing. The course will help you choose the right software for your needs. It demonstrates how to improve any image with a basic edit (brightness, contrast, color balance, retouching) by doing the right steps in the right order. It also covers the powerful RAW file format, and how RAW impacts the editing workflow process. Please bring your camera, the instruction manual, and all your questions. If you have a laptop with Adobe Photoshop Elements (version 4 or higher), bring it to class and practice the computer skills as they are demonstrated! 131CLEI205 Sat Jul 14-21 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM CE Main Campus 2 Sessions $129 with Jestein Futrell, professional photographer

CHILDREN: Most of our courses have been developed for adult learners, therefore, we have a minimum age of 16 years to attend our courses. Unattended children are not allowed at any of our continuing education locations due to safety reasons. CLAYTON STATE UNIVERSITY LIBRARY PRIVILEGES: As a Clayton State University Continuing Education student, you may use the Clayton State University Library during the time that you are enrolled in continuing education courses. Please take a copy of your CE receipt and a valid Georgia driver's license to the library to utilize resource materials and to check out books. Please check the website for current operating hours: http://adminservices.clayton.edu/library/default.htm IACET AUTHORIZED PROVIDER: The Clayton State University Center for Continuing Education has been approved as an Authorized Provider by the International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET), 1760 Old Meadow Road, Suite 500, McLean, VA 22102; (703) 506-3275. The International Association for Continuing Education and Training is a non-profit association dedicated to quality continuing education and training programs. IACET accredits education providers that meet strict continuing education guidelines based on the ANSI/IACET 12007 Standard. IACET accreditation is the standard learners seek for quality when they choose a provider. INCLEMENT WEATHER: In the case of any weather that might cause a disruption in the normal events, Clayton State University has an Emergency Weather Plan that includes the Office of University Relations contacting a wide variety of Metro Atlanta news media outlets that report weather-related closings. In case of a weather related closing, or any other type of emergency closing, the University has an extensive media contact list for such emergency situations. For information about all radio and TV outlets that will be contacted upon closing, please visit the University’s main webpage at www.clayton.edu. During any potential emergency weather situation, information about Clayton State’s plans will also be available on the University’s web page and through the University’s main telephone number (678-466-4000). Please do not call the Office of Public Safety, or the Office of University Relations. At times of bad weather or other emergencies, University officials make decisions on whether or not to close the campus based on public safety reports and other considerations. In such cases, the safety and security of the majority of students is a prime consideration. If the University is closed, then classes are cancelled for all students. If the institution remains open, we recognize that there may be special circumstances that pertain to individual students that are more serious than those that apply to the majority. So, students are advised to use their best judgment about their safety and that of their families in those situations, and to consult with individual faculty members about making up lost time. In the event that other instructional sites are closed, every effort will be made to contact students and instructors by phone and/or email. OUR BUILDING AND OFFICES WILL BE CLOSED THE FOLLOWING DATES: May 26 - 28, July 4 and Sept. 3

Three business days prior to the start date, if we do not have sufficient enrollment to cover our costs, we may have to cancel or postpone the course. We will notify students by phone and email.
