Summer session offers more than 650 classes

March 16, 2011 -- Students can choose from more than 650 classes offered during the University's summer session. With classes as wide-ranging as biology and accounting as well as dozens of General Education courses, summer session is an opportunity for current students to get ahead with their studies. It is also open to prospective students and members of the public who wish to earn academic credit during the summer.

Students must register and pay for summer session classes through SF State's College of Extended Learning. Classes will be available in four sessions: June 6 to July 8, June 20 to August 12, July 11 to August 12 and June 6 to August 12. For a full schedule of summer 2011 classes, visit:
