W

e get so spoiled by the gorgeous year-round weather here in San Diego that summer giving way to fall sometimes seems more like a scheduling shift than a seasonal change.

Growing up in a place with four seasons, though, I remember how fall’s cooling temperatures would coax people into a more productive and strategic mindset again. Perhaps it’s a holdover from times when looming winters required serious planning and provision. Here at the College of Extended Studies, our strategic planning takes place yearround, but it’s when autumn comes that I find myself taking the time to appreciate this planning process, and the benefits we harvest from it. So I’d like to make planning the theme of my brief address here, as you scan this catalog full of the many courses and programs we offer – ones that can help you refine and achieve your own strategic plans in the coming seasons and years. Here at CES, we’re constantly planning strategically, so that we can create training programs that will help you rise to the challenges the future will bring. For example, we’ve led the country in offering professional certificates in the green industry, but we continue to plan and develop new courses well ahead of the expanding green curve. This fall we’re offering two new green programs – Sustainable Practices and Green Energy Management – designed to give you the skills and knowledge you need to lead your own green initiatives, whether that means greening a home to increase its market value, assessing energy efficient technologies, or defining and implementing a green plan at work. Or take a look at national security, another area where real challenges loom ahead. We’re partnering with Cal Poly San Luis Obispo to offer a Professional Certificate in Disaster Management and Homeland Security for those focused on developing the specialized skills and knowledge it takes to respond effectively to emergencies and disasters. “Strategic planning is worthless,” says John Naisbitt, “unless there is first a strategic vision.” Here at CES, we envision a safer world, a greener world, a world of fast and seamless communication that includes people of all ages, a world led by effective and engaged leaders. Take a look at our new Professional Certificate in Digital Media, designed to give you the practical tools you need to reach new audiences in an online world. Explore our Certificate in Academic Literacy Development for English Language Learners, designed for professionals teaching critical communication skills to language learners of all ages and backgrounds. And don’t miss the most recent addition to our outstanding sequence of leadership programs, the newlydesigned Professional Certificate in Core Leadership and Management. Eleanor Roosevelt once said, “It takes as much energy to wish as it does to plan.” If summer is a season of wishing, then fall is for planning the future, and making it happen. Take the first step. Join us in one of our innovative professional programs this fall. Never stop learning,

Joseph B. Shapiro Dean

Open University Certificate Programs General Information Certificate programs are a key educational offering from SDSU’s College of Extended Studies. Thousands of people have benefited from completing an SDSU certificate program, and these programs continue to be one of the core competencies of the college. Expanding to meet the needs of the workforce, the college now offers many types of certificate programs including: professional certificates, open university

certificates, technology-related certificates, and online certificates. Certificates are recognized by most employers as a significant academic accomplishment, and can lead to new jobs as well as promotions for those who obtain them. They are also typically more relevant and focused for today’s workforce than academic degrees and can be completed in a much shorter period of time.

Frequently Asked Questions Do you have to be a matriculated student to take Open University Certificate programs?

Are the courses for credit, and can they be applied toward a degree?

You do not have to be matriculated to SDSU to enroll in an undergraduate Open University Certificate program. However, all students who are participating in an Advanced Graduate Certificate Program must APPLY to the University through CSU Mentor and be admitted to the university. This requires completing the application and submitting official transcripts that confirm that the student has a bachelor’s degree from an accredited institution. Department application and admissions processes cannot substitute (though they may complement) the formal application and admissions process through CSU Mentor and Graduate Admissions. Students can earn no more than nine units prior to formally matriculating into the University. Students must be admitted into the University either prior to beginning their coursework, or in a semester where they are actively enrolled in program coursework. A student cannot retroactively apply to the University in order to be awarded a certificate for coursework already completed. Open University certificate programs are not open to students currently enrolled at SDSU.

Open University Certificate programs are offered for credit. Twenty-four units of non‑matriculated resident credit may be applied toward an SDSU undergraduate degree.

What are the Financial Aid Options? CES students are encouraged to check with various banks, credit unions, and lending institutions – many of which now offer private alternative loan programs for continuing education. If you are an SDSU matriculated student you may also wish to check with the SDSU financial aid office at (619) 594-6323. For additional information, please contact the CES registration office at (619) 594-5152.

How do I sign up? To obtain an application form for an undergraduate certificate program and brochure, please call the certificate programs department at (619) 594-6255. For advanced graduate certificate programs, see the first FAQ regarding CSU Mentor. You will then need to contact the SDSU department academic advisor and determine a plan of study. All available classes are published in the University’s course bulletin. A $35 application processing fee will be charged. Please make checks payable to SDSU Research Foundation.

Are Open University Certificate programs available to international students? International students who have satisfied the prerequisites may apply for admission to an Open University Certificate program. A TOEFL score of 550, or its equivalent, is required. However, Open University Certificate programs are not available to international students with an I-20 visa issued by another university. Contact the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) for more information.

What is the cost? Open University Certificate programs cost $197 per unit.

College of Extended Studies Registration Information Noncredit Noncredit courses receive no academic credit and are used for personal enrichment only. We cannot confirm completion of noncredit courses. If you plan to ask your instructor for verification of participation, you must attend all sessions and complete all assignments. Continuing Education Units The College of Extended Studies awards Continuing Education Units (CEUs) to persons enrolled in, and completing certain noncredit programs. One continuing education unit is defined as ten contact hours of participation in an organized continuing education experience under responsible sponsorship, capable direction, and qualified instruction. The primary purpose of the CEU is to provide a permanent record of the educational accomplishments of an individual who has completed a noncredit educational program. This record can be used to give employers and professional associations and societies a uniform measure of short-term educational programs completed by an individual. CEUs are not academic units and cannot be applied to degree work at institutions of higher education. Open University Course Credit Open University course credit is nonmatriculated resident credit. Students who have not been admitted to the University will still receive resident credit. Twenty-four units of Open University Credit may be applied toward an SDSU undergraduate degree. For graduate students, not more than nine units of coursework taken in Open University prior to admission to an advanced degree or advanced certificate are acceptable on a program of study. Grades earned through Open University become part of the student’s SDSU scholastic average.

Grading Procedures/Auditing and CR/NC

Auditors must pay the same fee as those taking the course for credit but will not be required to take examinations and will not receive a final grade. You may change from credit to audit, or letter grade to CR/NC, only during the first half of a credit Extension course. To change status, complete an audit card at the College of Extended Studies registration office. Classes offered Credit/No Credit only may not be taken for a letter grade. For Open University grade change deadlines see page 53.

Teacher Education

Only a limited number of Extension credits may be applied toward a teaching credential. If you need assistance in your choice of courses, contact the College of Education. While most Extension courses are acceptable toward teachers’ salary advancement requirements, teachers should contact their district office regarding the applicability of specific courses. Courses numbered TE X-397 or ED X997 are not acceptable for degree or credential pattern requirements but may be used as in-service credits only.

Course Numbering

Courses numbered 80-99 are non-baccalaureate level and are not acceptable for a bachelor’s degree or general education requirement. Those numbered 100 through 299 are lower division (freshman and sophomore years); those numbered 300 through 499 are upper division (junior and senior years) and are intended for undergraduates. Those numbered 500 through 599 are upper division and also apply to advanced degrees when taken by students admitted to graduate standing. Those numbered 600 through 799 are strictly graduate courses; those numbered 800 through 899 are doctoral courses. Course numbers at the 900 level are reserved for graduate courses in certain professional curricula as part of advanced certificate, credential, and licensure programs and are specifically intended for students admitted to the University with postbaccalaureate classified standing. Courses numbered at the 900 level are not applicable to other graduate programs. Courses numbered X-01 through X-79, X-397, and X-997 are professional advancement units offered only through Extension to meet specific academic needs of community groups. Courses X-01 through X-49 are designated as lower division and X-50 through X-79 and X-397 are designated as upper division. It is the prerogative of the academic department/college to determine if X-01 through X-79 level courses are applicable to a major, a minor, or toward specified electives. The X-01 through X-79 level courses are offered in conjunction with certificate programs only. Courses at the X-01 through X-79 level are not acceptable on advanced degree programs. Courses offered as X-397 and X-997 are not acceptable toward an undergraduate or graduate degree. Extended Studies students who eventually plan to pursue an undergraduate degree at SDSU should consult the sponsoring academic department to ascertain the applicability of X-01 through X-79 level courses offered in any certificate program toward their proposed course of study.

Transcripts (for credit courses only)

All transcripts come from the SDSU Office of the Registrar. To get an official transcript, submit a written request to the University Cashier’s Office or the Extended Studies Cashier’s Office.
